As per the advance tax method, tax liability is distributed in instalments within the same financial year. Therefore, an estimated tax must be paid in instalments throughout the relevant financial year. If a taxpayer is paying advance tax and the amount of tax paid by the taxpayer is more than the estimated tax liability, then, in that case, the taxpayer can claim tax refund for the extra tax that he/she has paid to the Government.
