Why freelancers must pay taxes

Full Time Freelancers are found in every sphere. Of those few make real good business while other strive. Failure rate in freelancing is pretty, i suppose more than 90%. Freelancing demands for over promise and over delivery.
Majority of freelancers do not fall in tax bracket, paying taxes and then filling return and that too claiming 100% return looks just idiotic task. But hold a minute, its not that way. Chose to pay advance tax whether your income is taxable or not.
When you pay advance tax, its like lending the money for the use of expenditure. Government will use this money till you file and claim return. Of course there is a set deadline to file income tax return. If your income is not taxable you can claim for 100% refund. This way you will contribute to national development.
In addition, government will also recognize you as responsible person. If you are a full time freelancer ITR is a document that shows you work, it works same like salary slip does. ITR also required when you go buy a house on EMI or any other household item or may be when you need a study loan for your kids, ITR will prove truly helpful.
If you are beginner in freelancing or someone who is still waiting to next year act now, pay your taxes and make the route to your future.

Airplane dream never realized and when I joined a company I was told we want to be number 1. I didn't nodded even, just learnt CEO want to take company to No. 1 position, somewhere deep down I took that as a challenge. The inner me knows I have an opportunity to invest resources and grow. I am in habit of enjoying my task so no big deal, I know I can try my best to work my way, results are not in my hands. What I can do is called work. And being a physics student i know when we multiply force to distance we get work done. That work could be hilarious, why not, laughing gas is there a result of work done by …
