One person having qualification of B.Com(H) practicing (filing return) income tax since 1 year. Last week he gave an advertisement in news paper of his service. He is not an advocate, just a B.Com. Some official from tax department called him and told that a tax practioner can not give news paper advertisement and such an act is punishable. Seniors please tell me if any such provision is there.

The person cannot be termed as a tax practioner either, inorder, to be an ITP he has to register with the I T Dept or he is no better than a quack. What were the contents of the advertisement which attracted the attention of the department, which has led to warning by the department.

I think to be registered as ITP one must practice tax at least for one year, then he can apply
