How to pay advance tax? – Some tips - V.S.Vadivel, FCA, ACS, Chartered Accountant

Under income-tax law in India, tax-payers are required to pay advance tax on their income, which they expect to earn during the current year.  For instance, for financial year 2004-05 (relevant to assessment year 2005-06), advance tax is payable in installments during 2004-05 itself.  No doubt, the advance tax so paid is adjusted against the total tax assessed for that assessment year, i.e., assessment year 2005-06.  The provisions relating to advance tax apply to all assessees.  It is clearly implicit therein that a representative assessee is not exempt from liability to pay advance tax.  This write-up by Mr. V.S.Vadivel, FCA, ACS, Chartered Accountant deals with tax-tips on how to pay advance tax in India.
