Advance Tax is a tax that you are required to pay tax to the government on your income throughout the year as you earn this income.
Steps to deposit Advance Tax offline:
- Step 1: Visit the bank branch and ask for the applicable tax payment challan form-Challan 280 (in this case).
- Step 2: Fill in the details as required in the form. The details asked in the form are the same as required in the online form.
- Step 3: Go to the relevant bank’s counter and submit the filled-in Challan 280 form along with the money. The tax payment can be made either in cash or cheque
- Step 4: Once you give the money and challan and the bank official will give you a receipt by tearing off a portion of the challan, filling in details of payment and stamping it.
Once you have paid your advance tax offline, you should keep the receipts safely as proof of payment. It can approximately take up to 10 days to reflect in your Form 26AS. Your income tax payment should show in your Form 26AS under ‘Part C – Details of Tax Paid’.
