Updated on :  

08 min read.

If you have sold any of your mutual fund investments and/or stocks and are filing your taxes with Capital Gains this year, you can try it out yourself.

The manual process of filling all the capital gains details on other platforms makes the return filing process cumbersome and laborious. At the same time, ClearTax allows you to do it instantly without any hassles.

ClearTax has integrated with all top brokerages in the country like Paytm Money, 5Paisa, ICICI Direct, Groww, etc., to simplify capital gains calculations. If you have transacted with stocks or mutual funds in the last financial year, log in now to ClearTax and experience revolutionary technology that calculates your taxes in seconds.

Step 1: Go to www.cleartax.in link. To start with income tax return filing, click on the ‘Get Started’ button.

Step 2: Now click on the ‘Try Now’ button to file ITR and login to your account.

Step 3: After logging in, the first step is to link your PAN by entering your PAN and Date of Birth. Complete OTP verification using ‘IT Department registered mobile number’ or ‘Aadhaar registered mobile number’. 

Step 4: Enter OTP received on your mobile number.

Step 5:  After linking your PAN, you can have your personal and salary details auto-filled. All you have to do is an OTP verification to prefill the information. So click on the ‘Proceed’ button to do an OTP verification.

Note: If you skip the pre-fill option, you have to manually enter the details.

Step 6: After successful OTP verification, start filling in your other income details. You can capture your capital gains details in seconds, just go to the ‘Income Sources’ and click to add capital gains details as shown on the screen.

Step 7: It will take you to the ‘Income from Capital Gains’ page where you can click on the ‘Paytm Money’ icon.

You will now be redirected to a new tab where you can log in to your broker’s account. After successful login, all your capital gains details will be fetched automatically.

That’s how you can fill up thousands of capital gains details automatically in a single click through the ClearTax platform. 

You will be able to see a summary of capital gains and losses. Any intraday trading transactions during the year will be captured automatically as business income under the ‘Speculative Income’ section.

You can also see all the individual transactions are automatically captured and grouped into long-term and short-term capital gains. If you want to make any changes, you can edit or delete them.

In this way, you can capture the capital gains transactions on ClearTax for return filing.

Which ITR form applies to Paytm Money users (for both long-term investors and traders)?

Income from shares and mutual funds falls under the capital gains head. Individuals having capital gains or losses from shares and mutual funds during the year can file ITR-2.

Hence, individuals having capital gains and other income (other than business income) should file ITR-2, and others should file ITR-3. If you file your ITR through ClearTax, there is no need to choose the ITR form. It will automatically get selected as per your financial details entered.
