Reasons To File Income Tax Return Before The Deadline

Why You Should File Income Tax Return Before July 31,

The deadline provided for filing the ITR for those salaried employees whose accounts are exempted from auditing is July 31, 2022. For those whose accounts require auditing, the last date is October 31, 2022. Filing ITR before the given deadline is always appreciated. Let’s talk about the benefits of doing so.

No Penalty

The ones who file ITR as per the given dates need not pay any penalty. Delay in ITR filing can also lead to interest on the tax payable under Section 234A of the Income Tax Act 1961 and a fine up to Rs.10,000 needs to be paid.

Legal Action

In case of delay in not filing the ITR, the Income Tax department might send a notice and a person can land in legal trouble. Avoid this if you don’t want to get involved in any such matter.

Get Easy Loan Approval

Income Tax Returns are a mandatory document for any formal loan approval. The copies of ITR are seen by the bank as proof of income. Individuals who don’t file ITR can face hurdles while getting any loan approval from the bank.

Carry Forward Losses

As per the IT rules, forwarding the losses to the next financial year in case of ITR filing before the due date is allowed. This allows taxpayers to reduce their tax liability of future incomes.
