E-Filing 0f ITR-2 for Assessment Year 2013-14
Few days back department has issued Efiling utility for ITR-1 (Sahaj) and ITR-4S (Sugam) for the Assessment Year 2013-14 (FY 2012-13) which we have already posted here on ITU.
Unlike AY 2012-13, in AY 2013-14 most of the taxpayers would require to efile ITR-2 because ITR-1 is to be used by only those taxpayers whose exempted income does not exceeds Rs.5000/-. In simple words, taxpayers whose exempted income is more than Rs.5000 cannot use TR-1 and have to File their tax return in ITR-2.
