How to file ITR-3?

Income Tax Return Form 3 (ITR-3) is designed for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) who have income under the head “profits or gains from business or profession” and are not eligible to file Form ITR-1 (Sahaj), ITR-2, or ITR-4 (Sugam). Electronic filing of ITR-3 is mandatory for these taxpayers. To file the ITR-3, registration on the e-filing portal is required.

The due dates for filing ITR-3 are as follows:

  1. Non-Audit Cases: The due date is 31st July of the next financial year.
  2. Audit Cases: The due date is 30th September of the next financial year.

Who should file ITR-3?

Individuals and HUFs eligible to file ITR-3 have income from the following sources:

  1. Business or Profession: This includes both tax audit and non-audit cases.
  2. Presumptive Taxation Scheme: Taxpayers registered under the presumptive taxation scheme with a turnover exceeding 2 crores during the financial year.
  3. Partnership Income: Individuals and HUFs who are partners in a firm but do not carry out business under proprietorship. This includes income from salary, bonus, commission, interest, or remuneration from the partnership firm.

How to file ITR 3?

A taxpayer is required to file ITR-3 online through the e-filing portal of the Income Tax Department. There are two primary methods to file ITR-3 electronically:

  1. Offline Preparation and Submission:

  • Verification Methods: Submit the verification of the return in Form ITR-V or e-verify using other available modes.

Once the return is e-verified using a digital signature, you will receive an acknowledgment receipt on your registered email ID. This acknowledgment serves as proof of successful submission and verification of your ITR-3.
