If not filled return?
If you have not filed your Income Tax Return by 31st December 2021, then you have time till 31st March 2022. But now you have to pay the penalty for filing the return. If your taxable income is more than Rs 5 lakh then you will have to pay a penalty of Rs 5,000 and if the taxable income is less than Rs 5 lakh then you will have to pay a fine of Rs 1,000. But if you filed the return after March 31, 2022, then you will have to pay a hefty interest on the tax due with a penalty of Rs 10,000.
