Dear Sir/Madam,

Sub: Filling of IT  Returns by every Governmetn Servent -Reg


             As your might be aware every person who is having income more than Rs.2,50,000 is bound to file his/her return income. This includes the Government Servants at Chennai are not filling their income tax returns. i hope you will agree that as government servants ourselves are violating law by not filling our income tax returns, we don't have any moral right to blame other sections of society.

     From this year ie Assessment Year 2018-19 on wards , the parliament has amended the income Tax Act by introducing a new section 234F for imposing late fee on every person who is not filling his/her return of income within the due date. For salaried employees , the due date is 31-07-2018. This means all the salaried employees have to file their returns of income for the pay late fee amounting between Rs.100 to Rs.10,000 as per the provisions of section 234. Also a penalty of Rs.5000/- can be imposed under section 271F on them in addition to this they can be prosecuted under section 2769CC of the Income Tax Act for jail terms varying between three months to seven years.
    
    It may please noted that these provisions to all the persons are applicable to all the persons having gross income(Excluding deductions) above Rs.2,50,000/- It is understood that many persons who are claiming deductions under section 80C etc.
