  32. Dear Sir, Do you advise about GST rules/registration also? I am an Mechanical engineer and have retired from a public sector company as GM in March,2010. From 2012 to 2015 I had worked as Technical consultant to a Pvt Ltd company operating from SEZ at Bangalore which had their customer’s at Europe. In 2013 my Income rose just more than 10 lakhs and had to register for Service Tax.. The income was less than 10 lakhs in 2014 and ultimately stopped working as Tech advisor from Oct 2015. Since I didn’t get any offer for consultancy work I requested for surrender of my ST registration in Oct 2016. Now I have been re-hired by SEZ company for 3 months and my income for this period would be Rs 1.2 lakhs(Total) and even if they renew my contract as freelancer the income is not going to reach Rs.10 lakhs. The nature of advise is to provide technical clarifications to the employees of the company mostly engineers on technical subject related to generation of technical documents /concept to manufacture Aero engine parts/tools etc. and teach on manufacturing engineering. Could you kindly advise me in above scenario is it obligatory to get GST registration?

    As I am working as HR Consultant on “Contract” in the organization from June 2017 to March 2018 with lump sum pay of Rs. 100000/- & TDS @ 10% deducted every month

    but earlier 2 months i.e. April & May 2017 I have worked as regular employee hence kindly advise on the same ….

    1.Which ITR to used for filling returns for fy 2018-19?
    2.If my income falls under sec. 194 J then I will get quarterly Form 16A
    – then how to save my income tax under what expenses heads?(any limit under each head) at the end of the year
    – or could you suggest any way out to reduce /save around Rs.10000/- TDS deduction per month.

        Hence requested you to suggest any ways & means of save my tax or get maximum refund on submission of any investment proofs, or any expenses details.

        Best Regards…Pankaj

            Ok fine I am good with the TDS @ 10% flat , but the issue here is I will get Form 16A with only income but no exemptions shown like salaried employee.

            Also what are the list of expenses heads which is valid & same is acceptable under IT act ??

            Hope not bothering you much.. 🙂

  36. Hello Basavaraj Tonagatti,
    This is Kabir. Thank you for the informative post and the replies to each comment. We all appreciate it very much. I have a query regarding my taxation. I’ve been getting different opinions from a lot of people. Please help me make a sense of my situation.

    FY 2016/2017: Freelance Income from Web Dev 4.8L approx
    Capital gains: INR 20, yep just 20
    So is it ITR 3 for me or can I take a leap of faith with ITR 4 Sugam? Actually it’s 17 Rs something 🙂

    FY 2017/2018: In case I decide pay advance tax
    Freelance will be about 6.5L-7L I guess
    Capital Loss: 80K
    Can I avail ITR 4 Sugam next year since I don’t have any Capital gains.

    Thanks again for the post and taking out time to go through this!
    Cheers!

    Reply
    • Just a quick update, a friend suggested me to file under ITR 3 for profession and capital gains. He said I should use #53, No account case and pay 50% for profession and list 18rs as capital gains under appropriate section.

  37. HI Under ITR 2, Asset Liability section can you confirm if the amount of insurance premium needs to be added for money back policy or even term insurance. Do we need to declare the premium paid for all years put together till now or for the last FY only
    Also, do we show PPF deposit over last years in this as well under Asset liability
    and do we reflect the liability of loan with interest due for next few years as well.

        2)I have a FD from past 2 yrs which gives me an interest of 17, 200 and I did declared form 15 G in the bank. This rightly pops in details of tax deducted from other sources of income section (on tax details tab) with tax deducted being zero.Do I again need to mention the same in exempt income on taxes paid and verification tab?

  60. Dear Sir,

    In FY 2014-15, I had loss about 5 lakhs from intraday share trading and less than 1 lakh income from Salary + Bank Interest. I filled ITR4 form against which I got IT notice under section 143(2) for Limited Scrutiny. I have submitted my proof of loss but this is pending from IT dept side.

