ITR Filing of HUF

Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) is treated as a separate entity for assessment under the Income Tax Act. HUF does not originate from a contract. HUF is in itself a creation of law. After marriage, as soon as a child is born, HUF comes into existence. HUF consists of Father, sons and daughters. Wife is not part of the HUF. Sons and daughters and the father, i.e. Karta are the co-parceners in the joint family and have a right to command partition. The Karta can deliver his share in the co-parcenary to his wife.

If courts make the partition of HUF, the courts will always award equal partition. However, the family can mutually give effect to the partition without moving to the courts, and that can be unequal as per their agreement.

The provisions of computing income of the HUF are the same for a normal person.CAJCC can help you in forming HUF as well as in filing the income tax return.

ITR Filing of Partnership Firms

More than one person forms a partnership firm for conducting business under one entity. There are two types of firms (other than LLPs)-

Registered partnership firm
Unregistered partnership firm

A registered firm is a firm that has been registered with the Registrar of Firms and has obtained a registration certificate. Any partnership firm that does not have a registration certificate from the Registrar of Firms is unregistered. Under the Income Tax Act, 1961, a partnership firm and LLPs are liable to pay tax @30% flat rate increased by 12% surcharge if taxable income exceeds 1 crore followed by 4% health and education cess.

A partnership firm is a distinct legal entity from its partners, unlike sole proprietorships. It is also essential to pay income tax for a partnership firm, irrespective of the firm is registered or not. Just like LLPs and private limited companies, a partnership firm is also required to pay alternate minimum tax as per the applicable rates.To file tax returns for a partnership firm, one must submit the Form ITR-5. The form ITR-5 is used to file tax returns of the partnership firm only. There is a separate form available for the individual tax filing of partners of the firm.

ITR Filing of NGO/Trust/Society

Trusts have a unique tax mechanism. In the case of an assesse who is engaged in the business, usually, all expenditures incurred are permissible as deduction as it relates to earning of the income. The same is not in the case of trusts. In case of a trust, there is no nexus between the income (i.e., receipts by way of donations, grants, etc.) and expenses (application of money). As a result, the gross revenue of trust is liable for tax irrespective of the amount expended towards its charitable cause. For becoming eligible for availing deduction towards the amount applied for a charitable purpose, trust must get registration u/s 12A of the Income Tax Act-1961.

The registration is a one-time procedure. After registering, trust can claim exemptions provided under the income tax. Trusts and NGOs registered under section 12A can exercise waiver from paying income tax on its receipts. The amount collected will be free from taxes as the fund used for charitable or religious purposes is deemed to be the application of income. The “application of income” refers to the expenditure towards charitable or religious purposes when computing the income for taxation.

The person registered under this section gets the benefit of setting apart 15% of the receipts for which no restrictions prevail for its application under the act. Such accumulated amount is granted as an application of income u/s section 11(2) & does not form part of the total income of a trust. Also, once the registration is granted, it last till it is cancelled by the Commissioner of Income Tax (Exemption) for any valid reasons. There are not any requirements for renewing the registration. Charitable Trusts, Religious Trusts, Societies and Section 8 Companies claiming exemption under Section 11 and 12 of the Income Tax Act, must get 12A registration.
