Do I need to pay interest on the income tax due?


During FY 2010-11, I was associated with 2 different employers (between Apr 2010 - Feb 2011 : employer1, Mar 2011 : employer2).

At employer1, TDS was nill as the net taxable income was well within the limits. However, when the total income for FY 2010-11 is computed (income from employer1 + income from employer2), the net taxable income is INR 166370. This essentially means that I haven't paid tax either in the form of TDS/Self-assessment before Mar 2011.

Since I am filing the ITR now, I understand that I am supposed to pay due tax of INR 656.

Should I also pay an interest of 1% of the due amount from Apr 2011 to current date in addition to the due amount? Please clarify.

Thanks in advance!

As your total pending tax liability is less than Rs 10,000; no interest is payable under section 234b and 234c.

You just need to pay due tax only and file income tax return before 31st July.
