"Our new mobile site will make it easy for the taxpayer to file his ITR using the mobile phone," he added. This new solution from the company will offer taxpayers service to file ITR through their mobile phones from the first week of July, 2011.

TaxSpanner has developed eFile by mobile solution using open source technologies namely Linux, apache, postgres, python, django which it has used for the service from its website.

To access the service, a mobile user will have to visit TaxSpanner site on his handset from the browser present on the device. After this he will be automatically directed to "eFile by eMail" application page of the TaxSpanner mobile site.

The user is not required to be registered for this. Only he will need to fill up a form with some personal details and upload Form 16 on the same page. Thereafter, the ITR will be filled and generated automatically, the statement said. (PTI)
