This time well in advance, CBDT notified the forms for ITR AY 2020-21. You can download Income Tax Return Forms AY 2020-21. As of now, CBDT notified the ITR-1 (Sahaj) and ITR-4 (Sugam).

The new ITR forms in PDF format are available. However, the excel utilities (or) Java Utilities for AY 2020-21 will soon be made available on E-filing website.

Before jumping to understanding the new forms, let us first understand the income tax slabs for FY 2019-20 or AY 2020-21 from the below image.

Points to consider before filing ITR for AY 2020-21 (FY 2019-20)

# You have to consider the standard deduction of Rs 50,000 in lieu of travel, medical expense reimbursement, and other allowances for salaried employees and pensioners. (Earlier it was Rs.40,000).

# If your total income is less than Rs.5,00,000 you no need to pay any tax. Because in Budget 2019, the Government revised the Sec.87A. Refer the earlier post ” Revised Tax Rebate under Sec.87A after Budget 2019“.

As of now, CBDT notified ITR1 Sahaj and ITR-4. I will update this section as and when the CBDT notifies the other forms. Also, do remember that as the forms have been notified without the return filing utility, the taxpayer, who is required to file the return before the previous year ends, cannot do so until the return filing facility is activated on the e-filing portal.

    • Dear Nirmlesh,
      Please read above post. If you have capital gains, then you can’t use ITR1.
