For the assessment year (AY) 2023–2024, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has made the income tax return forms available. In the past, the Centre would announce the ITR forms at the conclusion of the fiscal year or the beginning of the next. All the parties would have plenty of time if ITR forms were announced beforehand. Taxpayers may anticipate completing their income tax returns shortly after the fiscal year ends thanks to the prompt availability of the forms for FY 2023–24. ITR forms for the relevant financial year were previously announced by the income tax agency in either March or April.
