Income tax returns are necessary to be filed by every individual who is earning an amount of income. In the modern world, there has been a gradual increase in technology. We can do everything by just sitting at home through the online procedure.
Now when we talk about Income Tax Return filing, it has also become an easy way because it can be filed online. Despite many advantages of online procedure, people fail to remember to file their return. And at the end the question arises that can we file income tax return of previous year?
The answer to this question is “Yes”. You can file your income tax return of the previous year also. Don’t panic, an individual can file its return until the completion of two financial years from the end of financial year when the return is to be filed.