    In the FY 2015-16, my total income is around Rs. 5 Lakhs including consulting fee under 194J. I filled the ITR4 for this year as well but I got Notice u/s 139(9) in absence of entries in balance sheet. I replied to notice with “Not Agree” citing reason that I have no consultancy firm and it is single job which I am doing and getting salary but under 194J. Further response from IT dept is still pending.

    Now in the FY 2016-17, my income which is around 7 lakhs, is again under 194J. So can fill ITR 4 now (ITR 4S in previous year)? In that form can I show total earning as 7 lakhs and some amount e.g. 1-2 lakhs as expenses for providing consultancy?
    Can the question arise that why you are showing expense when in last year ITR I have given explanation that I am not working as consultancy firm but kind of salaried employee??

    What best should I do with good intention?

    I work as Data processing, answering emails , calls and IT related work for an overseas client. Income directly comes to my Banks which about 13-14 lacs per annum. I am planning to use presumptive tax Section 44ADA for this year.

    1) So I understand I have to compute 50% say 7 lacs as my profit and pay according to the tax slab. I am aware no deductions like purchase , rent , internet etc is allowed but am i correct in thinking the usual deductions ie basic exempt limit of 1 lac plus 1.5 lacs (PPF or ELSS etc) is allowed. Which would further bring down my taxable income to 7 lacs less 2.5 lacs = 5.5 lacs please?

    2) What is the last date for tax please. I am confused when it says 15th March. Does that meany for financial year 2017-2018, I have to pay my tax by 15th March 2018? I will get to know my actual income only in the month of March 2018 ie when the last payment comes in. Am I getting it correct please?

        ?If a person adopts the presumptive taxation scheme of section 44AD, then is he liable to pay advance tax in respect of income from business covered under section 44AD?

        ANSWER
        ?Any person opting for the presumptive taxation scheme under section 44AD is liable to pay whole amount of advance tax on or before 15th March of the previous year. If he fails to pay the advance tax by 15th march of previous year, he shall be liable to pay interest as per section 234C.

        Note: Any amount paid by way of advance tax on or before 31st day of March shall also be treated as advance tax paid during the financial year ending on that day.

Some of the funds I switched to better performing funds while for some I had to redeem and then again invest in performing ones.

            All funds which have been redeemed are Growth Equity Mutual Funds and are well past one year which means LTCG and exempt from tax.

  67. I am pensioner working as employee in an organisation attached to the Delhi High Court, on year to year contractual basis on the orders of the Hon’ble High Court at a consolidated salary of Rs.35,000/- per month. The organization has issued Form No,16A for the tax deducted at 1% of the total income. I have, therefore, filed ITR 4 in the AY 2016-17. While calculating the income as contract employee I deducted a sum of Rs.1 lacs as Expenses from the total income for Travelling expenses,telphone, maintenance of computer etc. But no account has been maintained as I was told that I am not required to maintain books of accounts.
    The IT Department had intimated me that my return filed has been considered as defective as Part A B/s and Part B P&L has not been filled. I replied to them that it is a No account case and it was not required. But they have not accepted this reply and pointed out that I should get the defective Return set right within 15days

    Also, where in the ITR 3 should the salary from firm be mentioned, as I do not see any schedule for it to be mentioned, schedule IF mentiones share of profit and capital balance of partner but no salary from firm for partner.

    Thanks and Warm Regards 🙂

    • Joshi-Yes, you have to use ITR3. Regarding filling the form, if it is confusing you, then better take the help of tax expert of your area. I can’t explain all in this comment section.

  71. Hi,

    I have salary income, plus income from freelance work (less than 50 Lacs). I also have some long & short term gains from sale of shares. I wanted to take benefit of the presumptive scheme Sec 44ADA for the proceeds from my freelance work. Can I use ITR-4 to submit my returns?

    Is there a provision to show capital gains from shares in ITR-4 along with presumptive business income declaration and normal salary income?

