CBDT Releases ITR Forms 1 and 4 for the Assessment Year 2024-25.

Income Tax Return forms 1 and 4 were informed by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Saturday. The Board has notified ITR forms 1 and 4, the Income Tax (I-T) department said in a post on the X platform.

The forms are intended for use in the 2024–2025 assessment year. This indicates that assessed may submit their tax returns for the 2023–2024 fiscal year using these forms.


A resident individual whose total income for the financial year does not exceed ₹50 lakh is required to file Form 1, also known as Sahaj.

ITR Forms

The income for which the return is filed comes from a variety of sources, including savings, interest from deposits, income tax refunds, interest on enhanced compensation, one house property, family pensions, agricultural income, and other sources.

You must download AIS in order to file ITR-1, and you must save copies of Form 16 as well as any appropriate house rent and investment payment premium receipts.

But as ITRs are annexure-free forms, you can complete your return electronically or manually without including any supporting documentation (such as TDS certificates or evidence of investment).
