Income Tax

The Income Tax Return is an annual statement of the income and tax paid on the basis of self-assessment by the taxpayers detailing the expenses and gross receipts. It is generally filed by the assessee, which is accepted by the income tax department. For error-free assessment, the tax system gets automatically processed after matching with the tax credit. The department goes through a detailed verification of all the expenses and incomes of a person as reported in the Income Tax Return. Conducting the assessment process is an art, which requires sound knowledge and experience in the field for concluding it successfully in favour of the assessee.

It is important to file the income tax returns within its due date to avail benefit available under various provisions of the income tax. The year in which the return is to be filed is generally termed as the assessment year and the period of which the tax return is filed is termed as the previous year. For instance; if the income is earned within 2018-19, then the period will be the previous year and the assessment will be 2019-20.
