Advance Tax Payments
Advance tax is the amount of income tax that is paid much in advance rather than a lump-sum payment at the year-end. Also known as earn tax, advance tax is to be paid in installments as per the due dates decided by the income tax department.
Both individuals as well as businesses are liable to pay advance tax if their tax liability is greater than or equal to INR 10,000 post TDS payment in a fiscal year.
