July, 18th 2018

Make sure that you do not commit the mistake of ignoring the rules of taxation.

As tax filing deadline inches closer, you may be rushing to collate all your documents to file your returns. But sometimes despite being very careful, we can commit mistakes that can land us in trouble with the tax department.

Amarpal Chadha, Tax Partner & India Mobility Leader, EY India said that it is essential to re-check your ITR form before submission to avoid any incorrect reporting or making your return defective. "One could do a quick check on a few points like - Have you used the right ITR form, Have you captured all sources of income, for example – did you make a profit on bitcoins, have you done a comparison with your last year return, have you looked at your Form 26AS or have you made necessary disclosure of assets, as applicable," he added further.

It is thus, important to keep in mind the points mentioned to avoid committing mistakes while filing ITR. Adhil Shetty, CEO, Bankbazaar told Moneycontrol that assesse should avoid these seven mistakes while filing their income tax returns.
