Benefits of E-Filing Your Tax Returns

November 07, 2016 4204

Filing tax returns online, or e-filing as it is called, has many benefits for taxpayers.

Some of these benefits include:

  1. Prompt processing
    The acknowledgment of Income Tax Return (ITR) is quick. More importantly, refunds, if any, are processed faster than paper-filed returns.

  2. Better accuracy
    E-filing software with built-in validations and electronic connectivity is seamless and minimizes errors considerably. Paper-filings can be prone to errors. Also, when any paper-based form is migrated to the electronic system, there is a possibility of human error in data entry.

  3. Convenience
    No time and place constraint in filing returns online. E-filing facility is available 24/7 and you can file anytime, anywhere at your convenience.

  4. Confidentiality
    Better security than paper filings since your data is not accessible to anyone either by design or by chance. With paper filings details of your income can fall in the wrong hands at your chartered accountant's office or in the Income Tax Department's office.

  5. Accessibility to past data
    You can easily access past data while filing returns. Most e-filing applications store data in a secure manner and allow for easy access at the time of filing subsequent returns.

  6. Proof of receipt
    You get prompt confirmation of filing, both at time of filing and subsequently, via email on your registered email id

  7. Ease of use
    E-filing is friendly and the detailed instructions make it easy even for individuals not very conversant with the internet

  8. Electronic banking
    Convenience of direct deposit for refund and direct debit for tax payments. You have the option to file now, pay later - decide what day to debit your bank account for tax payment, among other convenience features.