    P.S: Thank you for answering questions for people and spreading knowledge. Much appreciated!

    Thanks

      • I did read your article properly, plus other posts as well. I see no reason for you to be condescending about it. All I wanted to know was if there is a way through which this can be done, by either treating capital gains income as income from other sources and clubbing it under normal tax slabs.

  72. Hi Basu, my wife has been working as a management consultant in a private sector diversified conglomerate since January 2017 on contract (as opposed to an employee with benefits like medical insurance pf etc) and has received a total sum which is less than 2 lakh for fy 2016. The company has been deducting TDS @ 10% and has issued form 16A.
    In addition, she also has interest income from fd.
    Should she file ITR 3 or 4 please? I understand that some professionals can claim presumptive taxation under 44ADA and hence the confusion between 3 or 4.

    Thanks for your lovely article.

    Last two assessment years, I was filing ITR 4 as I had a proprietory business.

    This assessment year, I also started a private limited company in 2016 June, where I am getting salary for being managing director as well as income in the form from the same company/business. Now which ITR shall I file for personal return – I am confused because I am getting salary as well as income from company business. Please advise.

      • Dear Basu,
        Thanks for your quick input.

        I also noticed somewhere it said that ITR3 can not be used for incomes from proprietor business. The confusion is that I still have proprietor business as well a private limited company.

    I am salaried employee. As per this year 26AS, I can see EPF amount that I had withdrawn and also the 10% tax deducted (I had withdrawn it before 5 year). My doubt is, shall I show it in ITR1 as income from other sources(B3)?

        Thanks for clearing the doubt.In that case it will be clubbed with my yearly salary income and then will I have to pay extra tax on top of that 10% all ready deducted on the EPF withdrawn amount as per the slab of income tax for 2017. Sir, Is my understanding correct sir?

  79. Hello Basu,

    I have couple of questions.

    1. My wife’s salary was revised from back date (Nov 2012) and she received it as Arrears in (Nov 2016). In order to claim relief under Sec 89, she will have to fill form 10E. In for 10E, there is a column for Previous Year(s) Income (before Arrears). In Previous Year(s) (ie from 2012-2016) she had capital gains and income from other sources as well Should these be included while filling form 10E? Or only the salary income for that year should be mentioned in that column

    2. We have opened a savings account for our daughter. Both of us (me and my wife) transfer Rs 10,000 in to her account which goes into a sweep-in FD. When I report my Daughters income, should I only take into account interest earned on the FD and Savings Account? or the money which we have transferred will also be treated as income for my daughter? Ideally, it should only be the interest income as the money which we are tranferring into her account is from our income which is already taxed. But I read somewhere that even the amount transferred will be treated as income. Please clarify

    1. Whether I can consider the 1 lakh rupees received from my father as gift and not include it as income so I can consider this as exempt income for gifts from relative.
    2. Is it required to show this 1 lakh as exempt income in others category or need not show that. My father is a pensioner and does not file IT so only am worried to show it in exempt income.

    Please clarify my point.

      2) You have to show it under exempt income.

    • Bhaskar-If there is any interest income from this, then you have to show that income under the head of “Income from Other Sources”. Regarding his repayment (in a case of you lend money without any interest), then you can ignore. If they raise the issue, then you have rights to show that when you lend the money and when you received (without any interest income).

    Dear Basavaraj ,
    I was impressed with your knowledge and the way you guide people. Please tell me about Schedule AL in ITR-2 FY 15-16. Are we supposed to reflect only assets acquired during the FY or total assets as on date. I mean for example I am dealing in MFs and invest about Rs 12 Lakhs per annum. As on todat I have a portfolio of about Rs 40 Lakhs. So what I am to show in Shares and securities? Rs 40 Lakhs or Rs 12 Lakhs invested in the FY?
    Please revert

        But then what is supposed to be shown in “security and shares ‘column. After all you have purchased shares through MFs at a certain cost during the year.This is very confusing. Needs further clarification. Like example I have purchased MF units worth Rs 12 L, build a PMS of Rs 25 Lakhs and further directly purchased equity shares worth 50000/- during FY 16-17. Do you mean to say that none of this is to be reflected in Asset & Liabilities “security and shares ‘column

        Reply
        • Nand-Taxation will come into picture when you liquidate and book profit/loss but not while holding.

