New Delhi, Aug 21 (IANS) Special counters will be opened for salaried persons including pensioners to file I-T tax returns between August 24 and August 30 at the Pratyaksha Kar Bhawan here, an official statement said on Friday.

The special counters are being organised to facilitate smaller tax payers having a salary or pension income to file paper returns.

“Taxpayers may note that for the assessment year 2015-16, corresponding to the financial year 2014-15, e-filing of return of income is mandatory for persons whose total income exceeds Rs.5 lakhs or if the return contains a claim for refund. Paper returns in such cases will not be accepted,” the statement said.
