Intimation issued by AO is appealable where fee is charged for delay in filing of TDS returns


a) The issue arising in this appeal was against the intimation issued under section 200A in charging fees payable under section 234E.

b) The CIT(A) held that no appeal was maintainable against the order of AO passed under Section 200A while processing the TDS returns and charging fees under Section 234E. The ITAT held as under:

1) The Legislature recognizes that a deductor who has filed his TDS return, which, in turn, has been processed by the AO and intimation is generated under which, if any amount is found to be payable, then such intimation is also appealable under section 246A since the demand issued by the AO is deemed to be a notice of payment under section 156.

2) Since the intimation issued by the AO was appealable order under section 246A(1)(a) of the Act, therefore, the CIT(A) should have examined the legality of adjustment made under intimation issued under section 200A.- [2016] 74 taxmann.com 6 (Pune - Trib.)
