The government of India has built an infrastructure to collect taxes online via net banking/ Debit cards from selected banks. This article explains the payment of the tax process through ICICI net banking. Taxpayers after filing their ITR on the Income Tax e-Filing platform will get a challan. The payment has to be done on the basis of that challan through TIN-NSDL. This not only helps in easing the Tax Collection process but also makes it quick and hassle-free. Taxes in India are of two types:

Corporate Tax- It refers to as a direct tax imposed on corporate entities. The taxpayer pays the tax on the income or capital invested in a company. Corporate tax can also be referred to as Company tax.

Income Tax- As the name suggests, its a tax on income earned. As per the Indian Constitution, all income earned by Residents and income received/earned by Non-Residents in India is subjected to Income Tax. Income Tax is paid by individuals and other entities only.

  1. Hey @TeamQuicko

    I have LTCG of more than 7 lakhs from the equity for this year. Is there a way to reduce my tax liability? Also, do I have to pay the tax in advance? If I fail to do so, what will be the penalty/interest percentage I have to pay during my tax filing in 2020?

  2. Hi @vivek25,

    You are liable to pay advance tax if your total outstanding tax liability for the financial year after TDS is above INR 10,000.

    To calculate your advance tax liability you need to add your estimated income for the financial year from all sources including - Salary, House Property, Capital Gains, Business & Profession and other sources.
    Next, subtract all eligible deductions, expenses, and Tax Credit available to you.
    Now, if your outstanding tax liability is above INR 10,000, you need to pay advance tax to avoid penalty u/s 234B and 234C.

    Hope this answers your query :slight_smile:

    You can also use the advance tax calculator to know your advance tax liability under the old and new tax regime

  3. Hi
    When I pay the advance tax through the ZERODHA-QUICKO platform, does it get saved/stored? For example I have paid for Q1. so when I have to pay for Q2, will this be automatically calculated?

  4. I have paid the Advance tax of Q1, but didn’t received any email from income tax portal! So, Is that normal? I received the Challan No. receipt, but no email from IT portal!

  5. Hey @Gaurav,

    Once you pay the Advance Tax, you have an option to download the challan. In case you missed downloading it, the tax credit for the same will be reflected in your Form 26AS.

  6. Hey Girimon_Vasudevan,

    When you pay advance tax through our tax planner app, you should download the challan and then you
    need to add the it the advance tax toggle under the tax credits in the tax planner tab to see your tax credits reflected in the appropriate quarter.

  7. @Nireka
    Thanks. I have done it for the current year.
    I did not do it for the last year. How can I add it now?

  8. Hi @Girimon_Vasudevan,

    If you missed paying advance tax last year, then the interest penalty may be applicable u/s 234B & 234C.
    You can pay that as along with your self-assessment tax the filing your Income Tax Return

  9. Sorry, I didn’t miss the payment. I missed to add it in the tax credit on your portal. I am unable to add it now.

  10. @Girimon_Vasudevan, once you login to the Tax Planner navigate to Tax Planner > Income Situation > Tax Credits to add the tax credits.
