You should fill TDS carefully while filing ITR. If there is a difference between the TDS filed and where it is deposited, then you may receive a notice from the Income Tax Department. Therefore, before filling ITR, find out how much TDS has been deducted.
You have to tell in ITR how much you earn in a financial year. Along with this, investment information also has to be given. In such a situation, if you hide the income from investment, then you may get a notice. To avoid notice, ask for a statement of interest from your bank and put it in ITR. Apart from this, give information about the income received from any other source as well.
High value transaction
If you do any high value transaction, which is usually different from your normal transaction, then also the notice of Income Tax Department can come. Suppose your annual income is six lakh rupees. But 15 lakh rupees were deposited in your account in one year. In such a situation, the Income Tax Department can investigate it, and your source can be asked.
