    • File your Income Tax Returns by 31 July 2018 to avoid paying fines

      The last date for the filing of income tax returns (ITR) for the assessment year 2018-19 is 31 July 2018. Filing of Income Tax Returns (ITR) is a mandatory activity on the part of the taxpayers. With the last date approaching, taxpayers now have less than 2 weeks to collect all the relevant documents and financial detail proof to file their returns. One of the most important aspects of ITR filing is to file it on time. If an individual fails to file the income tax returns on time, he/she might have to pay a penalty amounting to as high as Rs.10,000 in addition to the interest. The Income Tax Department (ITD) gives multiple reminders to the taxpayers asking them to file their returns. ITR filing helps in validating the creditworthiness of the taxpayer and thus, makes it possible for the taxpayers to access financial benefits such as credit cards, loans, and so on.

      Not filing the returns before the deadline might be costly for the taxpayers. Although the taxpayers are provided with the option to file their Income Tax Returns (ITR) after the deadline and by the end of the fiscal year, they might have to end up paying a hefty penalty of as much as Rs.10,000. This penalty is paid in addition to the interest. If a taxpayer misses the 31st July deadline for filing, the ITR for the Financial Year 2017-18 can be filed till 31 March 2019. However, he/she will have to pay a penalty of Rs.5,000 if the filing is done after the 31 July 2018 deadline but before 31 December 2018. If it is delayed further the penalty will rise up to be around Rs.10,000. However, if the salary of the taxpayer is within the mark of Rs.5 lakh the late filing fine will not exceed Rs.5 lakh.
