GST Commissioner  appeals to taxpayers

DIMAPUR, JUNE 30 (MExN): The GST Commissioner, Dimapur today informed that while there are approximately 10,000 registered taxpayers (both Centre and State jurisdiction combined) in the state of Nagaland, it has been observed in recent months that only 60% to 70% among these taxpayers are filing GST returns. 

“Non-filing of GST Returns leads to penalty/fine payments and a prolonged period of non filing of GST Returns could even result in cancellation of a GST Registration number,” informed a press release from the GST Commissioner.  In this context, as a major move towards GST taxpayers’ facilitation, the Government has decided to provide the facility of SMS filing of NIL statement of FORM GSTR-1 and GSTR-3B. 

At present, taxpayers have to log into their account on the common GST portal and then file their returns every month or each quarter. This facility through SMS from registered mobiles would substantially improve ease of GST compliance for over 12 lakh taxpayers across the country. 

On GST Day, the Commissioner appealed taxpayers of Nagaland to take advantage of these new measures and help improve compliance in filing of their GST returns.

“It has now been three years since the biggest tax reform in the indirect taxes of India was rolled out. The Goods and Services Tax is the most transformational tax reform initiated by the Government of India. It has converted India into an integrated market in the effort to achieve ‘One Nation, One Tax, One Market,’” the Commissioner stated.
