Since the total income is below INR 2.5 lacs, there won’t be any tax liability.

are we required to file IT returns


It’s always a good practice to file ITR. If your income is below the exemption limit you can file a NIL Income Tax Return.
By filing an income tax return you can:

  • claim refund for the TDS deducted
  • avoid non-filers notice from the Income tax department
  • carry forward losses to the subsequent financial years
  • ITR serves as a proof of income for visa applications, loans etc.

Know which ITR form you need to file

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

I have the another query on interest on bank deposits:
shall we include the accrued interest for this year in the taxable income?


While filing return , you can add earned interest (if you havent shown it before) in total income, and pay the remaining tax.

Can u pl elaborate?

The accrued interest on bank deposit should be reported as a taxable income in the ITR of the financial year. Further, the Bank would deduct TDS on the interest paid and accrued. Such TDS would be reflected in your Form 26AS and it thus advisable to report it as a taxable income to avoid a mismatch notice.

Report accrued interest income from bank deposits under IFOS (Income from Other Sources) and taxable at slab rates.

Dear Quicko,
For instance a person has less than 2.5 lakhs salary and made a loss in Trading,still they could file nil returns or need to do proper filing to carry forward losses for subsequent financial years,and also what about the last date for nil returns and proper ITR filing this year

To carry forward the loss to future financial years, it is mandatory to file the Income Tax Return. If the total income from all sources is less than 2.5 lacs and there is a trading loss, tax audit is not applicable. You can file the ITR on or before 31st July of the next financial year. For FY 2019-20 (AY 2020-21), the due date to file ITR has been extended to 30th November 2020 due to COVID-19.

You can file your ITR on online tax filing platform like Quicko. To take help of an expert from our team, explore the plans here - ITR Plans
