Background of Income Tax Return (ITR) Filing in India

In 2018, more than 10 million[1] (yes that’s 1 crore) new taxpayers came into the income tax net and paid taxes for the first time. The total number of taxpayers in India stands at more than 6 crore (60 million) taxpayers active in India. Compared to India’s population of approx. 1.26 billion people, the number is very low, at around less than 5% of the population. This is probably an impact of the introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) in India which came into effect from 1st July 2017. Millions of individuals who were not paying taxes earlier have started paying tax now since they are getting notices from the income tax department (ITD). Even the ITD has made significant efforts to increase the taxpayer base and tax revenue of the government by sending more than crores of messages and emails periodically. The income tax department has invested significant amount of time and money in upgrading the information systems to handle such large numbers. Since more than 1 crore new taxpayers came into the system, lot of them faced problems in registering themselves or their businesses on the income tax department portal incometaxindiaefiling gov in. This article will give a step by step guide for first time users to register themselves on income tax portal and successfully pay their income tax or get their tax refund due as soon as possible.  (In case any Indian taxpayer needs any help, we have a panel of tax experts available at www.FinanceBazaar.com to help and guide).
