Friends, Earlier only Excel Based Income Tax Return Preparation Utility (R.P.U.) was available to e-file Income Tax Return in new Form SAHAJ ITR-1. But now editable PDF format is also available for submitting Income Tax Return. Picture view of editable PDF file is given as under :-
(PDF format is better than Excel Format)
Benefit/Features of PDF format
- No need of Microsoft Excel.
- No need to Set Macro Security etc.
- No problem in Upper or Lower Case while typing PAN etc. If user type in lower case, utility auto convert in Upper Case.
- Easy data entry in comparison to Excel. (i.e. Enter Pan Number without pressing TAB or Mouse Key)
- Continue Complete Form. No need to select Separate Sheet like as in Excel.
- Auto Tax Calculator is also available in the bottom of PDF R.P.U.
- State selecting option is more easy. Only Name of States are available for selection. I mean to say there are no codes along with Name of State.
- Calculate Tax, Import From XML, Print , Check Form, Generate BarCode, Export to XML buttons are available in the bottom of the PDF file.
- To rectify the return, Import from XML button is excellent. In case you have XML file and you want to rectify this return. It is easy in this PDF form utility. This feature was not available in EXCEL based SAHAJ form.
