Frequently asked question on Challan 280

How to reprint Challan 280?

How to avoid mistakes while paying tax?

a) At the time of paying tax, either self-assessment or advance tax, make sure you select the assessment year correctly. Most people find the terms assessment year and financial year confusing. Assessment year is the year immediately following the financial year for which the return has to be filed.

b) Another mistake, which is usually made, is not selecting the correct codes. At the time of paying tax online, you are required to select radio buttons for different codes representing different types of tax payments. If the wrong radio button/code is selected then the tax payment made by you will not be reflected in your Form 26AS for the correct assessment year. While paying taxes as an individual, always select code (0021) – Income Tax other than companies.

 

Pay Taxes Online using Challan 280 using Offline method

If you are unable to make tax payments online, then you have the option to pay offline by visiting your bank branch. Follow the steps below to make your payment offline.

  1. Visit the bank branch and ask for the applicable tax payment challan form – in this case Challan 280.
  2. Fill in the details as required in the form. The offline form is similar to the one shown on the online platform, i.e., on the TIN-NSDL website.
  3. Go to the relevant bank’s counter and submit the filled-in Challan 280 form along with the money. You can make tax payment either in cash or cheque. However, the bank may be reluctant to accept large cash payments; therefore paying via cheque is advisable. In addition, it is easier to trace and keep a record of the payment made by you. If you wish to make the payment via cheque, make the cheque in favor of “Income Tax Department.”
  4. Bank official will take the money and challan from you and give you a receipt by tearing off a portion of the challan, filling in details of payment and stamping it.

Once you have paid your tax either online or offline, you should keep the receipts safely as proof of payment. After paying tax it can take up to 10 days to reflect in your Form 26AS. Your income tax payment should show in your Form 26AS as ‘Advance tax’ or ‘Self-assessment tax’ or the type of tax paid.

Once you have made the tax payment, you can check its status on the TIN-NSDL website. To check the status, follow these steps:

  1. On the TIN-NSDL website, click on ‘Services‘ and select ‘Challan Status Inquiry‘.

  2. Amount Matched: This means that the bank has sent your tax payment to the income tax department but the department has yet to acknowledge it.
  3. Received by TIN: It means that the income tax department has received your tax payment. It will show the date on which your payment was received.
