    1. Hi Sanjeev,
      The standard deduction is applicable only for salary payment. It is not applicable for Honorarium payment as it is considered as a service payment

    1. Hi Rajat,
      No, you will not be having any penalty. But, interest u/s 234B & 234C will be applied on the due amount.

  2. Hello,
    I own a small business which not comes under gst
    I want to pay tax for that under
    Self assessment tax as local accountant said
    But now he is telling we can’t pay tax for 2018-19 as it attract penalty
    Only 2019-20 is payable.
    So y can’t I pay 18-19 tax now if so what is the due date to pay that

    1. Hi Mr.Likith,
      Self assessment tax is to be paid with required late payment interest which is 1% of tax amount per month delay. The payment has to be made before the return filing.

  3. Sir,
    My mother who is a super senior citizen has income from family pension and some savings bank interest only. Which ITR she is required to file for the AY 2019-20?
    In ITR1 for AY 2019-20…..In Part A (General Information) a column “Nature of Employment”…..Govt. PSU, Pensioners, Others has been added which is mandatory to fill in online efiling. But my mother is a family pensioner which is included in “Income from other sources”. Unlike previous years there is no option like “not applicable” under “Nature of Employment”. Which option she should chose?

    1. Hi Mr.Bikas,
      She has to file ITR 1. Please check the Tools again, as the income tax dept given structure consists of NOT APPLICABLE option.
