ITR filing must be done by individuals and businesses to give information about their earnings to the government. ITR can be filed online or offline, as per the individual’s convenience. The Income tax is filed depending on the income slab of the individual or the business concerned. Income Tax Return (ITR) is a form that contains details pertaining to an individual’s income and the respective taxes to be paid in the given financial year. It is filed with the Income Tax Department of India. The concept behind Income Tax is quite vast and complicated. It is quite procedural and involves several legal principles. The computation of ITR is best done by professionals who have in-depth knowledge of taxation. They have to ensure that the filing is done properly, failing which the client would end up paying more than required. Sometimes, there are instances wherein a taxpayer pays taxes in excess for a given assessment year. In such cases, the excess amount is refunded to the taxpayer. Alternatively, one may also pay less than what ought to have been paid and under such circumstances, the due has to be paid. The ITR varies from ITR1 to ITR7 depending upon the type of income. Few ITR forms are more descriptive than the others wherein additional disclosures are required, such as a balance sheet and a profit and loss statement information. It is also essential to hold the mandatory documents while attempting to file the ITR. ITR can now be filed online as well through the e-filing portal. The filing can be accomplished by hiring a professional or can be done by self by creating a profile and registering on the income tax department website. The deadline to file ITR is July 31st of every year. It is necessary to have Form 16, other income details, all bank account numbers, IFSC codes, and personal details in place before proceeding.
