How does one Pay Tax Online Using iMobile Pay?
Beginning of every financial year, any individual whose income is taxable is required to pay a direct tax. Earlier, the process of paying direct tax involved a lengthy and complicated paperwork process; however, the same process has now become easy and can be completed online.
ICICI Bank with its technology-driven banking gives you an easier option to pay direct tax online using the iMobile Pay app.
Every person is required to pay direct tax levied by the government on any taxable income as per the Income Tax Act, 1961, if it exceeds the basic exception limit. The income tax is applicable on salaried individuals, firms, companies, Hindu Undivided Family, local authorities and limited liability partnerships, etc. Paying direct tax on time is imperative.
In the event of non-payment, the government may penalize or take legal action. Therefore, it is crucial to pay on time to avoid penal consequences. While some prefer the offline mode, there are many who prefer online payment of income tax. ICICI Bank’s iMobile Pay app allows you to carry out tax payments online seamlessly.
iMobile Pay is a mobile app that caters to both payments as well as banking needs and allows you to shop online, pay bills, scan and pay, apply for loans, link your Accounts and more. The app is available for both ICICI Bank and non-ICICI Bank customers.
