In a bid to make filing income tax returns easier, the government has introduced new three-page income tax return (ITR) forms, and has extended the last date of filing to August 31, 2015.


According to a statement by the Finance Ministry, the new forms - ITR 2 and ITR 2A - will have only 3 pages and other details will have to be filled in “schedules” which will be required to be filled only if applicable.
