As the deadline for filing your ITR 2022 is around the corner, it is important for the taxpayers to know the correct type of Income Tax Return (ITR) form applicable to them.

EJ Biz explains which form to choose while filing income tax return:

ITR 1 Form or Sahaj

ITR1 Form Sahaj is for salaried individuals having a total income of up to Rs 50 lakh. You can also file a return in ITR 1 if you earn income from other sources such as interest from bank deposits, house property and agriculture income up to Rs 5,000.
