    There are various portals through which you can file your return and pay taxes online.

    However, I would like to share with you the fact that if your income is less than Rs. 4 Lakhs you are not required to pay any tax if you make the right investments.

    This can be explained with the help of an example:-

    If your income is Rs. 4 Lakhs, you are allowed to claim deduction of Rs. 1.5 Lakhs for Investments made under Section 80C

    The Balance Taxable income would be Rs. 2.5 Lakhs. No Tax is levied for taxable income below 2.5 Lakhs. Refer:

    Therefore, in your case - if you act wisely - all taxes can be legally saved.
