1. The Department has modified the return preparation software to include automatic calculation of tax and interest and this is available for download free of cost.
2. New facility added in “My Account” allows registered E-filers to View the Tax Credit Statement (Form 26AS) to verify if the tax payments made by you or TDS deducted from salary or interest etc are correctly reported to the Department. This is crucial to ensure that you receive complete and accurate tax credit for tax payments and TDS reported by you in the I-T return. Please immediately contact the bank or deductor in case of any discrepancy or missing entries.
3. With these new features return preparation should be a breeze this year even for first timers!
