Tax wrong computation sheet

Before the Hon’ble High Court, the Petitioner submitted that in the Assessment Order, the returned income of the assessee was accepted as assessed income, and as per the Assessment Order passed under section 143(3) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (the Act), the tax liability was NIL, however, as computation sheet was not rectified the recovery had been issued.
