Nowadays, many people have started investing in stock market to earn some passive income. Especially a boost has been seen after lockdown when people were are working from their home, where either people were saving more money or people had lost their jobs and in both scenarios people started investing in stock market to earn some income.
Among this the salaried group of people are the one who are actively investing into stock market, they invest in stock, do F&O trading, intra day trading etc.
However they are confused as to how to file their return of income, where to show such income or loss, which ITR to choose and whether to claim loss or not. So in this post we shall discuss such questions and try to answer them.
The first question and the most basic question would be: Is one required to show such transaction in the return if there is no sale or there is a loss in the sale?
The answer would be if there is no sale no need to show it in the return and if there is a loss, it is recommended to include it in your return of income and carry forward the same as same would be helpful in future when you earn profit. We have discussed on it in detail in our earlier post for who needs to file return of income.
The second most common question is whether to show such income in the same return with salary income or separate return of income. We have also answered this question in our earlier post relating to myths of income tax return wherein we have said that for one person one return of income can be filed even if he is earning income from different sources.
Now the most important question: Which ITR to file?

|Income from other sources||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
