Every Indian Resident with any source of income is required to pay tax to the government in the form of Income Tax. The government imposes tax on every entity such as individuals, HUFs, Companies, LLPs, Association of Person, Body of Individuals, and any artificial judicial person. Income Tax Return is the form filed to furnish the information to the government about Income incurred along with tax liability. The form filed would vary depending upon the type of entity filing the return.
Every Company irrespective of its structure registered under the Companies Act 2013 or earlier under the Companies Act, 1956, shall file Income Tax Return through form ITR-6.
