Now calculate Income Tax Return with Tally.ERP9: New upcoming feature

Tally is changing at a very fast pace. Newer and newer features are being introduced. Infact Tally had made a roadmap of development. According to Tally road map new features are being added in Tally in every series Tally is releasing. Series A (which is the current series), Series B and Series C are the three major division of Tally.ERP 9 road map. Every series would have three releases.
Series A has given us many exciting features like remote login, sms integration, and Job portal integration etc. In the month of December release 3.0 of Tally.ERP9 which would be the last release of Series A is on the cards. It has new exciting features which i would share with ApniTally readers. Out of So many features one feature which excites me very much is of Income Tax calculation.

I think after this feature Tally would become a complete business package for a small business entity (although it is still a complete package.). After this feature, any business would need just Tally and nothing else. After VAT, TDS, Service Tax and other statutory requirements i think this would be the last statutory which was left earlier.

Series a would include Income Tax calculation for Individual and later in Series B comprehensive tool would come for corporates. According to Tally,

"This exciting feature makes it possible to generate the income tax computation sheet and IT Returns and mail it to employees, In addition, it will provide quarterly and yearly returns. With the Income Tax feature, calculating tax and submitting returns are made easy for both the organisation as well as the employee."

Income Tax rules would be modified from Time to time as changed by Govt. Of India and automatically updated.
The returns would be calculated automatically.
All all form like 16, 16A, 12BA would be provided with quarterly and Half yearly forms with e formats would be provided.
More over these can be manually over ridden by users at will.

It is surly going to ease the life of every businessman by simplifying the returns.
Some other hot features would be discussed on later posts. So visiting and keep watching. Readers can let me know their feedback on usefulness of this feature.

What Next : After activating your Free copy of Tally.ERP 9

Almost 600 users of ApniTally has activated and tried Free Tally per month. They have used it for various purposes. I hope their purpose of using has been fulfilled by now. All the users who have activated their Tally.ERP9 before three or more months, their Tally would have been expired till date. This post is to help those people. As all good things have to come to an end this is no exception.

Now question is what is the next step?
The answer is not that simple but let is try to make it simple. The answer depends on the purpose of activation. If the reason reason of activation was just to take free things and nothing more then i would say that thanks buddy for investing your time and energy to see one of the worlds best yet simplest software.
If the reason of activation was to work in original Tally.ERP9 software and gain some hands on experience then i hope it would have been fulfilled. If still some more time is needed then either take another machine and some other email id and again activate the licence as same thing can not be done on same machine.
If the reason of activation was to test the software before buying it then i think that purpose would have been fulfilled by this time. If Tally is great on your expectations then next logical step is to Buy it via credit card from Tally's site. If still more time is needed then rental option of Tally is available. Another three months can be purchased by just paying Rs.450/- only.

Here few points are worth considering:
First: One machine can be used for only once. You cannot use same machine just by activating by another email id.
Second: that machine can only activate original Tally, no more activations on that machine.
Third: the last date to activate is Dec1, 2010. After that code would be deactivated. so do activations if any before this date.
