What is Income Tax Updated Return (ITR-U)

 

Updated return is a type of return on income u/s 139(8A) of the Income Tax Act 1961 to be filed using Form ITR-U. It allows taxpayers to:

  • File Return of Income Not Filed Earlier

  • Make Corrections in Disclosure in Income Tax Return

  • Fix or Change the Head of Income

  • Reduce the Carry Forward Loss

  • Reduce Unabsorbed Depreciation

  • Reduce Income Tax Credit and More

Additional Tax Payment

The Act requires that the taxpayer has to pay an additional 25 per cent interest on the tax due if the updated ITR is filed within 12 months, while interest will go up to 50 per cent if it is filed after 12 months but before 24 months from the end of relevant Assessment Year. Hence, taxpayers looking to update their returns for FY 2019-20 will need to pay the tax due and interest along with an additional 50 per cent of such tax and interest. For those looking to file an updated return for FY 2020-21, the additional amount will be 25 per cent of the tax payable and interest.
