For the assessment year 2023–2024, the Income Tax Department has recently enabled offline Excel-based utilities for ITR-1 (Sahaj) and ITR-4 (Sugam) filing. This means that individuals can now download these utilities from the Income Tax e-filing website and use them to file income tax returns.
For those unfamiliar with Excel-based utilities, they are tools that allow taxpayers to electronically file their returns. By downloading the utility, enabling macros in Excel, and understanding the utility's requirements, individuals can effectively file their taxes. In case of any technical difficulties, taxpayers can seek assistance from CBDT's ITR utility customer service or consult tax professionals.

They are required to obtain their TDS certificate, also known as Form 16, from their employers. Form 16 is expected to be issued by employers by June 15. Once they have the necessary documents, salaried individuals can proceed with filing their returns.
