Declaration of Tax Saving Investments
While filing ITR, you will have to give information about your investments for deductions and exemptions. At the same time, for this, first you find out how much more you will have to invest to get exemption under section 80C. This will be in addition to EPF (employees’ provident fund), tuition fee of the child, life insurance premium, etc.
Late filing of ITR
It is advisable to file ITR on time, but if for some reason you are unable to do so, you can file a late return. If the taxable income is more than Rs 5 lakh, then a penalty of Rs 10 thousand will have to be paid, while if it is up to Rs 5 lakh, then a penalty of Rs 1 thousand will be imposed.
Income declaration on new job
If you have changed jobs in the business year, then do your income declaration. You will have to declare the old income with the new employer. If you do not do this then your employer can add tax liability again for deduction after accounting.
