As per the nature of taxes, you earn your income first and then pay taxes. However, in case of advance taxes, you pay your estimated tax liability before the end of a financial year. That said, you are eligible to pay advance tax only if you receive income from more sources other than your salary. These could include another profession, side-business, capital gain, fixed deposit interest, lottery, rent, etc. Also, advance tax is payable only when the overall tax liability should be more than ₹10,000.
