While financial year starts from April 1 and ends on March 31, an assessment year is the year that immediately follows the financial year (FY) in which the income was earned. CBDT has so far notified the new ITR forms, from ITR Form 1 to ITR Form 6. Largely all the ITR forms have been kept unchanged from the last year, except few small changes. â€œThis timely notification will provide enough time for assesses to collate the information required to be disclosed for the year starting April 1. This also ensures that tax authorities have enough time to develop utility for the ITR forms, ensuring no last-minute glitches,â€ said Neha Malhotra, Director, Nangia Andersen LLP. Letâ€™s read which ITR form is applicable to you and changes to consider.
