No Exemption for Salaried Employees with income upto Rs 5 Lakh from filing IT return for A.Y. 2013-14

By Vivek Nasa

CBDT has vide its press release dated 22.07.2013 clarified that exemption from filing return of income for salaried employees having total income upto Rs. 5 lakhs including income from other sources upto Rs. 10,000/- was only for assessment year 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively. The exemption was given considering ‘paper filing of returns’ and their ‘processing through manual entry’ on system.

However, this year the facility for online filing of returns has been made user-friendly with the advantage of pre-filled return forms. These E-filed forms also get electronically processed at the central processing centre in a speedy manner. Hence, the exemption provided during the last two years is not being extended for assessment year 2013-14.
