Through This Article, we have tried to analyze various (Income Tax Return) ITR Forms required to be filed by Salaried Person who is having Stock Market/ Mutual Fund Transactions.

Futures & Options (F&O)/ Intraday
F&O is considered as a normal business & Profession. Intraday is considered as a Speculation Business. Here you need to maintain books of accounts (BOA) and ITR-3 is required to be filed when you have Income under the head Profit from Bussiness and Profession (PGBP).
