What is Income Tax Return Filing?

Individuals and businesses are liable to pay taxes on their income. Income tax, levied and collected by the Central Government, is imposed on the income earned by individuals. This tax obligation must be fulfilled within the same financial year in which the income is accrued, often in the form of advance tax payments. However, the assessment of income and calculation of tax liability occur in the Assessment Year. This process is facilitated through the submission of an Income Tax Return, which details the taxpayer’s income, deductions, and tax liability. The filing requirements, including the form and deadline, vary for different taxpayers based on specific criteria.c Recent modifications to Income Tax Return forms aim to simplify the user experience. However, these changes highlight the taxpayer’s responsibility to substantiate claims for expenses, exemptions, and deductions accurately. Given the complexity of tax laws and regulations, seeking assistance from experienced professionals is advisable to ensure the correct filing of your return.
