The Madhya Pradesh unit of income tax department was shocked to witness a shopping spree of a woman.
The income tax department has sent a notice to a senior IAS officer’s wife over her online shopping spree worth Rs 10 lakh.
According to reports, officials claim that she had ordered products worth Rs 10 lakh in a small period of time, while those close to the IAS officer say that his wife suffers from compulsive buying disorder – a psycholo-gical disorder characterized by an obsession with shopping that causes adverse consequences.
Online shoppers tend to leave a digital trail that is available to income tax officials, who use a smart software to map an individual’s spending, said officials. The spending data can be matched with taxes paid and evaders can be caught.
The IAS officer’s wife files her income tax separately and she has not filed her reply yet.
