Filing an income tax return can be a complex process. Although taxpayers can now file their tax return online, there still remain certain common errors that most people end up making. Any mistake while filing the form can lead to issues later. Hence, your income, tax deductions, personal details like Pan card number, etc. must be correctly filled and submitted in time to the Income Tax Department. Another important aspect to keep in mind is selecting the right ITR form. There is a unique ITR form for every category of taxpayers. One of these is the ITR 3 form.

This article talks about the ITR 3 form, taxpayers who can use it, and how it should be filled.

What is the ITR 3 form?

Individual tax payers and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) can use an ITR 3 form to file their income tax return if they have earned their annual income from profits and gains from a business or profession. In broad terms this includes the following taxpayers:

  • Individuals who have earned their income from a business or profession.
  • Individuals who have earned their income from salary or pension, a property such as a house, and other sources.

Who can use the ITR form 3 for filing their income tax return?

Here are the eligibility criteria to use the ITR form 3 to file an income tax return:

  • The taxpayer is the director of a company or business.
  • The taxpayer’s residential status is either resident or non-resident of India.
  • The taxpayer is drawing an income from a pension.
  • The taxpayer is earning an income from house property.
  • The taxpayer has investments in unlisted equity shares.
  • The tax payer’s income is chargeable to tax under ‘profits and gains of business or profession.’ This includes salary, interest, commission, bonus, or remuneration.

Taxpayers can also use the ITR form 3 if their total income includes:

  • Income from single house property or multiple house properties.
  • Income from a lottery, betting on races, and other forms of gambling that are legal as per the Indian law.
  • Income from short term or long-term capital gains.
  • Income earned from a business or profession that practices under a proprietorship firm owned by the individual or a HUF.
  • Income earned from foreign assets.

    What are the restrictions to using an ITR form 3 for filing an income tax return?

  • Income earned from foreign assets.

The following taxpayers are not considered eligible to file an income tax return with an ITR 3 form:

  • An individual or HUF earning their income from a partnership or as partners from a business or profession. The right income tax return form, in this case, is the ITR 2 form.
