Advance tax first instalment payment: Taxpayers are required to pay advance tax in four quarterly payments between June 15 and March 15 of the financial year.

Paying income tax in installments throughout the year rather than paying it all at once at the end of the year is advance tax. The first instalment of advance tax payment for this fiscal year is June 15, 2024. Those with a net income tax liability of more than 10,000 in any financial year are obligated to make advance tax payments. This is the estimated tax amount minus the TDS within the financial year. Individuals must make four quarterly payments to prevent incurring penal interest as per the Income Tax Act, 1961.
