Income Tax Filing: Don’t File Until 15 June

Don't File ITR in a Hurry! File correctly after 15 June

Income Tax return filing season is open. While getting your refund quickly might sound tempting, waiting a bit can save you money, time and IT notice hassle. Although the Income tax filing forms are available, salaried individuals should wait to file their returns until 15 June 2024, according to a report by ITD. This is because their Annual Information Statements (AIS) and Form 26AS are typically fully updated by 31 May 2024, and salaried people receive their form-16 within 15  days from their TDS return filed, until 15th June 2024.

Why wait until 15 June to file?

While some information may start appearing in AIS and Form 26AS before 31st May 2024, the data for Dec 2024 to March 2024 is usually updated by 31 May 2024., your employer's tax certificate (Form 16) and all your income sources on your government records (Form 26AS and AIS) are usually updated.

Don't Miss Out on Savings

Many salaried people can claim deductions that lower their tax amount. But incomplete information can mean missing these savings! Waiting gives you time to gather documents like investment proofs or medical receipts to claim every deduction you deserve, potentially leading to a bigger refund!

  Why Waiting Until June 15 Benefits? While filing your taxes early might seem convenient, waiting a little bit can ensure a smoother and more accurate filing process. Here's why waiting until June 15 is a wise move:
  • Complete Picture, Accurate Return
Consider your tax return as a report of your income for the entire year. Filing early might miss details from the last quarter (December-March). By June 15th, your employer's tax certificate (Form 16) and government records (Form 26AS and AIS) are typically updated. This complete picture helps you avoid errors and potential problems with the tax department.
  • Maximize Your Deductions, Maximize Your Refund
Many salaried individuals qualify for deductions that reduce their tax bill. But incomplete information can prevent you from claiming these deductions. Waiting gives you time to gather documents like investment proofs or medical receipts to maximize your deductions, potentially leading to a larger tax refund.
  • Avoid Delays and Notices
The government receives information from banks and companies by May 31st. Filing before June 15th might mean this information hasn't been updated yet, which can lead to delays in processing your return or even notices from the tax department. Waiting until June 15th allows everything to sync up for a smoother and more efficient filing experience. Also, Check |Income tax return Filing service in Bangalore

The tax department will allow tax credits or income details purely on what is shown in Form 26AS/AIS. Only"
Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the income reported in the ITR is accurate if you discover that the filed ITR is based on incorrect income information, then you can file a revised ITR by on or before 31st December 2024. Your tax advisor should verify the tax deducted as shown in Form 16 and Form 16A is consistent with the information in AIS and Form 26AS. Any discrepancies may lead to difficulties for you as a taxpayer.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to consult your Tax advisor to file the correct and original ITR using accurate and complete income information.
