Common ITR Form issued by CBDT

Common ITR Form issued by CBDT

Common ITR Form issued by CBDT in India for taxpayers to file their income tax returns. The CBDT issues various types of ITR forms for different categories of taxpayers, such as individuals, Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), companies, and trusts, and each form is designed to capture specific information relevant to that category of taxpayer.


The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has proposed the introduction of a common Income Tax Return (ITR) Form which will replace the current different types of ITR forms available to taxpayers for filling their Income Tax Returns with the Income Tax Department.

The proposed new common ITR form will merge all the existing forms from ITR 1 to ITR 6 except the ITR -7 which is generally applicable to non-government institutions, charitable Institutions, business trusts, investment funds, etc.

The current ITR-1 and ITR-4 will continue even after the introduction of the proposed common ITR Form which will provide the taxpayers with an option to either file the tax returns in the existing ITR- 1 or ITR – 4, or the proposed common ITR at their convenience.

In the current situation, for filling the tax returns, taxpayers have to select the applicable ITR form from the ITR 1 to ITR 7 depending upon the nature/type of person (individual, HUF, firm) in accordance with their nature of income (such as salary, business income, capital gains, rental income).

The current available ITR forms are designed in a way wherein the taxpayer for filing the tax return is mandatorily requisite to go through all the schedules in the ITR form, irrespective of the fact whether that particular schedule/information sought is applicable or not, which increases the time taken as well complex the process to file the ITRs.

The scheme of the proposed common ITR is as follows:

1. Basic information (comprising parts A to E), Schedule for computation of total income (Schedule TI), Schedule for computation of tax (schedule TTI), Details of bank accounts, and a schedule for the tax payments (schedule TXP) is applicable for all taxpayers.

2. The ITR is customized for taxpayers with applicable schedules based on certain questions answered by the taxpayers (wizard questions).

3. The questions have been designed in such a manner and order that if the answer to any question is ‘no’, the other questions linked to this question will not be shown to the taxpayer.

4. Instructions have been added to assist the filing of the return containing the directions regarding the applicable schedules.

5. The proposed ITR has been designed in such a manner that each row contains one distinct value only. This will simplify the return filing process.

6. The utility for the ITR will be rolled out in such a manner that only applicable fields of the schedule will be visible and wherever necessary, the set of fields will appear more than once.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
