Income tax refund came or not. It is very easy to know. Another question remains that if the refund has come, will it get interest. Most of the taxpayers think that interest also comes with the refund. Although it is not so. Because according to the rules of Income Tax, interest is not available on every refund. Well now let’s understand the formula to check Refund.

How Much Refund Came

Tax Liability Low

If Tax Liability is less after paying the tax then you are eligible for Income Tax refund. That is, TDS, TCS or other means tax is deducted more but in reality the tax is less, then the department will refund you. This IT Refund can be taken by filling the Taxpayer Return. Income Tax department will give income tax refund after processing ITR.

Interest on Tax Refund

According to Tax Expert and CA Arvind Dubey, interest will be available on Tax Refund only if the outstanding amount is more than 10 percent of the amount of tax generated. Refund does not come on time after filing ITR. The reason for this may be not giving complete information while filing the return. While filing the return, it is necessary to fill the correct bank account number, correct IFSC code of the bank. If the IFSC code of the bank is also wrong then the refund will not come.

New income tax website

There are some problems in the new website of Income Tax Department, incometax.gov.in. However, the department has added many special new features to this site. For example, the complete account of the expenses and earnings of the taxpayer will be revealed as soon as you enter the PAN and Aadhaar number. Not only this, bank or LIC statement will also not have to be given for filing income tax return. The details of the money invested in the stock market or the dividend received from there will also come in it itself.
