    I have paid a total Self Assessment Tax of Rs 814/- (Basic Tax Rs 790/- + Education Cess Rs 24/-) for AY 2017-18. What amount should I put as Tax Paid (column 4 of IT Details of Advance Tax and Self Assessment Tax Payments) in ITR-1? If I input Rs 814/- in that column the system calculation is showing Rs20/- as Refund (item D13 of Part D). Do I then put Rs 790/- (basic tax) in the Tax Paid column? Moreover, do I have to pay any interest on the Self Assessment Tax?

  3. Very informative article but i am not able to get the answer to my query,
    I had e verified the ITR and then realise that it still shows tax payable so i immediately paid the payable amount through challan 280.

    How can i update my itr to adjust this tax amount.

  4. Can we pay self assessment tax through other person debit card and paying him offline

  7. I am not having net banking facility to pay challan 280. please explain in details about filing and paying challan 280 by offline. what should do after this offline payment through bank whether do I have to update anything with this counter foil ( if yes give the link to update) or the bank would do this?

    • You’ll need to fill up the details in your return form. So keep the counter foil handy. Also the above payment would be reflected in your Form 26AS in a weeks time but you can file your ITR before that too.

      • what should do after this offline payment through bank whether do I have to update anything with this counter foil ( if yes give the link to update) or the bank would do this?

        • Bank would pass the information to income tax and subsequently get updated in Form 26AS. If you need the same to file returns note down the details.
