Excise and Taxation of Haryana Govt. direct a special drive against 81 risky taxpayers
The Government of Haryana’s Excise and Taxation Department identified a list of 81 high-risk taxpayers with significant shortfalls in tax paid (25 taxpayers having GSTR 1 – GSTR 3B mismatch worth Rs.17.23 crores) and Input Tax Credit availed (56 taxpayers having GSTR 2A – GSTR 3B mismatch worth Rs.63.64 crores). The list was shared with field formations, and a push was organised to verify and investigate these high-risk taxpayers.
Upon verification, 40 of the 81 taxpayers were discovered to be non-existent or non-functional at their Principal Place of Business.
So far, a total of Rs.57.64 lakhs has been recovered from these high-risk taxpayers, with Rs.40.49 lakhs recovered in cash and Rs.17.15 lakhs recovered through Input Tax Credit. The Input Tax Credit (ITC) of these taxpayers worth Rs.3.79 crores has been frozen as a precautionary measure. An investigation of these taxpayers is currently underway.
It should be highlighted that the Haryana government has zero tolerance for false/bogus businesses, and that taxpayers who deal in fake credit would face severe consequences under the Act.
