Cleartax.in – a tax filing portal has made tax filing for women totally free. Women all over India can now file their tax returns for free, sitting at home at www.cleartax.in . Women will have free access to its very user friendly tax filing website till July 26, 2012. The ClearTax platform is an easy to use to file one’s tax returns. The offer is an initiative by the company to invite women to take ownership of their finances.
Cleartax observed that more men than women e-filed online with them and their team learnt that in aggregate, women spent significantly less time paying attention to tax planning and personal finance compared with men. Jagoinvestor had done an article on Women & Personal Finance which revealed how 88% or more of urban women (who are well educated and live in big cities) have Zero or very less personal finance knowledge. Most of the tax filing work is handled by their father or husband and they generally refrain from any taxation related work.
You can spread a word about this into your office and share it with all the women employees, you can also use this opportunity to file taxes online for your wife, sister, mother or any female relative.
