Which ITR Should You File – Types of ITR Forms

The Income Tax Return, or ITR, is a mechanism that taxpayers use to provide reports to the IRS about their earnings and tax payments. A taxpayer must register his or her ITR on or before the deadline.

Before filing an ITR, any taxpayer can assess their tax liability and make payments. For instance, in the event of a failure carryforward and setoff of brought-over losses, you can file an ITR.
