159th Income Tax Day today

It was on 24th July, 1860 that Income Tax was introduced for the first time in India by Sir James Wilson to compensate for the losses incurred by the British regime during the first war of independence against British Rule.

In a release, the Finance Ministry said, the week preceding the Aaykar Diwas has been marked by various activities undertaken by the regional offices of the department across the country.

Several outreach programmes have been organized across the country to promote payment of taxes as a value norm and for sensitizing potential tax payers that payment of taxes was an ethical duty of all citizens.
