Further, one most important issue that I face is no resolution of grievance by the ITR department. I filed two grievances but no satisfactory resolution was given by them. I think there are lots of grievances pending this year and they do not have enough time to resolve them. So they close these grievances without any resolution.
Almost from the last 40 years, I am submitting my ITRs. But I never did it on my own. Generally, the company auditor was helping me in filing the returns as long as I was in service. Once I have become self-employed, I contacted a known auditor who is doing the ITR filing for me. He is my friend and helps me in all the ways to see that minimum tax is paid. I was talking to him last month and he was telling me that this year many people who were doing earlier on their own are approaching him for ITR filing.
Knowledge is power.
I had seen many changes in the tax filing procedures, forms etc. Every time, after the initial unfamiliarity it becomes easy . This time also I found it easy. Probably this is the first time I could file my Income Tx return in one sitting at one go. I accepted whatever was pre filled and filed the return. As I did not have any tax saving investment, I had to remit additional tax as given by the system. That was avoidable had I done some tax saving investment in time.
But one small change I had to make in th prefilled data. It had included my last year IT refund amount as this year's income. This I corrected.
