It is imperative that salaried individuals recognize tax filing as one of the benefits rather than considering it a cost. The tax deductions made from the salary every month can only translate into savings when the taxpayer file the return of income tax at the end of a financial year. This leads to the inclusion of name in the ATL – Active Taxpayers list.

Once an individual’s name is in ATL, the tax rate significantly reduces. In light of the recent revisions, the government exposes non-filers to double the rate as to that for filers. Apart from the high tax rate, a non-filer also tends to miss the opportunity to claim rebate due to disengagement with the tax planning process. A part from that, non-compliance could also result in penalties.
