The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has launched a dedicated e-portal to receive and process complaints on tax evasion, foreign undisclosed assets and benami properties.

The public can file a tax evasion petition through a link on the e-filing website of the income tax department. 

Upon successful filing of the complaint, the income tax department will allot a unique number to each complaint and the complainant would be able to view the status of the complaint on the Department’s website.
