  1. Why should we put Assessment Year as 2012-13 when we are paying tax for the financial year as 2011-12.

    1. Tax of financial year is assessed in next financing year which is called assessment year .This is rule and it is meant to be followed no choice to you.

  2. Hi,Since I have other source of income also(interest on fd) apart from salary. Bank has already deducted tax, but when I calculated the tax, there is a difference between what (bank+company) has already deposited and actual tax to be paid. I Know before filing the return I have to pay that balance tax using challan 280. But during payment, I am not sure which option should I choose out of 8 that you have mentioned above. Please reply

    1. First you should assess whether any interest is due on late payment of tax through filing the details in ITR form. If interest is nil then you have to fill full pending amount in row -1 i.e tax ,however if interest is due then you should bifurcate amount in tds and interest row respectively.

  3. Hi..I need to pay self assessment tax using challan 280.I have to pay tax for both (salary+bank) interest since the cumulative TDS deducted by both are less than that reflected while filing online. I have zero under the interest 234A/B/C section. Please let me know which all fields are necessary out of the 7 sections for AY2013-2014.

    1. Select code 21 ,code 300, ay 2013-14, complete amount in Tax column at bank site as per sr number 10 above

  4. i need to pay self assesment tax ..i wish to do it online. my present address is different form that of pan address.In online which address i hv to type ...rply me

    1. address is not important , you can fill present address

  5. Sir,
    I submitted the returns before paying the tax online. How can I rectify this mistake? Can I pay the tax online irrespective of this and while sending the hard copy, mentioning the CIN is enough? Please help.

    1. If you have filed the return online than your return will be treated defective and 15 days time will be allowaed to you make necessary correction .

      The second option is to revise your return after deposit of balance tax amount

    2. What are the steps to do the second option? Please suggest.

    3. Deposit you pending tax as shown above (change ay to 2013-14)
      fill tax details of new challan in revised return
      select revised return option in return and select section 139(5) and fill itr-V number of earlier return uploaded .

      Your revised return ready , upload it ,generate new itr-V and send to cpc

  6. i had paid advance tax at night by chalan 280. deduction well be done after opening of bank next day . how i will get receipt of payment?

    1. if you are paying tax for ay 13-14 then self assessment code should be selected not advance tax ,if you have selected advance tax then you have selected ay 14-15 please check challan

  7. Hi Experts,

    I have received 2 lac rupees as a accidental death claim (from High court decision and the amount is paid by insurance company). As my advocate didn't have my PAN number so 10% tax of the amount 2 lac(i.e.20,000) had already been deducted and I had received 1.8 lac rupees. When I had collected the form 16-A from the insurance company, it doesn't have PAN number mentioned and nature of payment mentioned in form 16-a was "T.P. 9 MTEREST" and because of that the same amount didn't reflect in my form 26AS. Now I have requested to revise the return so that the deducted tax can be reflected in form 26 AS and I can claim for the tax deducted.

    Now I have 2 queries here
    1) is the amount received as a accidental death claim is tax free ?? or we have to pay tax for the same.

    2) The tax which was deducted and deposited by insurance company will fall under advance tax/ self assessment category or Income other than salary.

    Please help .

    Thanks in advance !!

    1. 1)Personal accidental death claim is not taxable in hand of nominee.
      2) Yes, it will treated as advance tax and if you have already deposited your tax then you can claim refund

    2. hello sir
      I have depositted my self assed tax wrongly mentioning the amount in detail column "OTHERS' since last 3 yrs and getting demand of tax due of same amount which I have depositd.
      Please help me what should I do
      I also sent rectification request but of no use
      It is only after reading your topic I could under stand that it should have mentioned in column "TAX"

    3. First you should check your form 26AS ,if credit has been shown in the form 26AS then problem /reason of demand is not depositing the tax in "other " column.

      however if amount is not shown in form 26As then you should contact your assessing officer to make necessary correction

  8. Hi experts
    I do have some interest accrued in my SB account which is over 10 K (say 30 K). I assume the self-assessment tax needs to be paid for actual interest – 10 K (80TTA) = 20 K. However I have a small doubt on challan 280

    How do I calculate basic tax, education cess and interests (234 a/b/c)? Does the amount to be paid (in ITR form) include all 3 components, or is it only the basic tax

    Please advise


    1. First you should calculate interest under section 234 B C as per your actual figures by putting the figures in the Income tax return utility without the self assessemnt tax .after calculation of the same you may deposit the self assessment tax .

      As per present practice you may deposit balance tax and other components if any in basic tax column and department will adjust the same at his side in different head if required .

    2. Thanks for your quick response. Couple of followup questions
      1) Does D17 in ITR 1 include the interest 234 a/b/c?
      2) I believe education cess of 3% will be applied on D17


    3. yes, D17 includes everything ,education cess already included in d17

      check d5 ,d9,d10,d11

    4. Thanks for your response. so in challan 280
      1) Basic tax amount = D17 - interest (D9, 10, 11)
      2) Education cess can be left blank (since it is already included in D17)
      3) Interest = D9+10+11

      Sorry for asking too many questions, but I am trying to get acquainted to fill up challan 280.


    5. yes you are correct ......or other option is deposit full amount in basic tax ,Leave the bifurcation work for department.

    6. Thanks Raja.
