  1. Varaprasad Daitha says:

    In spite of increase in basic exemption and 80C benefits up to Rs.1 lakh the budget collections are at very satisfactory levels. The Finance Ministry may consider to allow the voluntary filers might be entitled to get adjust the refund claims from of the following financial year tax deduction / advance payment of taxes. This will enable the Government to reduce the litigation of refunds and connected issues and also large amounts of interest on refunds. The tax deductors may accept the acknowledgment in support of proof of filing income tax return.
