ITR-4 Return Filing

The ITR-4 Form, commonly referred to as the Sugam form, is specifically designed for taxpayers who have opted for the presumptive income scheme outlined in Section 44AD, Section 44ADA, and Section 44AE of the Income Tax Act. It is mandatory for eligible taxpayers to complete and submit this form.

However, for businesses with an annual turnover exceeding Rs. 2 Crores, ITR-3 should be used. Additionally, depending on individual circumstances, ITR-5 may also be required.

ITR 4 Form is the Income Tax Return form designed for individuals, Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), and firms (excluding Limited Liability Partnerships or LLPs) who choose to utilize the presumptive income scheme as per Sections 44AD, 44ADA, and 44AE of the Income Tax Act.

The presumptive taxation scheme is designed to simplify tax compliance for certain individuals and businesses.

Under Section 44AA of the Income Tax Act, individuals and businesses engaged in specific activities are typically required to maintain detailed accounting records. However, Sections 44AD, 44ADA, and 44AE offer relief to small taxpayers by allowing them to estimate their Income at prescribed rates, reducing the burden of maintaining extensive financial records. Here’s a breakdown of these schemes for users of ITR4:

This scheme allows Resident Individuals, Resident Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), and Resident Partnership Firms (excluding Limited Liability Partnerships) engaged in certain businesses to calculate their Income on an estimated basis, provided they meet specific conditions.

Resident individuals in India who are professionals in fields specified under Section 44AA(1) can use this scheme to estimate their professional Income, subject to certain conditions.

This scheme is applicable to individuals, HUFs, Firms (excluding Limited Liability Partnerships), and other residents or non-residents engaged in the business of plying, leasing, or hiring goods carriages. They can estimate their Income under this scheme, provided they own not more than ten goods carriages during the previous year.

Eligibility Criteria for Filing SUGAM (ITR-4) Form

To qualify for using the ITR-4 SUGAM form, the taxpayer must meet the following criteria for the assessment year:

Total Income: The total Income should not exceed Rs. 50 lakh.

The Income should be derived from any of the following sources:

  • Income from Salary or Income from Pension.
  • Income from One House Property.
  • Interest income and/or Income from family pension taxable under Other Sources.
  • Income from a business, which is computed on a presumptive basis (Gross Turnover up to Rs. 2 crores).
  • Income from a business, computed on a presumptive basis (Income from goods carriage up to ten vehicles).
  • Income from a profession, computed on a presumptive basis under Section 44ADA (Gross receipt up to Rs. 50 lakh).

When Income is computed on a presumptive basis under sections 44AD, 44AE, or 44ADA, it is presumed to have been calculated after accounting for all allowances, depreciation, losses, or deductions as per the Income-tax Act. However, individuals incurring losses after applying the proviso to sub-section 3 of Section 44AE are required to file ITR-5.

If the taxpayer needs to combine the Income of another person, such as a spouse or minor child, with their own Income, the SUGAM form can only be used if the additional Income falls within the specified income categories mentioned above.

The following categories of taxpayers do not fall under the ITR 4 applicability criteria:

  • Directors of a company

  • Taxpayers with assets, including financial interests, in any entity situated outside India.
  • Individuals who have signing authority in any account located outside the country.

  • Additionally, this return form is not suitable for individuals who have any claims related to loss, deductions, relief, or tax credits of the following nature:

  • Claims for the credit of tax deducted at source in the hands of any other person.

The ITR 4 Form is structured into four parts for easy reporting of your Income and tax-related information:

This section of ITR 4 form includes your personal details such as name, gender, PAN number, date of birth, income tax ward, address, email address, and mobile number.

In this part, you report your Income from various sources categorized into five heads: Income from business, Income from salary or pension, Income from house property, and Income from other sources. By adding all these incomes together, you calculate your gross total Income.

Here, you list the deductions allowed under various sections of the Income Tax Act, such as 80C, 80D, 80E, and others. These deductions are subtracted from your gross total Income to arrive at your total taxable Income.

This section involves detailed calculations related to your tax liability. It includes factors like surcharge, relief under section 89, interest under section 234B and 234C, advance tax paid, TCS collected, refund, rebate under section 87A, cess on tax payable, and more. It computes your total tax payable, and if the total tax and interest exceed the taxes paid, it calculates the balance tax due.

For individuals reporting Income from business and opting for the presumptive income scheme under Section 44AD or 44AE, additional information needs to be provided:

  • Schedule IT: Statement of advance tax and self-assessment tax payment.
  • Schedule TCS: Statement of taxes collected at source (TCS).
  • Schedule TDS1: Statement of tax deducted at source on salary.
  • Schedules TDS2: Statement of tax deducted on Income other than salary.
  • Depending on your tax situation, you may also need to fill out supplementary schedules like TDS1, TDS2, IT, and TCS as required.

After completing all the necessary sections and schedules, you must verify and sign the return before submitting it. This ensures the accuracy and legitimacy of the information provided.

When using the SUGAM return form, taxpayers are not required to upload any additional documents, including TDS certificates.
