Do I need to attach details of TDS deducted, proof of investments etc?
ITR return forms are attachment less forms and hence, you are not required to attach any document (like proof of investment, TDS certificates etc.) along with the ITR (whether filed manually or electronically). However, these documents should be retained and produced before the tax authorities when demanded in situations like assessment, inquiry etc.
Are Audit and Financial statements preparation covered in the plan?
Audit & preparation of financial statements is only included in Plan D.
Is revised return covered under the plan?
Revised return filing on account of incorrect information provided by the assessee during the original return filing shall not form part of the plan.
What is a capital gain?
Any profit or gain that arises from the sale of a ‘capital asset’ is a capital gain. This gain or profit is charged to tax in the year in which the transfer of the capital asset takes place.
No capital gains is applicable when an asset is inherited because there is no ‘sale’, only a transfer. However, if this asset is sold by the person who inherits it, capital gains tax will be applicable. The Income Tax Act has specifically exempted assets received as gifts by way of an inheritance or will.
What are long-term and short-term capital assets?
  • A capital asset held for not more than 36 months or less is a short-term capital asset. An asset that is held for more than 36 months is a long-term capital asset.
  • For example, a house property held for more than 3 years is termed as a long-term capital asset, whereas equity funds are considered short-term when held for 12 months or less. Debt Funds are long-term assets when held for more than 36 months.
  • It is important to find out the specific holding period applicable to your asset because it impacts how the capital gains will be calculated.
  • Some assets are considered short-term capital assets when these are held for 12 months or less. This rule is applicable if the date of transfer is after 10th July 2014, irrespective of what the date of purchase is. The assets are:
    1. Equity or preference shares in a company listed on a recognized stock exchange in India
    2. Securities (like debentures, bonds, Govt securities etc) listed on a recognized stock exchange in India
    3. Units of UTI, whether quoted or not
    4. Units of equity oriented mutual fund, whether quoted or not
    5. Zero coupon bonds, whether quoted or not.
  • When the above listed assets are held for a period of more than 12 months, they are considered long-term capital asset
What is Capital Gain and how is it taxed?
When an asset is sold, the profit arising from such transaction is taxed as Capital Gain. Such gain can be long term or short term and the taxability differs accordingly. In General gain on sale of assets held for more than 36 months are called Long Term Capital Gain(LTCG taxed at 20%)and when assets is held for lesser period then Short Term Capital Gain( taxed according to normal tax slab rates) arises. In case of shares and securities the period is 12 months in place of 36months.

Yes, return can be revised within a period of one year from the end of the relevant assessment year or before completion of the assessment whichever is earlier. Filing of revised return is not part of the plan. Plan buyer is required to provide full and accurate details to avoid the need for any rectification in the originally filed return.
Am I required to keep a copy of the return filed as proof and for how long?
Yes, under the Income-tax Act legal proceedings can be initiated up to 4 to 6 years (depending upon case) prior to the current financial year. However, in certain cases the proceedings can be initiated even after 6 years, hence, it is advised to preserve the copy of return for at least 6 years or maintain it as long as possible.
