Saral Income Tax Software is one of the many tax software programs available to help in calculating the Income Tax Return in India. The software is unique and is designed with the latest of technologies available. And what makes it even greater is that it is free!
How is that possible? Relyon (the company that makes the software), believes that its' software products should only be purchased after the customer expresses their complete satisfaction with their products.
Saral Income Tax can be used freely for the calculation for the ITR-1, ITR-2, and ITR-3. Anyone who has a computer can download the software. With it, they can make Electronic Returns, data entries, and can, if they choose to, generate Paper Returns if they feel that e-filing is not something that they are comfortable doing.
If a person decides to use the free version of Saral Income Tax Software, they will be somewhat limited. Some of the limitations are as following: there will only be eReturn generation for ITR-1, ITR-2, and ITR-3. They will only be able to receive the complete paper return form for those respective forms. Therefore, if other forms are needed to file taxes correctly, Saral will not produce them. They may show up in the system, but they can only be generated for verification purposes. Those forms will only be seen in a Non-Filable format. This can cause problems because depending on the complexity and range of your Indian income taxes, not have those other forms can cause some individuals to waste a lot of time with this product. Another disadvantage in using this product is that the Relyon support team will only answer problem-shooting questions through the email.
However, if a person uses the completed and registered version of Saral Income Tax, they are granted the following features and benefits: they are able to export other needed additional data from various software sources like Saral Tax Office, they can validate their tax return against DTD Schema, they will be able to create multiple files for any number of assesses they may have, they can receive a written acknowledgement for the non-return, they can input data entries for all the ITR forms (ITR-1 -ITR-8), XML returns are received by the Income Tax Department and last - they can choose to get paper returns for all their chosen forms.
In conclusion, filing your Indian income taxes is never easy. However, with this free tax software program it may make the process of filing easier to deal with.
