Thank you for the information. I need one more clarification. As per the notification, it infers that all assesses are required to file Wealth tax return whether they are liable to WT or not.
For instance, a salaried employee paying income tax of Rs. 12,000/- and having net wealth of 25.00 lacs, has to submit WT return in manual form.
This is an additional burden to the common man who is not aware of the statutory obligations.
Great Article you have post for wealth income tax. i appreciate and thanks for posting valuable information about income tax.
