Frequently Asked Questions

What is e Filing of income tax return (ITR)?

Individuals, except senior citizens, have to mandatorily file the ITR through the online mode which is also known as electronic filing, i.e. e-filing of the income tax return.
An income tax return is a form that a person is required to submit to the Income Tax Department. It contains information related to individual's income and taxes paid, starting from 1st April to 31st March of the financial year. There are seven ITR forms prescribed by the Income Tax Department according to the amount of income, income source and the category to which the taxpayer belongs.

E-filing of the income tax return can be done through Clear’s e-filing utility in a smooth and simple manner. Clear is a government-authorised portal to carry out e-filing of the returns and hence 100% authenticity and security is maintained.

You can file your income tax returns online, either on the income tax department's website or with us at www.cleartax.in. Income tax filing or e-filing is made easy on Cleartax. You can e-file your returns in just 3 minutes without any manual effort.

Also, note that the due date to e-file your income tax returns for the assessment year 2022-23 is on or before 31st July 2022.

My company deducts TDS. Do I still have to file my ITR?

Yes, deducting TDS and filing a tax return are two separate legal compliances. Income tax should be paid on your taxable income as per the provisions of the Income Tax Act. Whereas, you file a tax return to show that you've paid all the tax you needed to pay. The income tax return is also a very useful document when it comes to applying for a loan or visa.

Which income tax return should I select for e Filing?

There are seven forms - ITR 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 notified by the government for different categories of taxpayers. ITR-1 to ITR-4 applies to individuals and HUFs. They can choose the appropriate ITR form based on the income earned and source of income. ITR-5 applies to partnership firms, LLPs, AOP (Association of Persons), BoI (Body of Individuals), Artificial Juridical Person (AJP), Estate of deceased, Estate of insolvent, Business trust and investment fund. All the companies should file ITR-6. It does not apply to companies claiming exemption from income from property held for charitable or religious purposes. Such companies should file ITR-7. If you are e-filing with ClearTax, we automatically decide on the correct income tax return form.

What is ITR-V?

ITR-V is a 1-page document that you receive after e-filing your income tax return and where e-verification is pending. You can verify your income tax return through offline or online mode. There are various methods of online verification. However, to verify your return offline, you must print, sign and send the ITR-V to the Income Tax Department within 120 days from e-filing your tax return.

Is it necessary to attach any documents along with the return of income?

ITR return forms are attachment-less forms and, hence, the taxpayer is not required to attach any document (like proof of investment, TDS certificates, etc.) along with the return of income (whether filed manually or filed electronically). However, these documents should be retained by the taxpayer and should be produced before the tax authorities when demanded in situations like assessment, inquiry, etc.

Can I file ITR-1 with exempt agricultural income?

You can file ITR 1 if the agricultural income is up to Rs 5,000. For agricultural income exceeding Rs 5,000, you have to file ITR 2. To know about ITR 2 .Click here.
