Can we make payment of taxes while filing GSTR 9 | Annual Return , Do we need to make payment while filing GSTR 9 | Annual Return or what if while filing Annual Return, it is discovered that we have shown less tax liability in GSTR-3B or have taken excess credit in GSTR-3B due which now our tax liability is actually more than tax paid.
Ans : The Answer to this is no. We cannot make payment of taxes while filing GSTR 9 | Annual Return. Declaring additional turnover/Taxes while filing GSTR 9 or Annual Return would simply mean informing proper officer on voluntary basis that you have not paid tax. In such cases one need to file FORM GST DRC-03 ( for making payment of taxes and interest ) and the proper officer shall issue an acknowledgement, accepting the payment made by the said person in FORM GST DRC–04.
