  1. Excellent work. Please keep doing

  2. If we registered on Income tax side but income is less than exemption limit then to file ITR is mandatory ?

  3. no excess format provided for download

  4. @ Raja babu

    Please let me confirm if this year itr-1 scope is reduced ?
    As i am a salaried person, i used to fill itr-1 every year and i am having deductions/exemptions like child education (1200 per child), Conveyance (800 per month), washing,driver etc given by employer under the law of income tax deptt. As this is not coming in the head "Income under the head -salary" in my form-16, upto now i did not show this in exempt details in itr-1. But now i want to confirm whether all this along with interest income (10000 from savings bank) and agricultural income and lic tax free maturity etc. to be shown and whether all this is to be filled in itr-2 instead of itr-1.

    plz reply...


    1. Yes , you are correct .You can not file itr-1 ,if exempted income is more than 5000/- .

      However ,many professional have view that for salary component ,above exemption limit is not applicable ,so you can still use itr-1.

      Further you should show lic receipt , dividend income , ppf interest etc should be shown in exempted income .

      So as per strict rule you should go far ITR-2

  5. @ Raja babu

    Thanx for prompt reply...so as per u, i should fill itr-2 and show savings bank interest (exempted upto 10000.00) also along with other exempt income in salary plus lic etc...

    one more query...should i sum all exemptions and total should be shown or is there any provision of breakup showing in itr-2

    1. bank interest is not covered under exemption ,it is a deduction u/s 80TTA.

      Further in itr 2 check exempted income schedule and fill details accordingly

  6. For a PERSON having income from SALARY & PROF Fee Income it is ITR 1V.Correct?
    Can such an individual(not having to maintain accounts) claim deduction from Prof Income for expenses such as Conveyance,Life Insurance etc?
