Your income tax return (ITR) serves as proof of your legal and disclosed income in India. You have to file your tax returns using the ITR Forms based on your taxpayer type. The Income Tax Department categorizes Indian taxpayers based on income amount, income source, resident status, and other such factors. And a different ITR Form applies to each distinct category.

ITR Form 2 is one such tax return form, the details of which are discussed here.

What is ITR Form 2?

This ITR form is for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) not earning revenues from any business or profession. If your income sources include capital gains, foreign income, or earnings from agriculture exceeding ₹5,000, you need to file ITR-2.

Taxpayers eligible to file this ITR form are those who earn incomes from sources such as:

Also, if you are a Director in a listed or an unlisted company, you need to file your returns using ITR-2. The same rule applies if you own unlisted equity shares of a company or have signing authority in any account outside India.
