First time filing income tax? Here's all you need to know about Form 16 and Form 26AS
April, 26th 2017

With the end of the financial year, the process to file tax return has been started. The salaried class people must have already started the process by downloading the necessary forms from the official income tax department website.

Amid the process, the government and Supreme Court is still battling with making Aadhaar card mandatory to file income tax return.

On March 21, the government had announced that it has made Aadhaar card mandatory to file ITR and applying for permanent account number (PAN). PAN number is mandatory to file income tax returns.

The deadline to do this is June 30, 2017. The rules also state that the name on PAN card and Aadhaar must match. But, last week the apex court questioned the Centre's move.
