PENALTY ON LATE FILING OF INCOME TAX RETURN AY 2012-13


on Monday, July 30, 2012

Now A days all tax consultant ,business man,specially persons who have Earned salary income ,are in rush so that they can file their income tax return by due date i.e 31st July 2012 .we are also one of them.


Due date of filing of income tax return for Assessment Year 2012-13 Financial year 2011-12 is as under(read link for more details)
  1. In case of person who are not liable to get their accounts audited is 31.07.2012(extended to 31.08.2012 now )
  2. In case of person who's accounts are liable to be audited under any law is 30.09.2012 and partner of such firms and all companies.
In case of due date  31.07.2012(extended to 31.08.2012 now )  person earning income from following heads is covered.

  1. salary ,pension, 
  2. Income from other source like interest income ,
  3. Income from capital gain , 
  4. Income from house property and 
  5. Income from person owning small business and not liable to get their accounts audited are covered.
In brief all person other than those for which accounts are required to be audited is liable to file return on or before  31.07.2012(extended to 31.08.2012 now )  for Ay 2012-13

So in nutshell every body is trying to meet the deadline ie  31.07.2012(extended to 31.08.2012 now ) ,I and you are also doing efforts in this direction ,but do you know

what is the penalty if some one failed to filed his return by due date.................i.e 31.07.2012 (extended to 31.08.2012 now )

any guesses..........

no guess ,I will tell you ,In fact there is no penalty as such for this fault ,absolutely no penalty ,do you believe ,I have said that there is no penalty on late filing of return as such.But this is the fact .Specific penalty for late filing of return is prescribed u/s 271F which is briefed here under

If a person who is required to furnish a return of his income, as required under sub-section (1) of section 139 or by the provisos to that sub-section, fails to furnish such return before the end of the relevant assessment year, the Assessing Officer may direct that such person shall pay, by way of penalty, a sum of five thousand rupees


so this section says end of relevant assessment year ,as for previous year 2011-12, assessment year is 2012-13 and its end on 31.03.2013 ,means there is no liability for late filing of income tax return up to 31.03.2013 and after that assessing officer can impose a penalty of 5000,and that is also his(AO) power which he may or may not exercise after giving due hearing to the assessee.

Now you would like to know why people are so much worried about the due date ,the reason is that as due date has been linked with various other section of the income tax act ,so it is significant in that manner .

so I have listed few impacts of late filing of the Income tax return and issues related to due date of income tax.



Impact of late filing of Income tax return and issue related to due date(The List is not exhaustive/complete)
  1. Interest u/s 234A:If there is tax due after deducting advance tax ,TDS and self assessment tax than interest will be applicable @1% per month and part thereof up to the date of filing of the return besides interest applicable u/s 234B or 234C.Means this interest is applicable only if there is any tax payable in your return .(INTEREST calculator 234BC online is available here)
  2. Loss of Interest on refund:You may loose interest on refund u/s 244A as delay in filing is attributable to assessee for the period by which you have filed late return.
  3. Audit Report:Person who are liable to get their accounts audited should get the audit report on or before the due date of filing return i.e 30.09.2012.Audit repot is only to be prepared and not to be filed any where.In simple word or boldly we can say that if audit report has been signed before 30.09.2011 that is enough,you can file return late and report particulars will be filled when ever you filed your income tax return.This is as income tax circular no 5/2007 point no 6 (read full circular)
  4. Revised return :Late /belated return can not be revised .This is major draw back .if you failed to file return in time then you can revise your income tax return. Though you may apply revision u/s154 which is lenghty process  
  5. Some of deduction under subsection 80 are not available for late return.
  6. Due date of income tax return is related to TDS deposite and disallowance u/s 40a(ia).
  7. Due date of Income Tax return is related to tax saving u/s 54,54B,54F and some other issues in capital gain saving account deposit scheme.
  8. Not able to carry forward the losses under various heads:you are not able to carry forward following type of losses if file return after due date
  • Speculation loss
  • business loss excluding loss due to unabsorbed depreciation and capital exp on scientific research
  • short term capital loss
  • long term capital loss
  • loss due to owning and maint. of horse races
However there is no impact on following type of losses even if return is furnished after the due date
  • loss from house property
  • business loss on account of unabsorbed depreciation and capital expenditure on scientific research.
(though delay can be condoned as per circular 8/2001 DT 16.5.2001 on fulfilling of certain condition)

so if you are falls under the ambit of the above points then you should furnish your return up to  31.07.2012(extended to 31.08.2012 now )  or 30.09.2012 as the case may be without any penalty.

