Get your Income Tax Return Filled by 31 July

How to file Income Tax Return?

This was the most common question in the comments section of my post on the e-Filing Income Tax Procedure of AY 2020-21. In spite of the easy ITR form and quick e-filing option, we can make mistakes. One may miss adding tax-saving deductions in the ITR form. We may miss account capital loss to carry forward. We may also fill a gross salary in place of taxable income. We may also fill the home loan interest in positive value.

RJA is here to help you to avoid all these errors and let all your Tax related worries simply fly.

There are two types of tax levy one is direct tax second one is an indirect tax. Income tax is a direct tax that is directly attributable to the income of the assessee.

Income which is generated from the various head of income viz. Salary, House Property, Business, Capital Gain, and Income from other sources.

The assessee has to pay Income tax if his total Income after allowing Chapter VI-A Deduction is more than the taxable income limit.

Income Tax Forms for E-filling and Due Dates of Income Tax for AY 2020-21.

Is the due date even the last date of Income Tax Return filing?

People usually believe that the due date is also the last date after which you cannot apply for your ITR, which is not right. There are two dates that are applicable to Income Tax Return filing. One is the due date, the other is the last date. If you do not apply your ITR by the due date, you can always file it by the last date. The deadline for submission of the ITR for the 2020-2021 assessment year was 31 July 2020 and is extended to 31 December 2020. The last day, however, is 31 March 2021. However, if you apply for your ITR after the due date, a few consequences will follow.

What happened if you cannot able to file on the due date?

In the event that you fail to file your present Income tax return by 31 December 2020, you may still do so by 31 March 2021, but you may forfeit the right to carry forward any damages that may be offset against the income of following years. So, in the event that you have a loss under the head company profits or capital gains or a loss above 2 lakh rupees under the head household property during the current year and that you are otherwise entitled to carry forward for set-off in succeeding years, you would not be able to do so if you meet the deadline of 31 December 2020.

In the event that the taxes charged by you or on your behalf are higher than your tax obligation and so you are entitled to a full refund of the additional taxes paid, you would not be eligible to claim any interest in respect of the additional taxes paid for the time of delay due to you. In the event that taxes collected on your behalf are smaller than your total tax liability, in addition to interest on such a discrepancy, You will still have to compensate interest for the duration of delay in filing your ITR even though you have already paid the deficiency after 31 March 2020.

What happens if you don’t file your ITR till the last date?

If the last date of filing of the ITR for the AY 2020-2021 is increased throughout 31 March 2021 and in the event that you failed to file it until 31 March 2021, the Tax Department will impose a minimum penalty equal to 50% of the tax that would have been avoided by you in addition to the income tax and interest liability until the date on which you actually filed your Income-tax Return in the response of Notices from the Income-tax department.

Just a few people know that the government has the power to sue you and put you behind bars if you don’t file your ITR. The New income tax Regulation allows for a minimum term of three years in prison and a maximum of seven years in prison. It is not that the department may initiate litigation against you in any case of failure to file an ITR. The tax department may begin prosecution only if the amount of tax sought to be prevented exceeds INR 10,000.

You can made-up your mind to submit Your Income tax return before 31st Dec 2020.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT BILL FOR GST

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT BILL FOR GOODS AND SERVICES TAX (GST)

www.carajput.com; GST

www.carajput.com; GST

On Tuesday, the State Finance Ministers panel failed in reaching into a consent which would enable the government to have Constitutional Amendment Bill for GST (Goods and Services Tax) passed in the house of RajyaSabha.

The vital RNR (Revenue Neutral Rate) of taxation and also the capping of the rate of GST in the bill could not be accepted by many states when the State Finance Ministers Empowered committee had a meeting. About 15 to 15.5 percentage of RNR and about 17 to 18 percentage of standard rate of GST were suggested by the committee which was headed by Arvind Subramanian who is the Chief Economic Advisor.

According to what Thomas Isaac, Finance minister of Kerala, told the press after the meeting happened, every state had an opinion that the rates of tax proposed by Arvind Subramanian were not agreeable. However, they did not voice together what the rate actually should be. It could be 18% or more than that. This was the consensus all had come to.

