What is the benefits of Income Tax Return File, Who and Why need to File Income Tax Return

Who needs to mandatory to file ITR?
As per Income tax laws;
You need to file your income tax return if your gross taxable income (without any tax saving deduction) is more than the basic tax limit applicable for you.
Gross Taxable Income is defined as
Total Income for the financial year
(Minus) Conveyance Allowance, LTA, HRA, Profession Tax, Home loan interest, etc.
But before exemptions under Section 80C to 80U etc which includes investments such as ELSS, PPF, NPS, Insurance etc
Below is the Basic Tax limit:
§                    For citizens below 60 years of age – Rs 2.5 Lakhs
§                    Between 60 and 80 years (Senior Citizens) – Rs 3 Lakhs
§                    Above 80 years (Very Senior Citizens) – Rs 5 Lakhs
Some Examples:

 1.                 If you are 58 years of age and your income is Rs 3 lakhs, you need not necessarily pay tax as you can invest Rs 50,000 in Sec 80C (such as PPF, ELSS etc) and pay 0 taxes. But still you will need to file your tax returns.

2.                 If you are 81 years of age and your income is Rs 4.5 Lakhs you need not necessarily file income tax return as the basic tax limit is Rs 5 lakhs for very senior citizens.
Other than the above you still need to file your ITR if you satisfy any of the following conditions:
1.                 You have to claim any excess tax deposited
2.                 You have losses that you want to take forward to next financial years
3.                 If you have any foreign asset or income from sources outside India
4.                 If you have income from property held by a trust
Why filing ITR is good idea?
Other than the categories of people described above who needs to mandatory to file ITR, we encourage everyone with income to file their ITR because of following reasons:
1.                 ITR is required when you want to take any loan. This serves as valid income proof especially for the self employed.
2.                 Also it’s useful document when you apply for Visa for some countries
3.                 The filing of ITR is easy, free and can be done by self in 15 – 20 minutes especially if you income sources only from salary/pension, fixed deposit interests etc.

Is e-filing ITR mandatory?

You would need to e-file your income tax return in case
1.                 You have to claim refund of excess tax paid
2.                 Your gross income is more than Rs 5 lakhs
3.                 ITR forms 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 have to e-file
However for citizens above 80 years of age, they can still file their returns in paper format if they are using ITR forms 1, 2A or 2.

Last date for Filing ITR?

The last date for filing income tax return for AY 2015-16 (FY 2014-15) is August 31, 2015. However in case you are carrying on a business and your accounts are required to be audited, the due date gets extended till September 30, 2015.

What if you miss the ITR deadline?

In case you miss the deadline for filing your ITR for AY 2015-16, you can still do it by March 31, 2016 without any penalty and up to March 31, 2017 with penalty. But in either case you loose on following benefits:
1.                 You cannot revise your returns in case you find any error on a later date
2.                 You cannot carry forward your losses
3.                 In case you had tax due, you will need to pay penalty on that – 1% for every month of delay

What’s the Penalty for non-filing ITR?

In case you do not file your income tax return for AY 2015-16 by March 31, 2016  (but should have filed as per IT laws),the assessing officer can put a fine of up to Rs 5,000 under section 271F after hearing the credits of your case.

Ideally everyone with income should file their IT return as it serves as valid proof of income. Paying taxes and filing returns are two different things and you should not default on either. So even if you paid all your taxes or have zero tax liability you must file your returns as per law.

IRCTC Updates: No ID Needed For Tatkal Bookings, IRCTC Requests to Banks For Providing OTPs

Indian Railways has announced several new updates and programs this week. Here is a quick brief:

No IDs Required For Tatkal Tickets

Indian Railways has decided to stop the practice of asking identity proofs during booking –both online and offline. As per an official release, the ID proof would only be required to show during the journey.

As of now, passengers are mandated to provide booking clerk an attested copy of their identity proof while booking from counter, and mention the ID number in online bookings.
Stopping of this step will certainly benefit the passenger during tatkal bookings, as much time is lost in arranging such photocopies and providing them to the booking clerk.

IRCTC Requests Banks For Providing OTPS

As of now, IRCTC has formally partnered with 50 banks for providing payment options during an online booking. However, only 24 banks have One Time Password (OTP) arrangement, which creates fraud possibilities and obstruct smooth flow for the Railways.

IRCTC has formally requested all the remaining banks to initiate OTP procedure so that customers don’t face any hassle while booking tickets. In fact, these 26 banks without OTP system has been given a deadline of August 15th to implement the same.

