What is ITR-3 form?

The ITR-3 form is designed for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) who earn income from a business or profession. This form is also appropriate for those who receive income from a partnership firm or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). Simply put, you need to file ITR 3 if your income falls under the category of “Profit or Gain of Business or Profession.” Additionally, it is used when a tax audit is required.

Up until FY 2018-19 (AY 2019-20), it wasn’t mandatory to file an Income Tax Return if your total income was below the basic exemption limit. However, the 2019 Budget introduced the seventh proviso to Section 139(1). According to this provision, taxpayers must file an ITR even if their total income does not exceed the basic exemption limit if they have engaged in certain high-value transactions. These transactions include:

  1. Depositing more than INR 1 crore in a current account
  2. Incurring foreign travel expenses exceeding INR 2 lakh
  3. Incurring electricity expenses over INR 1 lakh

Who Can File ITR-3?

The ITR-3 form is meant for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) who have income from various sources, including:

  • Partners in a Partnership Firm or LLP:
    • If you are a partner in a partnership firm or an LLP, you need to file ITR 3.
  • Income from Multiple Sources:
    • Individuals earning income from salary, house property, capital gains, and other sources, along with “Profits or Gains of Business or Profession,” must file ITR 3.
  • Non-Eligibility for Presumptive Taxation:
    • Those not eligible for the Presumptive Taxation Scheme under Section 44AD, 44ADA, or 44AE should use ITR 3.

Filing your income tax return (ITR) is a crucial annual task, and understanding the process can sometimes feel overwhelming. To simplify things, let’s break down the essentials step by step.

Part A: General

When filling out your ITR-3 form, attention to detail is key. Ensure every section is completed as indicated. If a particular schedule or item doesn’t apply to you, mark it with “NA” or “Nil.” For negative figures or losses, precede the figure with a hyphen (-). All figures should be rounded off to the nearest rupee, but when it comes to total income, round off to the nearest multiple of ten rupees.
