An appeal can be filled by the tax payers who are affected because of any order or an assessment ordered by the income tax authorities. In the same way, the income tax authorities too can file an appeal against any order passed by lower income tax authorities.
The appellate tribunal is a quasi-judicial body set up by the union government to handle the appellate matter under the Income Tax Act.
