Why do I have to file returns in the Assessment year and not in the financial year?

Asked on 20-06-2018 by Anonymous -

Answered by NewsBytes

The income from any particular financial year is evaluated and taxed in the assessment year. Hence, income tax return forms have AY. As income is earned in a financial year but it cannot be taxed before it is earned, so, it has to be evaluated and taxed after the financial year ends. Hence, taxpayers have to select AY while filing their income tax returns.
