Legal Content Writer/ Editor Resource Person


I am working as a freelancer with a reputed institution and as they pay me on work done basis every month and they deduct 10 percent from my payment every month by way of professional tax. But I am not having texable income and hence would like to claim back this amount. So please direct me as to in which form should I submit my IT return and what is the due date by which I should file this return and claim refund.

Thanks and Regards,
