The new forms – ITR 2 and ITR 2A – will have only three pages and other details will have to be filled in schedules, said a Finance Ministry statement.

A new form ITR 2A has been brought out by the ministry which can be filed by an individual or HUF who does not have capital gains, income from business/ profession or foreign asset/foreign income.

Balance in Bank Accounts are Not Required to be Furnished

“As regards bank account details in all these forms, only the IFS code, account number of all the current/savings account which are held at any time during the previous year will be required to be filled-up. The balance in accounts will not be required to be furnished,” the statement added.

The statement also said that the last date for submission of tax returns will be extended to August 31, 2015.

With regard to the controversial provision of disclosing details of foreign visits, the release said that the assessee will be required to disclose only the Passport Number.

“In lieu of foreign travel details, it is now proposed that only Passport Number, if available, would be required to be given in Forms ITR-2 and ITR-2A. Details of foreign trips or expenditure thereon are not required to be furnished,” it said.

Further, the Ministry has done away with disclosure of details of dormant accounts which are not operational during the last three years.

Individuals having exempt income without any ceiling (other than agricultural income exceeding Rs 5,000) can now file Form ITR 1 (Sahaj). Similar simplification is also proposed for individuals/HUF in respect of Form ITR 4S (Sugam), it added.

As the software for these forms is under preparation, they are likely to be available for e-filing by third week of June. Accordingly, the time limit for filing these returns is also proposed to be extended up to August 31, 2015. A separate notification will be issued in this regard,” the release said.

लंबे इंतजार के बाद राजस्‍व विभाग के केंद्रीय प्रत्‍यक्ष कर बोर्ड (सीबीडीटी) ने नया और सरल इनकम टैक्‍स रिटर्न (आईटीआर) फॉर्म नोटिफाई कर दिया है। सरकार ने ITR फॉर्म 1, 2 और 4 एस को सरल बनाया है। नए फॉर्म में इनकम टैक्‍स रिटर्न दाखिल करने वाले लोगों को विदेश यात्रा की जानकारी या उसके खर्च के बारे में बताना जरूरी नहीं होगा। इसके साथ ही करदाताओं को राहत देते हुए इनकम टैक्‍स भरने की तारीख एक महीने बढ़ाकर 31 अगस्‍त, 2015 कर दी गई है। सामान्‍य रूप से इनकम टैक्‍स रिटर्न भरने की अंतिम तिथि 31 जुलाई होती है। हालांकि, पहले आए नए फॉर्म के विरोध के बाद सरकार ने नया और सरल फॉर्म लाने का वादा किया और नए फॉर्म आने में हुई देरी के कारण सरकार ने टैक्‍सपेयर्स को इनकम टैक्‍स रिटर्न भरने के लिए एक महीने का अतिरिक्‍त समय दिया है।

नहीं देनी होगी बैंक में पड़ी राशि की जानकारी
नोटिफाई हुए आईटीआर फॉर्म में करदाताओं को बैंक अकाउंट और आईएफएससी कोड की जानकारी देनी होगी, लेकिन उन्‍हें अकाउंट में पड़ी राशि की जानकारी नहीं देनी होगी।
सरकार आईटीआर फॉर्म 2ए भी लाने की तैयारी में है। आईटीआर फॉर्म 2 और 2ए तीन पेज से ज्‍यादा बड़े नहीं नहीं होगा।
