Here are five things to know
In its notification dated September 22, the Income Tax Department asked taxpayers to update their online profiles and details on the official e-filing portal to ensure an "effective communication".
The taxpayers are required to furnish their latest information - such as personal and secondary email/mobile number, address and bank account details.
These details will be verified and processed after the taxpayer is sent a One Time Password or OTP over the email and through an SMS over the phone.
"A taxpayer can do any business using their personal e- filing account only after updating the details," the agency cited the official as saying.
