Why you need to pay Advance tax before 15th March?

Advance tax is the payment of income tax which is paid in advance. Instead of paying in a lump sum at the end of the year, it is paid in advance. It is paid in four installments as per the prescribed due dates. The income tax department prescribes due dates for advance tax payment. Advance tax is payable only on estimate basis. While computing liability for advance tax, income-tax calculated on the current income estimated by the assessee shall be reduced by TDS deducted / TCS collected, MAT /AMT credit, relief under tax-treaty. After making payment of first/second installment of advance tax, the assessee can revise the remaining installments of advance tax in accordance with his revised estimate of current income and pay tax accordingly. Advance tax is based on the principle of “pay as you earn”. It is collected even before the income tax becomes payable and the installments are payable during the financial year itself. Advance tax receipts help the government to receive a constant flow of tax receipts throughout the year so that the expenses can be incurred rather tha receiving all the tax payments at the end of the year.
