Now file IT Return with your Mobile Phones
This tax filing season you can use your mobile phone or tab to file your returns. MakeMyReturns.com, an online tax filing portal, has launched a new app which can be used by mobile phone and tablet users for filing their income tax returns.
Different from the already existing income tax calculator apps that are available, this is the first tax filing app which has been launched by a tax filing company in India.
Speaking about the idea behind launching such an app, Vikram Ramchand, founder of MakeMyReturns.com said, “The mobile landscape in India has been witnessing a drastic change especially with the advent of smartphones. A lot of internet consumption now takesplace on mobile phones itself.
“Hence, this app will give taxpayers the freedom to file their returns from just about anywhere as they don’t necessarily have to log in to a computer or physically go to a chartered accountant”.
The app can be downloaded by any android or iphone user from the Google play store or the Apple store. Once downloaded, the user has to create his/her account, fill in their personal information, salary details, home loan information if any, interest income if any, check their deductions and finally file their returns.
With all the necessary information in place, the entire process only takes about 10 minutes to complete. In case of any issues while filing, one can also report the issue directly to the customer service department by using the app itself.
As safety and security is one of the common concerns of people, the app assures that every return that is filed goes through the most secure and technologically advanced servers.
After filing the returns, you can keep a track of all the sections and maintain a summary of your tax filing on the app itself. Every customer is also given customer service assistance right till the end of the process irrespective of whether they choose to opt to self-file their income tax returns free of cost or ask for expert/premium assistance.
“In the long term, we are planning to automate our platform to the extent that a person would need only his/her PAN (Permanent Account Number) to use the system which will automatically pull up all the data required for filing their returns, which will make life much easier for any tax payer,” added Ramchand.
