I can still remember those days during 2007 & 2008 when I just joined my first job. At the end of every financial year, everybody used to be busy with filing income tax return. There was a specified person who used to help everybody to file IT return.
Not many online tax management firms were active that time and people were not aware about all those online income tax management services. Most of the online income tax filing firms were just founded.
But nowadays everyone knows about those firms. People started use those services. In general online income tax return services are free but if someone needs help from professional or any add on service then he needs to pay. Anybody can fill income tax return by himself or even he can upload form 16 and it will be filled by the web portal, he just needs to verify and submit.
This is basically official web portal of income tax department, Ministry of Finance, Government of India. This portal is focused for providing information related to income tax to its citizens, maintain transparency and effective administration. This web portal also provide large number of tax related services.
