Here it starts,

  3. Find the Dashboard and Select on the “Filing of Income Tax Return” tab after login.
  1. Select the appropriate fields if you are filing tax for this Financial Year.

  1. You need to fill the six tabs to complete the income tax filing.
  2. I am going to explain about how to fill the “Computation of Income and Tax” tab, the remaining tabs need your personal details.

3 easy steps:

Step 1:

Fill B1 – (i) Salary field by the following calculation. = Total Salary + Bonus – HRA – Sodexho – Prof Tax – Medical Standard Deduction – Others (Edu Exempt & Tax on employment) = 896387 + 82000 – 48765 – 18000 – 2498 – 40000 – 4898 = 866226

Step 2:

Fill B2 – (v) Interest Payable on borrowed capital field, if you avail home loan. Eg. 115,778

Step 3:

In the part C, fill your respective claims under Section 80C & 80D. 
Eg: 80C – 1,50,000(EPF + PPF + Home Loan Principle)

80D -Medical Insurance Premium – 25,000 

Note: 80GG will be applicable if you don’t receive HRA. 80EE will be applicable, if you are the first time house buyer and the loan must be sanctioned between 01.04.2016 to 31.03.2017
