The task of filing Income Tax returns could be quite daunting for many, owing to the plethora of forms the process involves. But in reality it isn’t as complex as it seems. Here is a quick guide to help you understand the typical documents and forms required for filing returns.
A clear understanding helps you to file your returns correctly and accurately.

Documents for Evidence of Income

1) Form 16
Form 16 is the certificate of Tax Deduction at Source (TDS), given by employers. At the end of each financial year, your employer must mandatorily issue a Form16 detailing the salary income earned in the year along with the tax deducted on behalf of you.
It is however not compulsory to issue a Form 16, if there has been no TDS deduction in that year.
In cases where you have worked in two different companies in a financial year, Form 16 would have to be obtained from both the places.

2) Form 12B
This form is issued by the employer if your income is over and above Rs. 1,50,000.
It details all particulars of perks and fringe benefits given by the employer in the financial year.

3) Form 16A
Form 16 details incomes and TDS from sources other than salary. This would include interest on securities, rental income, winnings from lottery and horse race, insurance commissions, payments in respect of deposits under National Savings Scheme, fees for professional or technical services. You would have to obtain this statement from each of the source of income.

The new system of filing income tax returns introduced by the government, prescribes various forms based on the nature of income earned during the year.

Additional facts to be remembered
Declare interest from Saving bank a/cs (exemption only upto Rs10000)
IT definitely scrutinises declaration of SB a/c interest.
Interest on RD a/c /F/d is taxable.
Use correct ITR form
If you changed jobs in the course of A/Y declare both the incomes and pay up if tax is due.
Remember ITR are legal forms when filled up and submitted.
Keep file copy safe and hope no query comes up from ITO.