Person who can afford to file late return 

If you have
  • already deposited due tax or due taxes has been deducted by your employer and nothing is due or
  • you are not claiming a Major amount as refund or
  • you have no losses to be carried forward
then you can fill return up to the end of the assessment year ie 31.03.2013 without any penalty.


Person who should file return on time.

If you have
  • balance tax to be deposited or short fall of tax or
  • huge amount of refund due to you or
  • you have losses to be carried forwarded as explained above
then rush to the department asap so that return can be filled on time.

NOTE:Friends the all things as explained above is to not encourage people to file voluntarily late return but only to inform taxpayers their liability so that they can take informed decision.

  4. if an individual having lower income than basic exempted slab and files return after expirty of the relevant assessment year, then also penalty is imposable u/s. 271F ???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As per section 271F penalty can be imposed if return is required to be filed u/s 139.

      If gross total income is less than exemption limit then required is not required to be filed u/s 139,

      so section 271F does not applicable in such cases.

      in brief ,271F not applicable if gross total income is less than exemption limit

      Gross total income means income before deduction under chapter VI A like saving (section 80C to 80U)

  12. I have form 16 from my company but they have not reduced the HRA benefit from the gross salary. Hence, they have deducted more tax than what I should be paying. Now only 2-3 days are left. Hence, what should I do in case I do not get the revised Form 16 from my company immediately?? Should I file it with what info I have in my Form 16 and later on file for amendment (for getting refund), or should I myself calculate the exemption of HRA and file the reduced amount of gross salary and hence ask for refund now only??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No need to request your company , you can claim hra benefit at the time of filing of return . Fill salary as per form 16 minus hra exempted =balace salary in sr number one in ITR-1 .

      this can be done as per rule . revision of form 16 is not required.

  16. I could not file ITR for F.Y. 2010-11 (A.Y 2011-12) though all the taxes were deducted by emyloyer so no due tax and no refunds as per form 16. Now I want to file this ITR (before filing ITR for current F.Y).

    1. Please let me know how much penalty I am liable for and through which online challan I can pay it.

    2. I believe since I have no due taxes so 234 a,b, c not applicable but only rs. 5000 penalty under section 231 f. If yes, then should I just file ITR without paying it now and wait for i.tax officer reply and pay it when I get some notice from i.tax. or should I pay now before filing it. Please suggest.

    I'll appreciate your prompt reply.

    2. Thanks for your prompt reply. One more question related to filing this year return, I am currently in US and also paying taxes in us. For fin. yr 2011-12, half of the year I was in US and half in India from the same employer. Though I'll file return in US for the part I was in US (I am not NRI, just here for short duration) but what about ITR in India.
      1. Is it ok that I file ITR1 on the basis of form 16 i got from employer without mentioning my US account in which US salary gets deposited ?

      2. Once I file ITR online, I'll have to post signed ITR to bangalore, is there any other way as I am in US currently ?

      Delete
    3. As you are not NRI ,you have to deposit tax on your all income from any source from any country including us income as stated by you . However India and US have a double taxation treaty and you should take the benefit of this treaty .In India i think it is covered under section 90 of the income tax act .But I think you need a tax consultant ...

  21. My employer is giving 15000 p.a as medical allowance which can be reimbursed by submitting medical bills. But they gave last date to submit them in the month of January, 2012, which I could not submit. So they considered this amount as taxable and same as reflected in my form 16.( this amount got included in my gross salary). Now I have the bills (billed in the month of feb-12), can I deduct this amount from gross salary and file the return? . If yes, to whom I need to submit them ?

