Let’s discuss the High-value transactions which are tracked by the income tax department. It is mandatory to report all high-value transactions in the prescribed format by the banks and all other financial institutions. The prescribed format is called as a Form 61A or Annual Information Return (AIR). Any mismatch found in Income reported in ITR vs investment/expenditure may lead to the Income tax notice. So, you need to be very careful while doing financial transactions.