          Reply
          • Dear Basavraj,

            I am referring to the Schedule Assets and Liabilities in ITR-2 for those with Total income above 50 Lakhs per annum. Maybe I missed out telling you that initially. Sorry for that.
            Now would your answer change or remain same

            I am explicitly referring to this schedule and my doubt was whether one needs to reflect the Total assets as on 31 Mar 17 at cost price or only the assets which have been procured in the FY 16-17.

            Rgds

            Nand

            Reply
            • Nand-Sorry for even I too missed. In ITR2, while declaring the assets for an individual whose income is Rs.50 lakhs or more, the assets which you have to declare should be the “COST OF ASSET” but not the current market price. Hence, let us say you invested in MF or Stocks, then the purchase price of all such assets you have to declare rather than the current market price.

              Reply
              • Thanks Basavraj for your prompt reply.In short whatever assets I hold as on 31 Mar 17 irrespective of date of purchase will hace to be shown at cost/purchase price.So even if I have purchased MFs of Rs 12 Lakhs during the FY 15-16, but as on 31 Mar 17 hold lets us say MFs at Rs 30 Lakhs cost / purchase price, then I must shoe Rs 30 Lakhs as MFs held as on 31 Mar 17.

                Please confirm that I am right and that would end my querry

                Reply
                • Nand-You again misunderstood. Here the COST OF ASSET means the cost of purchase. In your example, it is Rs.12 lakh but not the current value of that (which you mentioned as Rs.30 lakh).

                  Reply
                  • Sorry sir, my mistake again. Now I will put it in a better format
                    a) Cost of MFs purchased in FY 16-17- Rs 12 Lakhs
                    b) Earlier balance of previous years MFs at cost Rs 18 Lakhs
                    c) Total MFs held at cost as on 31 Mar 2017- Rs 30 Lakhs(a+b)

                    So I am saying I need to show total MFs held at cost as on 31 Mar 2017 as Rs 30 Lakhs in the schedule”Assets and Liabilities” in Financial Assets( Biv)(b)-shares and securities.

                    Once again sorry for oversight. But hope there is no doubt now.

                    So please do confirm

    I have a question. I am a Software professional and my main income is through Salary. Apart from that I have interest income, income from 2 houses, Capital Gains and a small income from Profession working as a consultant. My guess is that I will have to file ITR 3. My question is that can I use Section 44 ADA for my income against profession? My Gross Receipts is around Rs 1,75,000 for my professional income.

    Reply
    • Pallav-Yes, you are right that you must use ITR3. You can use the Section 44ADA, but you loose the option of claiming deductions related to this profession. Also, you have to pay the advance tax. Think the possibility of profits in your personal case and accordingly act.

  98. IS IT MANDATORY TO FILE A RETURN WHEN WE R NOT COMING UNDER TAX i.e pensioner with handicapped exemption etc

    Reply
  99. I have sold a house property in Dec2016 in joint name of me and my wife. This house was on rent till Oct2016. After indexation, LTCG amount have been kept in separate C.G.A account(Bank) of me and my wife. I have paid full amount of my CGA to a developer for flat which will be handed over to me on Jan2018. CGA of my wife will be used to pay for another flat which will be handed over in Feb2018. I have one house property in my name for last 6 yrs residing there. Me and my wife are filing separate IT return. My income is less than 10L. My wife income is less than 2L Which IT form should me and my wife should file for FY16-17. Do I and my wife need to pay any tax for LTCG / CGA of sell of house property.

