Yesterday my client asked me the question about benefits of filling income tax return.He was arguing, ” I am salaried employee and his income is less than Rs. 5 lakhs and TDS is already deducted. So there is no need to file income tax return.”I have explained some points to him which I have presented in this article. I hope it will help you to understand income tax return filling benefits.
7 benefits of filling income tax return:

Contribution to nation:
Your paid tax amount is contributed to government revenue and indirectly you are contributed to various schemes of government for helping poor and needy.
