Gains from equity shares and mutual funds are taxed under the head ‘income from capital gains’. Individuals earning such income can file ITR-2 if they don’t have income from business or profession. However, if you have income/loss from intraday or F&O transactions or any other business, you should show it under the head ‘income from business and profession’ and file ITR-3. No need to choose the ITR form while filing returns on ClearTax. It automatically gets selected as per your financial details.
ClearTax has partnered with brokers like Paytm Money, Groww, 5Paisa, CAMS, Zerodha, Upstox, Kfintech, Sharekhan, ICICI direct, etc. You can upload the capital gains statement from all these brokers, and the ClearTax platform will auto calculate your taxes.
You have to add the previous year’s losses/depreciation on ClearTax. Then previous year’s loss is automatically brought forward and adjusted with the current year’s income as per the Income Tax rules.
You can add all types of income while filing through Cleartax. For example, income from salary, income from business or a profession, rental income, gains or losses from equity and debt mutual funds, lottery winnings, interest income, dividends, commissions, etc.
