ITR Requirement For Taking Loan

Income Tax Return (ITR) is an important document that reflects an individual’s income, taxes paid, and other financial information. Many banks and financial institutions require ITR documents to process and approve loans. This is because ITR documents provide an assurance to lenders that the individual has a regular and stable income and is capable of repaying the loan.

Most banks and financial institutions require the last 2-3 years’ ITR documents as proof of income for loan applications. However, the specific requirements may vary depending on the type and amount of loan applied for, as well as the lender’s policies and criteria.

In addition to ITR documents, lenders may also require other documents such as salary slips, bank statements, identity proof, address proof, and property documents (in case of a secured loan).

Process For Filing an ITR

The process for filing an Income Tax Return (ITR) in India can be broadly divided into the following steps:

1. Collecting necessary documents: The first step is to gather all the relevant documents required to file the ITR. This includes documents related to income, such as salary slips, bank statements, interest statements, etc., as well as documents related to investments, such as mutual fund statements, stock trading statements, and property documents.

2. Choosing the correct ITR form: There are different ITR forms available for different types of taxpayers and sources of income. The taxpayer needs to choose the correct form that is applicable to their specific case.

3. Filling in the details: Once the correct form has been selected, the taxpayer needs to fill in the required details in the ITR form. This includes personal information, income details, deductions, tax payments, and so on.

4. Verifying the details: After filling in the details, the taxpayer needs to verify that all the information provided is correct and accurate.

5. Submitting the ITR: Once the details have been verified, the taxpayer needs to submit the ITR form. This can be done either online through the Income Tax Department’s e-filing portal or by physically submitting the form at an authorized bank or income tax office.

6. Acknowledgment and verification: After submitting the ITR form, the taxpayer will receive an acknowledgement from the Income Tax Department. The taxpayer then needs to verify the ITR form within 120 days of submission, either electronically or by sending a signed physical copy of the ITR form to the Centralized Processing Center (CPC) of the Income Tax Department.
