You can file your Income Tax return free on the e-filing website of the Income Tax Department. You can also choose one of the several tax filing portals to e-file your taxes for a fee.

For salaried employees, when E-Filing Income Tax returns, you need accurate information on income, deduction and taxes you have paid. Here is a checklist for you when e-Filing your Income Tax returns.

- Form 16: This is the most important document which your employee will provide you.

- Decide on the suitable ITR form: If you are a salaried employee and do not have income from some of the sources mentioned above, you have to fill up ITR-1 when E-Filing your taxes.

- Form 26 AS: Form 26AS is a consolidated record of the various taxes deducted from your income and deposited with the Government. Form 26AS can be downloaded through netbanking if PAN is mapped to that particular account.

- Savings Bank Account and FD interest: Keep the following documents ready.

- Bank statement or passbook for interest on your savings account.

- Interest certificates or TDS certificates from banks and Post offices

- Details of bank accounts and IFSC codes: You also need to keep ready details of all your bank accounts and IFSC codes because you need to list them in the ITR form.
