Self assessment tax is just like income tax. such tax is paid by the assessee at the time of filing of his/her income tax return i.e. after completing the respective financial year like. if you are liable to pay tax of 6500 for the financial year 01/04/2014-31/03/2015. but you have paid the tax on 20/05/2015 than such tax is known as self assessment tax.

SELF ASSESSMENT TAX ------------------- The system under which the taxpayer is required to declare his taxable income on his own i.e. based on his computation and assessment deposits the tax due with the government is called Self Assessment tax. Simply put, if tax related to previous year 2013-2014 is paid in April 2014 then it is called self assessment tax, on the other hand if the same is paid in January 2014 it is known as advance tax. As per Section 140A of the Income tax Act self-assessment tax is paid by the assessee on the assessed income after deducting TDS (Tax deducted at source) and advance tax but before the filing of income tax returns. In case Self Assessment tax is not in full the amount so paid by the assessee shall be first adjusted towards interest payable, if any, and the balance towards tax. **The self assessment tax to be paid must be accompanied by a challan No/ITNS 280 and can be paid at either an authorized bank or through online mode.**

Dear Kruthika, Self assessment tax is just like income tax. such tax is paid by the assessee at the time of filing of his/her income tax return i.e. after completing the respective financial year like. if you are liable to pay tax of 6500 for the financial year 01/04/2014-31/03/2015. but you have paid the tax on 20/05/2015 than such tax is known as self assessment tax. In other words. any tax which is paid by the assessee other than advance tax and demand than such tax is known as self assessment tax as per income tax act 1961.
