e-Lagaan's friendly return preparation tool is free for individual salaried tax payers with income below Rs 350,000
Put off that Income Tax return for too long? Now in the final week, before the July 31 deadline, you are in a mild panic? Relax, this year, Indian tax payers are being offered a host of web based services -- and even the government has got its act place to facilitate e-filing.
A Bangalore-based startup, Lamingo Systems, has created a user friendly portal that eases the pain of preparing IT returns. There are two tiers of services priced at Rs 149 and Rs 249, depending on the special features like clubbing of income, carry forward loss/profit etc. But what sets apart e-Lagaan from dozens of similar sites is its free tax return preparation tool for single employer salaried persons or pensioners whose total taxable income is below Rs 350,000. This means a lot of people wjho would be filling the ITR-1 form this year.
e-Lagaan is the brainchild of a small team headed by chartered accountant Monika Rungta and IT/financial analyst Navin Kumar.
