The main desire of the project “TAX MANAGER” is to provide online services of paying tax
at anyplace from their mobile and availability of soft copy of tax documents of each
individual tax payer if accidentally any documents is lost.
User can do comparison between his/her previous and recent tax value from this mobile
application in a graphical representation according to their requirements. Due to that
graphical view user can read the data in a readable form without any difficulties. In short this
mobile application saves the time of taxpayer and chartered account (CA) and user can also
check the notification related tax by doing login or sign in.

Income Tax Act was first introduced in 1960. With passage of time India has eradicate
multiples taxes and introduced new ones. Mainly taxes are two types. Direct tax which is
directly paid by you such as wealth tax, corporate tax etc. Indirect tax includes VAT, service
tax, sales tax etc.
In our project we are developing a system that helps the user to manage their tax. This system
provides convenient way to understand tax criteria (more easy way to learn that tax files). For
that purpose, we create a mobile application which is helpful to the user to calculate every
year BALANCE SHEET and other stuff. Using this application user can also compare their
previous tax data with the help of graphical view representation.
1.1 Problem Summary
In traditional tax system user can face some difficulty while paying tax. He/she can’t
understand the tax documents in a readable form. When the taxpayer wants to see their tax
value graph they have to read the whole tax document and then also he/she cannot understand
properly. So they have to personally meet to CA for knowing that problem.
The process of comparing tax values is time consuming and it is also difficult to personally
meet every time CA for gaining important guidelines related to tax.
1.2 Aim and Objective of Work
The aim of our application “TAX MANAGER” is to provide different services like at
one place user can access their own tax data which makes easy for the user has they do
not have to check every time tax files and to visit CA. User can manage that data with
1.3 Problem Specification
In traditional tax system the user does not get meaningful data from the tax file. They didn’t
also compare data with each other. That process is more time consuming for CA and user
also. So our system gets all data and process on that data and make that data user friendly.
Recently, if the user’s tax documents are lost then he/she personally meet to CA for
collecting that documents but using this application copies of that documents are retrieved
from their respective CA in the form of soft copy with the help of this mobile application.
