Infact, there are 5 days, including March 27, are left to file your return and last moment rush could delay your ITR filing.

Meanwhile, there are several rules that will change from April 1, including related to Income Tax. From April 1, one’s investment in EPF account is no more fully exempted from the income tax. From 1s April 2021, one’s investment in EPF above Rs 2.5 lakh in a financial year is taxed.
One’s EPF interest on EPF investment above Rs 2.5 lakh in a particular year is taxable. Income tax rule for TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) will get changed from 1st April 2021, which is just a few days away. In her budget speech, Sitharaman said that if a person doesn’t file income tax return (ITR), then in that case, the TDS rate on bank deposits would double. That means, even if an earning individual doesn’t fall in the income tax slab, the TDS rate levied on them will be doubled (in case the earning individual does not file ITR).