  22. My company gave only part-a of form 16 which shows only TDS details and they did not provide Part-B (which shows my total income details less deductions like interest on educational loan,LIC etc.). When I ask them for these details they told me to use my payslips & deduction details for total income. But I lost some of my payslips in the FY 2011-12. Can I use my Form 26AS to get my total income(I'll deduct my investments & HRS from it)?. I don't have have any other income except from my employer.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In form 26AS figure are not same as taxable salary .Compare figure for month where salary slips are available with form 26As income. You will find difference.

      so take salary as per salary slip as well as some estimation on the basis of 26AS and calculate your salary and file your return

      Further it is mandatory to provide part B also . So write your you office to provide part B also other wise send complaint to income tax department.

      Moreover you can collect income detail from office under RTI act also.

      Delete
  23. Thanks Raja Babu. Regarding Part-B of Form-16, I checked with my employer already and they said it is not mandatory and government website also stopped giving Part-b details. I checked the same at the incometax website by giving my form-16 certificate number and it gave me only part-a details. Hence I end up with compiling total income by the help of payslips and form 26 AS.

    Could you please provide the more details on this line
    "Moreover you can collect income detail from office under RTI act also."
    from which office should i get it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Part B is Mandatory .Form 16 generated by TIN-NSDL is not mandatory and it is not complete also. It is only generated to match the tax with form 26AS. read this notification

      http://taxclubindia.com/simple/tds%20rules%202010-11.pdf

      No where in the instruction it is mentioned that only part A is to be issued .However in rule 31(4) an option is available to employee to get consolidate part B if he has worked for two employer during the year.


      Rule 31(4)
      (4) If an assessee is employed by more than one employer during the year, each of the employers shall issue Part A of the certificate in Form No. 16 pertaining to the period for which such assessee was employed with each of the employers and Part B may be issued by each of the employers or the last employer at the option of the assessee.

      so it is mandatory for employer to issue form 16 in complete Part A as well as Part B.If not 100 Rs per day penalty is applicable.

      Further if your office is covered under RTI then you can ask information from them under RTI

      Delete
    2. The above point says..PArt-A is mandatory and part-b (it says "may be") optional. and hence they did not provided it. We were asking them since last 10 days..so no use.

      Delete
    3. Read complete part "May" has been used to allow a option to employee not to employer.

      Part B may be issued by each of the employers or the last employer at the option of the assessee

      Assessee here means employee.

      Further this option is only available where employee has worked for two or more employer during the year.

      101% it is required to be issued by Employer.

  24. Hi,

    I do not have any Salary income. I only have Interest income from my bank account.

    I am trying to efile using ITR-1, but I am getting a Validation error on the TDS tab of the excel sheet. The error message says "EmployerOrDeductorOrCollecterName at Sr. No 1 in Sheet TDS characters < > & ' " not allowed"

    I think this is due to the fact that Section 23, Details of TDS from Salary is empty (as I do not have any salary income and hence do not have any info to fill those cells).

    Kindly advise what I should do to get rid of this error.

    (Please note that I have to file ITR-1 since I need to get a refund for TDS that was deducted for my Interest income. Hence not filing is not an option for me and need to get rid of this error to do efiling.)

  25. Hi Raja Babu,

    I filled out a brand new ITR-1 spreadsheet and the error is still happening. I think it may be some inherent problem with the spreadsheet itself.

    As I indicated, I do not have any Salary income. So Section 23 on the TDS tab of the spreadsheet is blank. I have one entry on Section 24 where I indicated TDS for Interest income.

    Will you be able to do a test on your side to see if you are getting the same error?

  28. Hi Raja Babu,

    I e-filed my ITR yesterday and found that, the Total Income is shown with 1 (ONE) rupee extra compared to my Form 16. The INCOME TAX amount is SAME and there is nothing to paid or refunded. That extra One rupee in my Total Income was due to those decimal points, which could not be entered in the Excel sheet for the ITR E-filing.

    Do I need to refile my ITR please. My INCOME TAX is same as per the Form 16. Just the Total Income was increased by ONE RUPEE in ITR. If yes, do I need to send both the copies to them ?

