Now, tax filing machines at Cafe Coffee Day outlets

Online tax-filing company Taxsmile.com has tied up with Cafe Coffee Day to set up its automated tax filing (ATF) machines at the chain’s outlets.

The ATF machines will help people file income tax returns at Cafe Coffee Day joints in major cities across the country. This alliance is an initiative towards rolling out 50 ATFs, Taxsmile said.

“With the recent changed mandates for all tax payers to e-file for income more than Rs 10 lakhs per annum, our ATF kiosks will lend end-to-end online support to file their tax returns in a simple do-it-yourself mode,” said Vishal Davda, Executive Director, Taxsmile.

He said it is the first Indian company with its own tax preparation and filing website and an e-return intermediary (ERI) authorised by the Income Tax Department.

It offers step-by-step guidance for tax payers to prepare and file returns.
