Your income tax return cannot be submitted to the Income Tax Department unless you have paid tax dues in full. Sometimes, you may see tax payable at the time of filing your return. This tax amount must be paid online, so that return is successfully e-filed afterward. Usually, interest under section 234B and 234C will also have to be paid along with your tax due, if you are paying tax after 31st March.
