How much for an income tax refund?
In November, my accountant told me I would have to pay Rs. 40,000 in order to get back a Rs. 80,000 income tax refund. Really? Half of what is owed to me goes to some guy in a Kolkata income tax office? I have paid such bribes in the past but this year, perhaps inspired by ********** Hazare and Lokpal, I refused.
Who knows what the outcome will be but this kind of thing has to be stopped. It's MY money. It's a government office. They are supposed to do their job and give me what is rightfully mine.
