Today CBDT has finally released after 47 days of start of Assessment Year 2018-19, Java Utility of ITR-3 (For individuals and HUFs having income from profits and gains of business or profession). It is worthy to note that CBDT is failed to release excel utility of ITR-3 and released only Java utility of ITR-3.

Earlier CBDT has released Excel and Java Utility of ITR 1 on 14th April 2018, Excel and Java Utility of ITR-4 on 10th May 2018, Only Java Utility of ITR-2 on 15th April 2018. It is also worthy to note that CBDT has even till date only released Java Utility of ITR-2 and yet to release Excel Utility of ITR-2.

CBDT has earlier notified ITR Forms vide Notification No. 16/2018-Income Tax dated 3rd April 2018.

Due to consistent delay in release of ITR Utility by CBDT Taxpayer around the Country has started demanding Linking of ITR Due Date with ITR Utility Release date. Read-Link ITR Filing Due date with ITR E-filing Utility Release Date.

Now we have to see if CBDT extends due date of filing Income Tax Return in view of Punjab and Haryana High Court Judgment in the case of Vishal Garg Vs UOI in which High Court has instructed CBDT to ensure that the forms etc. which are to be prescribed for the audit report and for e-filing the returns should ordinarily be made available on the first day of April of the assessment year.

Java utility of ITR-3 for A.Y. 2018-19 can be downloaded from

    ITR2 as well as ITR1 both java and excel utilities , noticed one defect. In tds sheet ,under column requiring the year to be selected in which tds deducted, latest previous year displayed is 2016 instead of 2017. What is the solution?

  2. George CX. says:

    ITR-2 java utility is very easy to operate, you can save draft any number of returns using the utility.
    Download the utility, click to unzip, from the folder created click to open and click open the ITR batch file of KB, here you get the utility opened, after filling possible entries click on save draft. Later when you want open to make further entries click on open tab next to new and you will get the partially filled ITR-2,

  3. Vijay Kumar Dadoo says:

    Finance Minister, CBDT should look into this. All forms should be posted on E filing portal right within 15 days of Budget presentation.
    Tax Payers should be ready to pay Late Filing Fees Rs. 5000/ Rs. 10,000/-
