GST: Commercial Taxes dept review finds 3K non-existent taxpayers


A total of 3,147 newly-registered taxpayers under the Tamil Nadu GST Act, 2017, were found to be non-existent at the declared business premises by Commercial Taxes Department officials. Of these, 1,972 registrations have been cancelled and further action is being taken for the remaining cases. This exercise is carried out every month, according to a policy note tabled at the Assembly.

Meanwhile, verification of e-Way bill data and detailed scrutiny of returns filed by taxpayers are being carried out to curb ‘bill trading’ activities. During the year 2021-22, a total of 1,044 bill traders had been identified and action under the TNGST Act is being taken.

Meanwhile, the department will utilise the expertise of the National Informatics Centre, Bangalore — which carried out the integration of FASTag with the e-Way bill system — to curb ‘bill trading’. Suspected ‘bill traders’ will be identified by using data analytics reports of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) live data, which is available in the e-Way bill portal.

These bill traders generate e-Way bills for huge outward supplies without any actual inward supplies, the department said. In order to expand the scope of checking the movement of goods vehicles and ensure tax compliance, the total number of roving squads has been increased from 53 to 100.
