The ITR 5 form is not meant for the following categories of taxpayers:

  • Individual assesses: Individuals should use the appropriate ITR form based on their sources of income. For example, most individual taxpayers use ITR-1, ITR-2, or other forms as applicable.
  • Hindu Undivided Family (HUF): HUFs must also use the relevant ITR form based on their income sources. Typically, they use ITR-2 or other applicable forms.
  • Company: Companies have their own set of ITR forms, such as ITR-6, for companies other than those claiming exemption under section 11.
  • Taxpayers who using Form ITR-7: Individuals or entities falling under Sections 139(4A), 139(4B), 139(4C), 139(4D), 139(4E), or 139(4F) are required to use Form ITR-7 for filing their income tax returns. These sections cover charitable trusts, political parties, educational institutions, etc.
