Income Tax Portal Update: CBDT enables Online and Offline Filing of ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-4 and ITR-6 in e-Filing Portal

In a move aimed at streamlining tax filing for citizens, the Income Tax Department has announced the availability of online and offline filing for ITR forms 1, 2, 4, and 6 on the e-filing portal. “This is a welcome step by the Income Tax Department,” said a spokesperson. “Offering both online and offline filing options caters to a wider range of taxpayers and makes the process more accessible”, he added.

Taxpayers can now file their Income Tax Returns (ITRs) for the Assessment Year (AY) 2024-25 (relevant to Financial Year 2023-24) electronically through the e-filing portal. The ITR forms enabled for online and offline filing include ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-4, and ITR-6.

The deadline for filing ITRs for FY 2023-24 (AY 2024-25) remains as July 31, 2024. Taxpayers can access the e-filing portal and related resources at Income Tax. This update is expected to streamline the tax filing process for many individuals and businesses, promoting timely compliance and reducing potential complexities.
