In Saral Income Tax, these incomes will be captured as applicable during IT computation and return filing.  The process of entering other sources of income is as explained below;


The type of other sources of Income will differ from ITR to ITR.

To begin with, go to Other Sources option in the Tax Meter.

The screen displayed will list the sources of income depending on the ITR selected.

Identify the required sources of income and click on “…” button next to the sources.

These incomes have a special rate of tax and the income will not be considered with other incomes. The tax rate is determined to depend upon the type of income selected. Like Casual income has a rate of 30%, Royalty u/s 115BBF has 10%, Income from countries under DTAA will take the rate applicable as per DTAA, etc.
