Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. Can I claim the 80C deductions at the time of filing return in case I have not submitted proof to my employer?
    Proofs for making investments are submitted to the employer before the end of a Financial Year (FY) so that the employer considers these investments while determining your taxable income and the tax deduction that needs to be made.
