ITR-4(Sugam): A Comprehensive Guide to Filing Your Income Tax Return


Filing your income tax return can be a daunting task, but it's a necessary one. The Income Tax Department of India has made it easier for taxpayers to file their returns by introducing the ITR 4 form. In this article, we'll take a detailed look at ITR 4, its features, registration process, precautions, benefits, disadvantages, required documents, and more.

The Indian Government specifies seven income tax returns categories for its citizens. Among these is the ITR-4. ITR-4 is filed by partnerships/HUF/individuals/business owners (manufacturers, wholesalers, online sellers, etc.) whose net income of 2021-22 is up to 50 lakhs subject to other conditions.

What is ITR 4?

ITR 4 is an income tax return form that is used by individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) who have income from a presumptive business. It is also used by those who have income from other sources, such as capital gains, foreign assets, and more. ITR 4 is a simplified form that requires taxpayers to provide basic information about their income, deductions, and taxes paid.

The ITR-4 Sugam is one of the income tax returns forms. It is for those taxpayers who have opted for a presumptive income scheme. This scheme has been outlined in Section 44AD, Section 44AE, and Section 44ADA. Note, however, that if the business's turnover exceeds 2 crores in case of 44AD and 50 lakhs and in case of 44AE the assessee owned more than 10 vehicles at any time during the financial year then the taxpayer needs to file ITR-3.
