Note: Once the Tax Official has issued Notice against your case, Status will be "Complaint filed". It will get changed to "Closed" when the Tax Official closes the case in any of the following cases:

  • If you file the application for compounding of offence and the same is allowed by the Commissioner and the compounding amount (tax, interest and penalty involved) is also paid by you within the time specified in the Order, then the private complaint filed with the First Class Judicial Magistrate or Competent Court will be withdrawn/stand abated. (for details refer Section 138)

  • If you file the application for compounding of offence and the same is allowed by the Commissioner and the compounding amount is paid by you within the time specified in the Order, but the private complaint is not yet filed with the First Class Judicial Magistrate or Competent Court, then no further action shall be taken for prosecution in respect of same offence.

  • If the private complaint filed with the First Class Judicial Magistrate or Competent Court is set aside, then the case stands closed.

  • If you have complied with the order of the First Class Judicial Magistrate or Competent Court, then the case stands closed.
