No filing of tax returns if salary is only income

In a big relief from cumbersome tax filing process for the salaried class, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today proposed to exempt them from filing tax returns unless they have other sources of income.
The government will be issuing a notification exempting 'classes of persons' from the requirement of furnishing income tax returns, said the Memorandum to the Finance Bill 2011.
The decision, which will come into effect from June 1, 2011, will reduce the compliance burden on small taxpayers, it added.
Salaried taxpayers who do not have other sources of income and whose incomes are subject to Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) will be excluded from filing returns.
"Therefore, in cases where there is no other source of income, filing of a return is duplication of existing information," the Memorandum said.

It may be mentioned that normal pension is treated as salary income in the Income Tax Act and thus the retired persons will be automatically included in this bracket.
