All About Income Tax Investigations

Intelligence Gathering, Inquiries, Surveys, Searches and Scrutiny

With regular flow of intelligence, use of information technology, new reporting mechanisms and wide-ranging statutory powers, detecting tax evasion is now far easier for the Income Tax Department. But people are generally ignorant about how income tax authorities conduct investigations, track transactions and detect concealment. Most taxpayers are also ill-informed about why, when and how searches, surveys and scrutiny are conducted for detecting tax evasion.

This book demystifies the entire gamut of income tax investigations in a simple, lucid and interesting style. It explains concepts like black money, tax evasion, money laundering, etc. and educates the public about all aspects of income tax inquiries, surveys, search and seizure operations, and scrutiny — and how best to deal with them. The numerous illustrations present the reader with a better insight into these actions.

The scope and usefulness of the book makes it a must read for all taxpayers and tax professionals, industrialists, businesspeople, traders, dealers, agents, professionals and salaried employees.


". . . an in-depth analysis of a critical subject in a simple language, making it easily comprehensible by the layman."  — SUNITA KAILA, Former Member (Investigation), CBDT, New Delhi

"Ms Vinita Chopra has done great service to the tax payers by explaining so lucidly the provisions and processes of survey and search and seizure operations by the Income Tax Department. The book will also serve as a ready reckoner to income tax professionals and officials of the Income Tax Department."  — LAKSHMI PRASAD, Former Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Delhi

"Being an insider's account, They May Catch You! demystifies income tax investigations, especially for the taxpayers. The book has immense public interest value as it powerfully drives home the point why tax evasion is neither feasible nor remunerative."  — B P GAUR, Director General of Income Tax (Investigation), Mumbai

Vinita Chopra

Vinita Chopra belongs to the 1975 batch of the Indian Revenue Service. She retired from the post of Director General of Income Tax in 2009.

During her career, Ms Chopra had the good fortune of being intensively and extensively associated with income tax investigations. As Director to Government of India in the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), she was involved in policy formation for curbing tax evasion and developing the investigation machinery of the Income Tax Department. She also attended training programs in Tax Fraud Administration and Financial Fraud Investigation in USA. This gave her a wider perspective of the issues relating to investigation in tax fraud cases.

She headed the Investigation Wing of the Income Tax Department as Director of Income Tax (Investigation), first for the state of Gujarat, and then for a part of Maharashtra. As Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, she held the sensitive post of Director General of Income Tax (Investigation) for the states of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.

They May Catch You! is the essence of the author's vast experience on the subject.