    Reply
    • Haradhan-As the momey is invested in CGA (in your case) and re-invested to purchase the second property, then you are exempt from paying tax on capital gain. However, you have to show the proof of these investments to avail the tax exemption from LTCG. You have not mentioned what other sources of income you both have. Hence, it is hard for me to guide. Refer the above post properly.

      • In the FY2016-17 I and my wife both have income of rent from the house we sold. I have income from Pension, interest. and share trading. My wife has income from interest.

        Pl guide which IT return from me and my wife should file separately.

        Reply
        • Haradhan-Whether the income from the house is from first property or second property? Share trading in your case is considered as business income. Hence, you must use ITR3.

            I have sold a house property in Dec2016 in joint name of me and my wife. This house was on rent till Oct2016.I have earning from this house. I have one more house property in my name for last 6 yrs residing there. More detail information is given in previous two posts by me.

            Reply
            • Haradhan-As your income constitute pension and business (share trading), you have to use ITR3. For your wife, she can use ITR 2 (Because for her also this is second property I think).

                For guidance on ITR.

                The first house which we sold in DEC2016 was in joint name of me and my wife. The second house is in my name only. We are residing in 2nd house for last 6 years. My wife has booked another house which will be delivered in FEB2018. I have booked a hose which will be delivered in JAN2018. More detail is given in last two posts. Which ITR form my wife need to fill.

                Reply
                • Haradhan-If for your wife, the house she is owning is not second one, then she can use ITR1 (as she has only the interest income and her first property income).

        How can my father claim HRA if he is filing ITR himself.

        • Raj-I am saying that he has to show your rent claim as his income. I think you are showing in your ITR that you are paying rent to your father. Then that rent should be your father’s income right?

  106. Very well researched and detailed article as usual. Thank you.

    I have a question. I gave up my job to build mobile apps (crazy me!). As a result, in the financial year, I made only some pocket money and no salary. I don’t have my company (if you call that) registered per se. Also I have some short term capital gains to declare. Now, I am not sure which ITR form to go for.

    From your article, I understand that ITR 2 is for Salary, Capital Gains and ITR 3 is for Salary, Capital Gains, Business of Professional Income)

    ITR 3 is too complicated for me to report this pocket money I got. My tax calculation would be NIL anyway. So I wonder whether I should bother with ITR 3 at all. Would be great to hear your opinion.

    Reply
    • Ragu-Better you file IT return by showing all sources of income. Pocket money in what sense?

      Reply
      • Hi Basu, By pocket money I meant that the earning on my app is not more than 20k for the whole FY. For this, I wonder if I must use ITR 3 if we consider this as business or professional income.

    • Dear Basu,

      It would be good if you could respond to my query. Just a small correction – I have TDS under 194J and 194 H. I am not sure if can use ITR4 for filing. Should I show the income related to TDS 194H as “income from other sources”?

      Thanks
      Atul

      Reply
      • Atul-Both Sec.194J and 194H deals with TDS or profession and commission. You can’t show such income under the head of “Income from other sources”. Both are considered as your business or professional income.

  109. Thank you for this website! My question is not related to this topic.

    My father (60+ year old) has 2 sources of income: Pension+FDs. Every year, he submits Form 15H since his net tax liablilty (after investing in Section80C) comes out be NIL.

    My question is while filling Form15H, there is a column of income from FDs. How can we know in advance how much interest his various FDs (of different tenures & ROI) are going to earn in the coming Financial Year for the purpose of filling Form 15H?

    Generally at the end of Financial year, we ask the bank to give us a certificate mentioning the interest earned from FDs. So, is that (asking from bank) the only way?

    Thx in advance!

    And I’ve declared my ebay+FD+Adsense income under “income from other sources” using ITR-1 in previous 3 FYs, as they are not my primary income. Should I re-submit the ITR for that previous FY? I didn’t hide my income, just declared using ITR-1 sahaj.
