ITR-1 (Sahaj) Filing

ITR, or Income Tax Return, is a crucial document in which taxpayers report their income and applicable taxes to the income tax department. The Income Tax Act of 1961 outlines all the ITR forms and their procedures. Among these forms, ITR-1, often referred to as Sahaj, holds particular significance. ITR-1 (Sahaj) is designed for individuals with an income of up to Rs.50 lakhs, making it applicable to most salaried individuals.

An Income Tax Return (ITR) is a document used by taxpayers to report details about their income earned and the corresponding tax liability to the income tax department. It serves as a formal declaration of an individual or entity’s financial information, ensuring transparency and compliance with tax regulations.

The ITR landscape includes seven different forms: ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-3, ITR-4, ITR-5, ITR-6, and ITR-7. Each taxpayer is required to file their ITR on or before the specified due date. The choice of ITR form depends on factors such as the sources of income, the amount of income earned, and the taxpayer’s category, which can include individuals, HUFs (Hindu Undivided Families), companies, and more.

The ITR-1 Sahaj Form, as its name implies, serves as a simplified means for individual taxpayers to file their income tax returns. This form is specifically tailored for resident individuals in India whose total income falls below the Rs. 50 Lakhs threshold and originates from the following sources:

  • Income from Salary or Pension
  • Income from a Single House Property
  • Income from Other Sources

The ITR-1 Form simplifies the procedure for eligible individuals to disclose their income tax information, offering a convenient and effective approach to fulfilling their tax obligations.

ITR-1 is applicable to Resident Individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • Income Threshold: The individual’s total income for the financial year must not exceed Rs. 50 lakh.
  • Permissible Income Sources: ITR-1 is suitable for individuals whose income comes from the following sources:
  • Salary
  • Income from a single-house property
  • Family pension income
  • Agricultural income (up to Rs. 5,000)
  • Other sources include:
  • Interest from Savings Accounts
  • Interest from Deposits (Bank / Post Office / Cooperative Society)
  • Interest from Income Tax Refund
  • Interest received on Enhanced Compensation
  • Any other Interest Income
  • Family Pension
  • Clubbing of Income: Combining income with a spouse’s or a minor’s income is allowed only if the source of income falls within the specified limits mentioned above.

The following categories of individuals are not eligible to file ITR-1:

  • Resident Not Ordinarily Resident (RNOR) and Non-Resident Indian (NRI) individuals
  • Those with a total income exceeding ₹ 50 lakh
  • Individuals with agricultural income surpassing ₹ 5,000
  • Individuals with income derived from activities like lottery, racehorses, legal gambling, etc.

  • Individuals with deferred income tax on Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) received from an eligible start-up employer
  • Individuals who own and generate income from more than one house property
  • Individuals who do not meet the eligibility criteria outlined for ITR-1 filing.

The due date for filing ITR-1 typically falls on July 31st of each assessment year. It’s crucial to meet this deadline to ensure that your income tax return is filed on time and in compliance with tax regulations.

While ITR Form 1 may seem straightforward, it requires careful attention during the filling process. ITR Form 1 is organized into five distinct parts and two schedules to ensure clarity. These segments include:

Part A: General Information

  • Personal details such as name, PAN number, age, gender, and date of birth.
  • Ward and assessing officer details (if known).
  • Communication address, contact number, city, and state.
  • Filing date and Aadhaar details.

Part B: Gross Total Income

  • Information on gross total income, including earnings from salary, property, and other sources.

Part C: Deductions and Total Taxable Income

  • Details related to deductions under sections 80C, 80D, 80U, and 80G.

Part D: Computation of Tax Payable

  • Rows covering tax computation, status, rebates, post-rebate taxes, TDS claims, etc.
  • D20 for bank account details, including account number, bank name, IFSC code, and account type, with an option to specify the account for refund, if applicable.

Part E: Other Information

  • Various additional details as required by the tax authorities.

Additionally, the form comprises two schedules:

  • Schedule IT
  • Schedule TDS & TCS
  • The final step in the process involves the verification of the information provided.

ITR (Income Tax Return) forms are attachment-less forms. This means that taxpayers are not required to attach any documents.

However, taxpayers should retain the following documents for their records and be prepared to produce them before tax authorities if requested, particularly in situations like assessments or inquiries.

  • Form 16: Provided by all your employers for the relevant financial year.
  • Form 26AS: Ensure that the TDS details in Form 16 match those in Part A of Form 26AS.
  • Receipts: Retain receipts for exemptions or deductions (e.g., HRA allowance or Section 80C/80D deductions) not submitted to your employer on time to claim them directly on your income tax return.
  • PAN Card: Your Permanent Account Number (PAN) card is essential for identification.
  • Bank Investment Certificates: Details of interest earned from bank accounts, such as bank passbooks or fixed deposit certificates.

The ITR1 form comprises several sections, each requiring specific information for accurate completion.

  • Part A: This section captures personal information, including PAN number, age, gender, address, and communication details.
  • Part B: Information on gross total income, including earnings from salary, property, and other sources.
  • Part C: Details related to deductions under sections 80C, 80D, 80U, and 80G.
  • Part D: Tax computation, status, rebates, post-rebate taxes, TDS claims, and bank account details.

The ITR-1 form excludes certain categories of income, including:

  • Profits and Gains from Business or Profession
  • Income from More than One House Property
  • Capital Gains (Short-term or Long-term)

Specific Other Sources of Income:

  • Income from owning and maintaining racehorses
  • Winnings from lotteries
  • Income subject to special rates under Section 115BBDA or Section 115BBE
  • Income is meant to be distributed as per the regulations of section 5A

Late filing of income tax returns can result in various penalties, depending on your total income.

  • Individuals with a total income exceeding Rs 5 lakh may face a penalty of Rs 5,000, while those with income below this threshold may incur a reduced penalty of Rs 1,000.
  • Additionally, if you owe taxes and fail to file the return by the due date, you will be liable for additional interest at a rate of 1% per month until you submit the return.
  • In more severe cases, penalties can be imposed for underreporting or misreporting of income. Underreporting may lead to penalties of up to 50% of the tax underreported, while misreporting can result in penalties of up to 200% of the misreported tax amount.
  • Furthermore, repeated failure to file tax returns despite reminders from tax authorities may lead to prosecution procedures. This could result in imprisonment ranging from three months to seven years, depending on the outstanding tax liabilities.

It is crucial to file your tax returns promptly and accurately to avoid these legal and financial consequences.
