ITR-2 is an income tax return form provided by the Income Tax Department of India. It is designed for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) who have income from sources other than business or profession. ITR-2 is suitable for taxpayers with income from salary, house property, capital gains, and other sources, excluding business income.

To file ITR-2, you will need the following documents:

  • PAN card (Permanent Account Number)
  • Aadhaar card
  • Form 16 or salary slips
  • Bank statements
  • Details of income from house property, including rental income
  • Details of capital gains, such as sale of property or investments
  • TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) certificates
  • Investment proofs, such as LIC premium receipts or home loan interest certificates
  • Details of any foreign assets and income, if applicable
  • Any other relevant financial documents supporting your income and deductions

  • Download the ITR-2 form and carefully fill in the required details.
  • Validate the form and generate an XML file.
  • Upload the XML file on the e-filing portal.
  • Once successfully uploaded, an acknowledgment called ITR-V will be generated.
  • Download and keep it for your records.
  • If you possess a digital signature, you can electronically sign the ITR-V. Otherwise, print it, sign it, and send it to the Centralized Processing Center within 120 days.
