Notice under sec 221 is issued when there is default in payment of tax.

 

Is this an online notice ? then please submit the response by logging into your portal.  If this is manual, please visit the officer and explain him the matter with documents.  Also, draft a letter to be submitted to the officer.  I would be glad to further discuss over a call and draft suitable response, in case you need any assistance.

Hi

 

Yes we can assist you.

As per section 221(1), if a taxpayer is treated as an assessee in default, then he shall be liable to pay penalty of such an amount as the Assessing Officer may impose. ... Thus, penalty under section 221(1) is a general penalty and can be levied in all the cases in which the taxpayer is treated as an assessee in default

Dear Sir,

 

Notice under section 221 is issued in case of outstanding tax demands. 

 

To know the reason, please click on the "Recovery Process" in proceeding name column and in the next window, click on the number in the "Notice/Communication Reference ID" column. Another window will pop up and you can then download the pdf file of the notice, which will contain the details of outstanding tax payments.

 

In case you need any clarification or assistance in preparing the response, you may contact me on yogeshmalpani96@gmail

- Section 221 is a penalty section when there is default in payment of tax. First check for which year notice is issued and then check whether there is any demand outstanding for such year.
