Simple ways to file income tax return in India

Each citizen in our country gets preoccupied every year when they file income tax return. Tax Filing is not necessarily a difficult process to comprehend. It primarily involves a procedure where one needs to disclose their income and taxes paid by them to the government. Primarily, filing tax return enables us to declare our annual income, as well as keeps a record of the amount of tax money one paid. Moreover, it guarantees that all previous dues had been cleared by the taxpayer.

The Income Tax Scenario  in India

In India, two types of tax are presently executed. These are:

Direct Tax

Indirect Tax

When a tax is paid on the income absolutely to the government, then such a tax is referred as Direct Tax.

Thereafter, the generated tax money is forwarded to the government.

 Indirect taxes exist in the form of:

Service tax

Value added tax or VAT

However, after the introduction of GST, there now exists a unified tax system. GST does not demand multiple tax returns. As a result, a person engaged in more than one business is not required to file a separate return; rather a single GST return will successfully serve all the purposes.

What happens after income tax return is filed?

There is a way to verify whether the tax deducted has been credited to the tax payer’s PAN. The tax deducted by the employer will reflect in Form 16, but to make sure that all other taxes have also been credited to the PAN, the taxpayer needs to check out  Form 26AS online.
