10 commandments of tax

Jul 3, 2017,
Many make mistakes while filing tax returns. Follow these rules so that your return is flawless.
We all believe we are paying a lot of tax. The time has come to record it as well.
By filing your tax return, you declare how much income you earned during the year, the deductions you claimed and the tax you paid. The equation is simple, yet many taxpayers mess up their tax returns – either out of greed, ignorance of rules, or just lack of time. Some mistakes are not very serious offences and the taxpayer will get away with an additional tax demand. But some errors, such as not mentioning cash deposits after demonetisation or foreign assets and income, can land the taxpayer in serious trouble. …
