E-filing With H&R Block is Easy, Time-saving and EfficientJul 21 2016,
The concept of e-filing taxes is gathering momentum ever since the Income Tax department has introduced e-filing a few years ago. Tax filing is a once in a year, but an extremely important activity for any individual.
In a research study conducted by H&R Block with a leading research company, it was found that 89% of the samples were aware of online income tax return filing. 22% of the samples filed through the government's portal while 78% filed through external mediums or are dependent on external help to file their taxes. Anyone with an income of more than Rs 5,00,000 needs to compulsorily e-file his/her taxes. Tax filing is perceived as an important activity since ITR is an important document for loan processing, VISA and to maintain a good CIBIL score.
Tax filing is largely perceived by many as a tedious and complicated activity. The research conducted, surveyed people from various income levels and age groups to understand their tax filing concerns. The insights on perceptions and expectations of people from a tax filing service provider who provides assistance of a tax expert were collected. Largely, it was found out that people choose a tax expert who is recommended by a friend or relative or has a high ranking on Google. Transparency, reliability, prompt and proactive service from an expert who is well-versed with latest tax laws, repository of all tax documents at one place, good communication skills and easy reachability from home or office, were also some important factors while choosing a tax filing service provider.
