An Income Tax Return is the type of tax-form which is used to file income tax with the Income Tax Department. The Tax Return is usually a predefined worksheet formula with the income figures which are used to calculate the tax liability in the documents.
The Law states that the tax must be filled every year for an individual or business that received income during the year, whether through the regular income/wages, dividends, interests, capital gains or other sources.
