Income Tax Return: Employed people definitely get their salary every month. After all, people choose employment only because they keep earning every month. However, whatever way people are earning, they have to do one thing in a year. This is the job of filing income tax return. The last date for filing Income Tax Returns through Individual Taxpayers is approaching. In such a situation, these people should file their income tax return as soon as possible.
This is the last date

In such a situation, before the salary of the month of July this time, people should tackle a very important task. Individual taxpayers will have to file income tax returns for the financial year 2021-22 by 31 July 2022. In such a situation, people should file their income tax return soon.
May be fined