  32. Hi Raja Babu,

    This is for my collegaue. The Form 16 shows the income after deduction as 988007. Now, while calculating the tax, the take the income as rounded to nearest 10, so they calculated the income as 988010, which is 3 Rupees more than the actual value and the Tax comes as 151825. When he enters the value in Excel, the income is not rounded and the Income tax comes are ONE rupee less 151824. Now it shows a Refund of RUPEE 1. It is possible to change the Income to 988010 (3 rupees more) like how it was calculated in the Form 16 to get rid of the ONE rupee refund thing.

Can you also pls tell me in case I have to claim exemption for 80G (Charity donations) which I cannot claim through my company and I enter relevant details in the 80 G tab available in the IVR form, should I also send the receipt received regarding the charity donation made while sending the acknowledgment of e filing?

    Also I can mention the tax paid via the URL u provided for if the IVR 1 shows some tax pending to be paid. Ie, I can pay tax via online and get the receipt online. This can be shown as tax paid

  35. Rajan Babu thanks a lot for all the replies.
    When I fill in the ITR_V form, it shows that I need to pay Rs.184 further. I had already paid Rs. 104,052 as income tax.

    Should I pay this amount before e filing or since it is only Rs.184, is it negligible?

  36. Dear Sir,

    I am working on rotational assignments In Indonesia. This means I work in Indonesia for 2 months and then get 1 month leave in India. My salary is paid by Indonesian employer after paying all taxes in Indonesia. Do I need to show my income earned in Indonesia in Income tax return and should I pay tax in India for the same. I don't have NRI status.Please advise.

    ReplyDelete

    1. For Indian resident income outside India is also taxable. So you have to add this income in Indian income tax return also and have to pay tax also.

      However ,if India and Indonesia have a Double taxation avoidance treaty (which I don't know)then you can adjust a tax paid in Indonesia from Indian Tax as per condition given in treaty under section 90/91 of the Income tax act.

      So you have study about the treaty between India and Indonesia (if any)

    I am a salaried employee and a TDS has been deducted by my employer (20% tax bracket) .
    Apart from that,I have received LIC Renewal commission of Rs.28000/-
    (Agency discontinued about 5 years back)and a TDS of Rs.2800/- has been deducted.
    Could you please help me on
    1. Do I get a deduction under section 57for LIC agents
    2. Does Late filing have any impact(as I dont have the form-16 from lIC handy to file the returns now)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The proper treatment of LIC commission is to show it as income from Business and profession and claim exp u/s 37 or other appropriate sections and fill ITR-4

      Further To check tds details check your form 26AS from efiling site of income tax
      My account taB

      Moreover a the tax is payable if no deduction claimed from 28000 for exp ,you should file return today and pay balance tax.

      But if you have incurred expenses to earn insurance premium and balance tax payable remain nil after adjustments then you may wait till 31.03.2013

    1. First you should pay the balance tax as soon as possible. Interest at 1 % is due from you plus interest u/s 234C .after that you can plan for your return . But I can't under why you are delaying the return for 3 month and why you have selected date after 3 months . Its hardly a 10-20 minutes hjob ,do it any time in the day and forget about penalty .

      As written in the post above penalty is applicable only if you file return after 31.03.2013.But in your case heavy tax is pending you should take quick action .

      Good news is here that due date has been extended to 31.08.2012 from 31st July ,2012

    -All the proof of investments claimed.
    -tax filing for ay 2007-08 till 2009-10

    Can get bank statements /credit card statements and expenses claimed receipt under 80c.

    I do not have rental agreement since I do not stay there. seems my earlier tax filing report even though filed is missing.

    My salary is 22000 per month and my employer is deducting 2200 as TDS per month. Now i have not filed any returns. I am paying LIC policy and PPF also. The job is a contractual job.
    Please help me out. Thanks

    1. Check you TDS certificate , if it for 16 then you are getting salary ,if it is on form 16A then it is a professional fees. Also check your form 26AS online after registration at income tax site.
      I assume it is professional receipt
      Your total fees is 22*12=264000
      from this amount you can deduct your expense like travelling ,phone exp or any other exp to earn this fees.

      further you can deduct ppf lic subject to maximum one lakh.

