Download ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-2A 2014-15 for Salaried Employees released by IT Dept

Income Tax Returns for the year 2014-15 (Assessment Year 2015-16) were originally notified in the month of April 2015. However, on representations from income tax payers for certain complications in the filing of Income Tax Returns, Govt came forward to revise ITRs after simplifying those.

Consequently, Income Tax Department has released ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-2A, and ITR-4S now after simplification.

No major change in ITR-1

ITR-1 will be applicable to Salaried Employees having Income or loss from only one house property and without Capital Gains

ITR-2A for Salaried Class with out Capital Gains and more than one House Property

ITR-2A will have to be filed by Salaried Employees who have income or loss from more than one house property and without Capital Gains.

ITR-2 is meant for Salaried Employees who have income or loss from more than one house property and having Capital Gains.

From the Instructions for filing of Income Tax Returns released by IT Department along with ITR, it could be concluded that Majority of Salaried Employees will be covered by ITR-1 and ITR-2A as number of Salaried Employees who have Capital Gains will be very minimal.
