Active Taxpayer List (ATL)

Inclusion in ATL

A person’s name will be part of the current ATL, if the Tax Return filed pertains to the Tax year of the relevant ATL. For example, to be part of the ATL published on 1st March 2018, a person must have filed a Tax return for the Tax year 2017. Similarly, to be a part of the ATL published on 1st March 2019, a person must have filed a Tax Return for the Tax year 2018.

Restriction on including a person’s name on ATL, if the person has not filed Tax Return by the due date specified by Income tax authorities was introduced through Finance Act, 2018. For example, to be part of the ATL published on 1st March 2019, a person must file a Tax Return by the specified due date for the Tax year 2018.

However, through Finance Act, 2019 a person’s name can be part of ATL, even if the person has filed Tax Return after the due date specified by Income Tax authorities.

Furthermore, a surcharge for placement on ATL after due date of filing of Tax Return will be charged as under:

A company or an AOP shall be included in the ATL, whose return is not to be filed due to incorporation or formation after 30th day of June relevant to the Tax year pertaining to the ATL.

Joint account holders as an entity shall be deemed to be part of ATL if any of the persons in the joint account have met the criteria of being included in the ATL.
