A step towards easing compliance and reducing uncertainty is that the time limit for reopening income tax assessments will be restricted to 3 years from the six years currently applicable. Only serious offences beyond a non-compliance threshold of 50 lakhs in a year will be subject to a 10-year window for reopening of assessment. Payment of advance tax to meet tax liability for dividend income can be after the declaration of dividend. Dividends to InVITs and REITs will be exempted from TDS. As an incentive for startups, tax holiday and capital gains exemption has been extended by one more year up to 31 March 2022.