IRCTC GM (software) M Srinivas said, “We need to implement OTP system by all the banks with a view to checking fraudulent transactions on the IRCTC website. Railway crime branch has also put the IRCTC on alert about fraudulent transactions,”

Out of these 50 banks, 28 banks provide net banking, six offer payment gateways, 10 provide debit card option, 4 offer cash cards while 1 each is EMI-based and IRCTC prepaid card system.

All about Income Tax Salary Certificate Form 16 for Salaried persons for F.Y.2014-15 with Automatic Form 16 for F.Y.2014-15

 What is Form 16:

 If you are salaried employee in an organization, then you will get the salary after deducting tax by the employer. Therefore Form 16 is a certificate issued to you by your employer stating the Personal details of the Employee including Name, Permanent Account Number (PAN) etc , details of the salary you have earned, Perquisites that has been offered, allowances given , details of Chapter VIA deductions and the tax deducted on your salary by your Employer and paid to the government. It also has Employer details like Name, permanent account number PAN, TAN etc.

This is the basic document which is required by the employee to file income tax returns because Form-16 contains income chargeable under the head “Salaries” which is the taxable salary. The same needs to be indicated in Income Tax Returns.

Form 16 has 2 parts – Part A and Part B.
Part A has TAN (tax deduction & collection account number) of the employer & PAN (permanent account number) details of both the employer and employee. The name and address of employer and employee is also mentioned. It also mentions the assessment year and provide summary of tax deducted from your income and deposited to the government as per the quarterly TDS return filed by the employer. A monthly detail of TDS deducted and deposited is also certified.

Part B is an important part of your Form 16 since it has a consolidated detail of salary paid to you during the year. The breakup of your salary as well as detail of deduction claimed by you under section 80 of the income tax act is mentioned. Deductions under Chapter VIA include details of amounts claimed under Section 80C for EPF, PPF, NSC, life insurance premium or Section 80D for health insurance, Section 80G for donations made are all mentioned here. It also shows your total taxable income and tax deducted on such income.

Necessity of Form 16 In Filing Income Tax Return: Form 16 is necessary to file an income tax return in India because Firstly, Form 16 acts as a checker for you to verify whether your employer has deposited the whole amount of TDS that he may have deducted from your salary. Secondly, it will enable you to file Income tax return disclosing the correct taxable salary income and various deductions from your salary like EPF, Profession tax and TDS.

Download Amended Format of Form 16 Part A&B for the Financial Year 2014-15 ( This Excel based Software can prepare at a time 50 employees Form 16 Part A & B for F.Y.2014-15)

Employer Obligation to provide Form 16 :- Further, it is the obligation of the employer to provide a Form 16 to all employees by 31 May of the assessment year (AY), if TDS has been deducted , In case no TDS has been deducted by the employer they may not issue you a Form 16.The employer can be liable to pay a penalty of Rs. 100 for each day by which he delays issuance of this certificate, also if you have been employed under more than one employer during the year, each of your employers will provide you a Form 16.

Filing of Income Tax Return without Form16:- Even if Form 16 has not been issued you cannot escape from the liability to file Income Tax Return , therefore to file income tax return without Form 16 you need to collect your monthly salary slip and compute total salary for the year.
Note: The amount credited in your bank statement is after deducting the tax at source but for reporting in ITR you need to calculate Gross Salary.

An employee receives many types of allowances in the form of salary while some allowances such as conveyance allowance, medical allowance, HRA, etc. are exempt from income tax while dearness allowance is completely taxable. Hence, the IT Department allows you to deduct the exempt allowances from salary to arrive at the figure of taxable salary.

Since you have not received form 16 from your employer, you must verify Form 26AS to know about the TAN and TDS deducted by your Employer

If you have other income as well apart from salary then sum up all the income like Income from renting of House property , capital gains from sale of assets , income from other sources like interest on bank deposits, RDs, FDs etc.

Deduct tax benefit from the above computed income like investments made under NSC, LIC, tuition fees, PPF, and repayment of principal of housing loan under section 80C. Similarly, donations made to charitable institutions can be claimed under section 80G, and payment made towards premium of medical insurance policy can be claimed in section 80D.

After summing up all income and deducting the tax benefits , the resultant computation will be taxable income. Now, calculate income tax on this taxable income using the IT slab rates for financial year 2014-15.

Now you are all set for filing tax return. You can now visit the online tax filing site to file your INCOME TAX RETURN.
