Income Tax Return: How to Submit Your Sahaj Form? See Few Easy Steps

About seven types of Income Tax Returns (ITRs) are available for different categories of taxpayers to file by their fiscal year due date. ITR-1 (Sahaj) is one of the simpler forms and targets a large number of small and medium taxpayers.

Sahaj must be filed by taxpayers who earn up to Rs 5 lakh and derive their income from wages, home ownership/other sources (interest etc.). Specifically, the ITR filing for taxable FT22 for the 2022-23 tax year is due on July 31, 2022.

According to the Income Tax Department’s website, registered users can pre-fill and file ITR-1 services on the electronic tax filing portal. This service allows individual taxpayers to submit ITR-1 online through the Electronic Filing Portal.

To file the ITR-1 form, the taxpayer must have a registered user ID and password. Also, their Permanent Account Number (PAN) status should be active. Other important details include: PAN associated with Aadhaar, pre-verified at least one bank account and specified for refund, and valid mobile number associated with Aadhaar/e-filing portal/bank account/NSDL/CDSL.

Taxpayers must file five parts under ITR-1. These are – Personal Information, Gross Gross Income, Gross Deductions, Taxes Paid and Total Tax Liability.
