What is a tax refund?
Income tax payer’s income tax is deducted in advance in a financial year based on his estimated investment documents. But when he submits the final papers by the end of the financial year, if he gets it on account that his tax has been cut more and he has to withdraw the money from the Income Tax Department, he will file ITR for it for refund.
