ITR Forms- LATEST UPDATE ON INCOME TAX RETURN FORMS FOR FY 2020-21

Identifying the ITR form for the specific income of the taxpayer was a very important and technical task when all ITRs were filed in physical mode. However, in today's technological age, this task is done by software, and no one needs to apply that expertise in their daily lives.

However, it is critical to understand ITR forms because they are the first step in filing an ITR. If you are unfamiliar with these forms, there is no need to worry because this article will explain the basics of ITR forms in simple and understandable language.

What is ITR?

The fundamental question is that it is a form or structure by which a person can tell the government and the government of his income sources how much they get money to support their livelihoods. It is a very simple thing. Certainly, it is a method for the government to obtain revenue in the form of taxes.

What are ITR forms?

When everyone started filling out their ITRs in the same format, the government ran into trouble organizing the data of different taxpayers in its records. As a result, the government created the form system as a system in which a specific form is defined for a specific type of taxpaye0072 based on the type of revenue.

Types of ITR form:

The government has defined seven different types of ITR forms, which are listed below.

SAHAJ or ITR-1:

Individuals residing in India who earn less than or equal to Rs.50 lakhs from salary/pension, other sources, and any one house property.

ITR-2:

  • Individuals who earn more than Rs.50 lakhs from all sources covered by the ITR-1, including capital gains, multiple residential properties, international income, and foreign assets.
  • An individual who earns money as a director of a firm and lives in the area.
  • Unlisted equity shares are held by a resident.

ITR-3:

A resident individual with income from a business or profession, as a partner in a firm, or any presumptive income of more than Rs.50 lakh, as defined in ITR-2.

ITR4:

Every income covered in ITR-1 presumptive income under salary/pension, other sources, and one dwelling property, when total income is greater than Rs.50 lakhs, must be reported on Form ITR-4.

ITR-5:

This form covers the income of any firm, LLP, AOPs, and BOIs.

ITR-6:

Income of companies that do not claim Section-11 exemption.

ITR7:

Persons/companies are covered by Sections 139 (4A), 139(4B), 139(4C), and 139(4D) of the Internal Revenue Code (4D).

The New Income Tax e-Filing Portal's Features:

The new e-filing portal for income tax was launched on 7 June 2021 by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT). The new 'www.incometax.gov.in' portal replaced the existing 'www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in' e-filing portal. Taxpayers will now have to use the new portal to file their income tax returns (ITRs) and complete all other tax-related tasks. The site is being renovated for the convenience of taxpayers, and it will now offer modern and smooth income tax return filing and other tax-related services.

New Income Tax e-Filing Portal

  • ITR Processing:

The new user-friendly interface will process a taxpayer's income tax return right away. Taxpayers will receive prompt refunds as a result of the quick processing of income tax forms.

  • ITR Preparation Software for Free:

The free ITR preparation software will assist taxpayers. ITR-1 and ITR-4 software are currently available both online and offline, whereas ITR-2 is only available online. ITR-3, ITR-5, ITR-6, and ITR-7 preparation software will be available soon. The software's interactive questions will make the e-filing process easier.

  • Call Center Services:

The new online portal is linked to a "new call centre" for quick response to customer inquiries. Furthermore, detailed FAQs, tutorials, videos, and chatbot/live agents address taxpayer concerns.

  • Interaction on a Single Dashboard:

A taxpayer can view all interactions, uploads, and pending actions on a single dashboard, along with the follow-up action.

  • Multiple Payment Options:

The new portal will provide a taxpayer with multiple payment options. These include RTGS/NEFT, credit card, UPI and net banking via a taxpayer's bank account. It will allow taxes to be paid easily. This facility will enable the income tax department to avoid difficulties for taxpayers to pay the first instalment of advance tax after 18 June 2021.

  • Mobile appliance:

A mobile app will then be launched with all of the key features of the new portal. At any time, the taxpayer has access to the app through a mobile network.

  • Pre-filled ITRs:

The new portal enables certain revenue data to be pre-filled.

It could be about salary, owning a home, business/profession, and so on. It also allows for detailed pre-filling of information such as salary income, interest, dividends, and capital gains. When the affected entities upload their TDS and SFT statements, the pre-filling will take place.

The Income Tax e-Filing Portal's Current Features:

The department built the income tax e-filing site, www.incometaxidiaefiling.gov.in, to facilitate e-filing services to taxpayers. Users file their income tax returns and other forms through the existing income tax e-filing facility. They can use the portal to complete the following things in addition to filing their income tax returns.

  • E-verify income tax returns.
  • View and respond to an outstanding income tax demand.
  • File audit reports and certificates.
  • View tax credit statement (Form 26AS).
  • View tax credit mismatch.
  • Request for refund re-issue.
  • Request for intimations.
  • Request for change of ITR particulars.
  • Link Aadhaar with PAN.
  • Lodge grievance online.
  • Respond to e-proceedings.
  • The portal is used by the income tax department to view and process uploaded income tax returns and other forms, send notices, collect responses from taxpayers, and convey final orders such as assessments, appeals, exemptions, and penalties.

Taxpayers have a lot of work to do:

  • Their Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) must be re-registered, as the old DSCs will not be moved due to security concerns.
  • They should change their user ID and mobile number in their profile's primary contacts.
  • If you haven't already, link your Aadhaar and pre-validate your bank account.
  • Higher security options reset e-Filing Vault.

Due to the country's crisis and pandemic scenario, the government has extended the deadlines for filing income tax returns and other deadlines.
