What is Advance Income Tax?

The amount of income tax that is paid in advance is called the advance tax. This tax is paid in advance rather than a lump-sum payment at the year-end. It is also known as earn tax and is paid in instalments as per the due dates decided by the income tax department.

Advance tax can also be called ‘pay-as-you-earn scheme. This tax helps taxpayers in helping the government and also themselves by not finding it hard to pay the whole tax at one go at the end. It helps remove the burden to pay a lump-sum amount at a single time.
