Avoid Late IT Filing or Pay Penalty

Stricter Compliance from Income Tax Department starting AY 2018-19

The Finance ministry during FY 2017-18 Budget introduced a new Sectoin 234F to levy penalty for late filers OR non-filres of Income Tax Returns. As we are in a low tax compliance society, it's very important to understand income brackets, timing, penalty amounts and how to avoid such situation.
