Is it necessary to file ITR (Income tax return) when I do not have any positive income (profit)?
If you have sustained a loss of the assesses in the F.Y, which you propose to carry forward to the subsequent year for adjustment against subsequent year positive income, you must make a claim of loss by filing your Income tax return before the due date.
Is it necessary to attach any documents along with the (ITR) Income tax return?
ITR forms are attachment less forms and, hence, the Income tax payer is not required to attach any document (like- proof of 80c, Investment, TDS certificates, etc.) along with the return of income (whether filed manually or filed electronically). However, these documents should be retained by the Income tax payer and should be produced before the Income tax authorities when demanded in situations like assessment, inquiry, scrutiny etc.
As per above, no documents are to be attached along with the Income tax return, however, in case of a Income taxpayer who is required to furnish a of audit report under section 10(23C)(iv), 10(23C)(v), 10(23C)(vi), 10(23C)via), 10A, 10AA, 12A(1)(b), 44AB, 44DA, 50B, 80-IA, 80-IB, 80-IC, 80-ID, 80JJAA, 80LA, 92E, 115JB or 115VW or to give a notice under section 11(2)(a) of income tax act shall furnish it electronically on or before the date of filing the income tax return.
