Select the correct income tax return form given your source of income and the qualification criteria. Complete the form to the best of your knowledge and ability by giving full information about the gross income taxes, income deductions, and exemptions to be claimed. This may entail cross-checking the information/input details to minimize mistakes.

Once done, you must file the ITR electronically using the Internet-based application provided by the Income Tax Department.
