  • Income from other sources: Income from other sources may include interest from fixed deposits,Recurring deposit,interest of saving account above Rs.10,000/- Family pension etc.
  • If tax is deducted at source then confirm that same is deposited against your pan no and same can be confirmed through form 26AS. Make sure that you are in possession of TDS certificate.

Filing income tax is compulsory in this year if your income is in taxable limit unlike last year where it was exempted for income up to 5L and I think one should take view of above points before filing the returns.
