CBIC has in their Press release mentioned that there are unconfirmed reports in media that GST officers are using unauthorised communication means such as phone calls, Whatsapp and messages asking taxpayers to discharge “maximum tax liability” in “cash” in order to ensure targets for revenue collection from GST for the financial year are met.
It is to clarify that neither the Government nor the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) have issued any such instructions to their field formations.
As such, taxpayers are free to utilise the Input tax credit available in their credit ledger, as permissible in law, to discharge their GST dues for the month of March, 2021 – the last month of this financial year.
