The countdown for the Budget 2016 has begun. From average taxpayer to tax experts, all eyes are transfixed on the Union Budget 2016. Every year 'Taxmann' comes out with its expectations from the Union Budget. In our expectations for the Union Budget 2014 and 2015, we predicted as well as suggested certain changes consisting of substantive and procedural changes which were published in  47 taxmann.com 120 (Article),  54 taxmann.com 416 (Article) and  32 CPT 253 (Article). It is to our credit that many of our predictions came true in the Union Budget.
This time also we have recommended substantive/procedural changes and various other matters which CBDT should clarify to end the controversy and to bring about certainty in the Income-tax laws.
