The e-pay tax provision has been enabled on the income tax e-filing portal for taxpayers. The income tax payment can be done with the help of debit/credit cards, pay-at-bank counters, net banking facilities, UPI, and RTGS /NEFT. Currently, there are a few authorised banks available for the choice of e-pay tax, like Federal Bank, Bank of India, and Kotak Mahindra Bank. It should be noted that only Kotak Mahindra Bank Payment Gateway offers the choice of tax payment via apps like Gpay and Amazon. The Income Tax Department has taken several steps in the past several years towards making sure that the filing process of Income Tax Return (ITR) becomes simpler.
