    This query is for AY2017-18

    My mom is a senior citizen who has income ONLY from 'Family Pension' and 'FD Interest'. The total income (chargeable under 'Income from other sources') for the current FY2016-17 would come around 16lkh.

    My query is
    To avoid the burden of paying tax at the last month (March 2017), my mom like to pay tax in installments rather than as one time bulk amount. If so shall i pay those installments as 'Advance tax' or 'Self assessment tax'? Planning to pay tax as 4 or 5 installments this year.

    Pay it as self assessment tax, provisions of advance tax are not applicable. If you use the wrong code then it might raise some doubts ,as advance tax is applicable on senior citizen if they have income from business or profession. AO might think that the classification of income is wrong.