Isaac also went on to tell that the rates must not have an adverse effect on the citizens and should also be beneficial to the state’s revenue. All of them agreed upon dropping the idea of RNR rate. He said that they would make sure of a rate and certain structure that would decrease the possible burden of tax on the citizens and also ensured that the decided rate and the structure would secure the revenues that exist in the states as well as the unions.

AmitMitra, Finance Minister of West Bengal and also the committee chairman told that as far as the rates were concerned, it was vital that certain wording be powered that would mean that the tax incidence on the common citizens should be considerably reduced. He also said that this must simultaneously secure the level of revenue trends that exist in states as well as the unions.

On the aspect of capping the rate of GST, which is a prime demand from the party of Congress, Mitra told that everybody agreed upon keeping the rate of GST out of the bill.

Mitra went on to say that no rates of tax are proposed in our constitution. It would be discussed and everybody reached a conclusion that Union Finance minister would talk to other existing parties. He would let them know that it cannot come under a constitutional amendment bill but in the act of GST or GST bill.

States ruled by Congress, on the contrary, did not flinch from their stand of capping the rate of GST in the constitutional amendment bill. HC Mahadevappa, a Karnataka Minister, told that the taxation of GST must be particularly brought in the bill so that the taxpayers know what the rates are going to be. All the states, however, came to a conclusion in the meeting on various other issues of mechanism of dispute resolution and dual control.

Mitra said that there often was a persisting issue about the dual control. The consensual conclusion of the finance ministers of the states was that about 1.5 crore rupees or less would be under the control of the state and this was told to the union finance minister. This implies that states would be the sole entities which would take care of small businesses that happen in the states. If the business is over 1.5 crore, a free methodology which is very consistent as been planned for both state and Centre to work in unison hand in hand pertaining to the generation of revenue.

The states also consented on the resolution of disputes to be carried out by the council of GST, contrary to the demand by Congress for a mechanism that works independently.

On the matter of compensation for the states, Mitra told that he was very happy to announce that a wording was worked out that would assure a compensation for five years. However he also told that he would not get into the details of it and could only pass the spirit of it saying that all the states were satisfies with the five year compensation guarantee if there occurs a loss in revenue. It is indeed a great development as an appropriate wording has been clearly defined.

According to Mitra, the states have also consented on removing the One percent extra levy that is to be levied during trade of goods between states that was proposed for constitutional amendment, so that it helps manufacturing states.

The GST bill for constitutional amendment is in the pipeline, waiting to be passed in the Upper house of Parliament as the government does not hold majority there. This bill proposal is probably going to be tabled during the monsoon session which is ongoing. After that, it must be consented by half of all the states.

In the meeting that happened on Tuesday, ArunJaitley, our Union Finance Minister, has supposedly appealed to finance ministers of all the states to make sure of the passage of the bill of GST in Rajyasabha, according to an official who was present in the meeting. He also said that Jaitley ensured states of taking care of all their concerns once the bill is passed.

Deemed to be the biggest reform of indirect tax in the country, the GST would subsume almost all of the state and central levies that include service tax, central sales tax, value added tax and also the excise duty. It would also add about two percent points to the gross domestic product of India

The Constitutional Bill will include that dispute resolution will be handled by the GST council.

The Cabinet also dropped a 1 per cent manufacturing tax.

The GST was supposed to be implemented from April 1, 2016 but strong opposition from Congress led to the delay.

Tax challenges faced by International Community

In the ever growing digital world it is possible to be heavily involved in the economic life of another country without having a fixed place of business therein which results in base erosion. Base erosion happens when a deductible payment is made for the purpose of business and claimed as business expense but the income arising from such payments is not taxable because of the limitations of existing international taxation rules. For example, deduction claimed by an Indian resident for incurring online advertisement expenses, however, income earned by the non-resident [not having a Permanent Establishment (‘PE’) in India] from rendering such online advertisement services not offered to tax in India in the absence of such non-resident’s PE in India.
