Income tax payment becomes a tedious task, especially if you are paying late at the end of a financial year with the due date just round the corner. So, why not consider advance tax payment? Read on to know more
When it comes to tax, it is always better to pay off the dues in advance as compared to waiting for the last moment to make the payment. As such, income tax calculation and payment is a tiring task and thus the sooner you make the payment, the better it is.
As the name suggests, advance tax payment means payment of income tax in advance. Advance tax payment is also known as ‘pay as you earn’ and it is not a very complicated process. Let us understand it in detail.
As discussed above, advance tax payment means paying your annual income tax well in advance for the entire income earned in a financial year. In normal circumstances this is the tax that is paid after earning a certain income. However, in case of advance tax payment and as per the rules of advance tax, the person paying the tax in advance has to make an estimation of the income for the current financial year. As per that estimation, the tax is paid in advance at particular time durations. But you must note that advance tax payment is possible only if the tax liability of the taxpayer is more than INR 10,000 in a financial year. Moreover, the advance tax should be paid within the fiscal year in which you are likely to receive the income.
Advance tax is applicable in cases when the income is earned from varied sources such as investments, rents, lottery, business etc., and not just from the salary of a person. It is possible to make the advance tax payment online or through some specific banks.
Anyone who has tax liability of INR 10,000 and beyond can pay advance tax. Thus, those with tax liability below 10,000 in a fiscal year are not likely to consider advance tax payments. Moreover, if a taxpayer understands their tax liability well, they would not require to pay more than the least amount as advance tax.