      So if you reduce income to 200000 then no tax payable by you and tax deducted by your company is refundable to you .

      file your return and get refund.

      Prepare books of accounts.Like cash book etc.

  80. Hi,

    I had two employers in the year 2011-12. My first employer gave me only part A of the form 16 and also gave working of part B in excel form. However, calculation was incorrect, so part B was refurbished in excel file and as per it I am supposed to get some refund. Part A tax submission figure matches with form 26AS. Now the employer says that part B is still not required despite of the corrections and all I need is only part A based on which I can file returns. My doubt is - in this case employer must have shown some income calculation to government while submitting my taxes. Now that calculation stands wrong and they seem to have submitted more taxes than they should have. Won't the employer now have to update this in government's record in order to maintain consistency in both tax and income figures in govt records and my form 16 calculation? If the employer doesn't update anything, then it means that tax paid details in form 16 is consistent with govt records but the income calculation details are not. Or the tax submission is the only details that an employer submits to the government and so I don't need to worry? Please let me know.

  81. What is the mode for payment of Interest for filing late returns. I have already paid taxes and I was not able to file returns on time. Now I want to pay the interest for it. How do I pay it? Through challan forms or will ITD issue me a demand?

  83. Dear Raja Babu,

    I filed ITR for both A.Y 2011-12 and 2012-13 online on 31st July 2012 and sent ITR-V to Bangalore.I have received email confirmation from IT deptt. for the receipt of ITR-V w.r.t. A.Y. 2011-12 ( for which I didn't have any due/refund) but didn't get any email confirmation for ITR-V receipt for A.Y 2012-13 for which I have some refund. Though If I check ITR-V receipt status for both returns on I.tax website, it says that they have been received.

    My question is, does it take more time for ITRs with refund and should I wait for email confirmation\refund ? or should I send ITR-V (for A.Y. 2012-13) again to be on safe side as 120 days will expire by end of nov. (120 days after submitting ITR online)?

  87. Dear Sir,

    I have filed for ITR through E-filing and I was not aware that net tax payable should be zero. I had a net tax payable on my ITR, it is a small amount as compared to the total tax(5% of the tax payed already). What shall I do? I have sent my ITR-V to the income tax department. Please guide me in this regard about the further procedure.

    1. Interest rate is 1 % one month from end of financial year and you have to pay interest on advance tax up to end of financial year.to calculate you should use income tax return utility for online return filing

  90. I would also like to bring to your notice explanation 3 of section 271(1)(c) which provides for penalty in case of non filing of return without reasonable cause. In that case penalty can be levied from 100% of tax to 300 % of tax payable by the assessee.

  93. I filed my returns for 2012-13 and sent the signed ITRV form by regular post. I did not check but looks like it was never received by IT department.

    I realized this early June and sent another signed copy with a covering letter explaining why I was resending it. The online portal now shows received, but rejected as it was post due date.

    What should I do now? How can I upload a revised return - what should I choose under "Return filed under section" in ITR1 form so that I can mark it as a revised form and upload again?

    Thanks for your inputs.

    1. As you are not required to file Income tax return ,so penalty can be imposed even if you have filed late return

      I assume that you are referring ay 2012-13 as for ay 13-14 still time pending up to 31.07.2013/31.03.2014

  95. Hi Rajan Babu,
    I have filed the return for AY 2012-2013. But it needs to be revised. And based on that revision, there will be additional tax outgo. I can pay that and revise my filing in August only. Will that mean, I will lose out on any deductions that I can claim -like section 80's? Also, what will be the penalty if i pay the additional tax in August?
    Thanks
    Ajith

    1. I think you are referring ay 2013-14 not ay 2012-13.

      No worry ,you can pay balance tax in august ,Penalty will be around 1 % per month on balance tax only.

      further section 80 dis allowance not applicable on deduction claimed by common people ,so you can claim deduction like 80C etc any way.

      further due date not extended up to 5.08.2013
