Filing Income Tax returns is one of the major responsibilities of citizens. Anyone who crosses the threshold amounts (fixed by the Indian Government) of income is subjected to land-up in the desirable tax slab. To cater for citizens of all age groups, the Income Tax Department of India has introduced seven types of return forms. ITR 7 is one of them.

The various aspects related to this form such as eligibility criteria, the form structure, and the other information with respect to its filing details are discussed in this article.

Eligibility Criteria to file ITR 7 

Companies, Firms, Artificial Judiciary persons, and the Association of Person (AOP) are eligible to file ITR 7. Other than that Charitable or Religious Trust u/s 139 (4A), Scientific Research Institutions u/s 139 (4C), Political Party u/s 139 (4B), University or Colleges, Institutions or Khadi and Village industries u/s 139 (4D) can also file. Given the condition that they claim exemptions under Section 139 (4D), Section 139 (4C), Section (4B), and Section (4A).


Who cannot file ITR 7 for AY 2020-21 & AY 2021-22

Individuals or Firms who are not claiming exemptions under Section 139 (4D), Section 139 (4C), Section (4B), and Section (4A) are not responsible to file ITR 7 Form.

ITR Form 7 Filing mode

The ITR Form 7 is mandatorily filed online only on the Income Tax Department website. The two ways of filing are:

  1. Via digital signature
  2. By transmitting the required information via digital or electronic mode and subsequently submitting the verification via ITR-V Form.

Note:1. Two print-outs of ITR-V should be taken out and duly signed by the assessee. This is because one will be with the assessee and the other one will be with Income Tax Department for record purposes. 2. No other document is supposed to be attached along with TR Form 7. One should thoroughly check the deductions which are carried on their behalf with their Tax Credit Statement Form 26AS.  3. If the assessee is liable for Audit u/s 44AB then the details of such audit report & date of furnishing it to the department have to be filled under the head “Audit Information”.  

Overview of Verification Documentation

The Political Parties compulsorily need to verify via Digital Signature Certification (DSC) which is duly signed by CEO or the company’s secretary. Apart from it there are further options for verification for other people such as- 

  1. Authentication by Electronic Verification Code (EVC) 
  2. Duly signed ITR-V acknowledgement and posted it to the CPC office. 

All the process has to be carried out online.
