It is the social responsibility of every Indian Citizen to pay the tax that has been imposed on them for state assistance. The money we pay as tax goes to many places. Not only paying right amount tax but paying tax on time also matters a lot. In order to facilitate the easy and quick filing of income tax returns by taxpayers, the Income Tax department has launched an “e-filing Lite”.
E-filing lite is the lighter version of the e-fling portal. This new e-filing facility comes just days after the central board of direct taxes extended the due date for filing income tax returns. On July 23, the government extended the due date for filing income tax returns by individuals for the financial year 2018-19 by a month till August 31. The e-filing lite option is available on the home page of the e-filing portal. You all just need to click on ‘Portal Login’ button” to access all the services under the current e-filing portal.
One of the senior officials also said that a new tab for “lite” is provided on the web portal and once the registered taxpayers login their page, they will be provided the essential links that can enable e-filing of ITRs and Form 26AS. e-filling lite does not have tabs like e-proceeding, e-nivaran, compliance, worklist, and profile setting. However, these regular tabs are available on the standard version of the e-filing facility.
