Federal Bank has come out with a new initiative for its customers to e file their income tax returns easily. For this, the Bank has launched a new portal service (http://www.federalbank.co.in/clear-tax). Customers can login to this portal and upload their Form No.16. The portal will capture details from Form No.16 and pre-populate it. Only a few remaining fields are to be filled in by the customer. The portal can also be used by customers who are not having Form No.16. Non Federal Bank customers can also make use of this facility.
This portal will complete the e filing and instantly generate the acknowledgement number. The service is free of charges. The portal also gives facility to call for services of the Chartered Accountants at a nominal fee. This service is readily available.
Announcing this service, Shri Babu K A, Head – Digital Banking said “E filing service is yet another digital offering from Federal Bank that enhances customer convenience. Customers can now easily and confidently file their returns through this simple portal. Customers will find it highly useful as the portal will capture and pre-populate details available in Form No.16, ensuring accuracy and avoiding data entry. We are happy to launch this service this month when most people file their returns”
