More Under Income Tax



    There are techies in the Department, probably being encouraged by software guys and tax professionals to make a common man who is not all that tech savvy to run to a tax professional to file ITR. Downloading Zip file, extracting, saving uploading may be easy for a techie – NOT ME. Even as an Honorable Supreme Court Justice mentioned it takes 3 days to a week for even him to file an ITR !!!! Jai Hind. WE MUST MOVE FORWARD WITH ALL POSSIBLEW COMPLICATIONS

      Guys ( Including Honrable FM)
      This is disgusting , why you are not able to stick in one utility for a year. . Is software development and trial more important than ease of understanding.

      Please regulate such changes and get some matured professional services .always keep in your mind , who are user.

      Sorry to say , but too childish way of managing this .
