    Calculate Business Income: The owner must determine their net business income by subtracting all legal business expenses from their total annual income.

    Report Business revenue in Personal ITR: The proprietor must include information about the revenue earned and costs incurred in the personal income tax return (ITR) and report business income under the relevant heading.

    Claim Deductions and Benefits: The owner is entitled to certain business-related expenses, investments, and other eligible expenditures that are eligible for deductions and benefits under the Income Tax Act.

    Pay Taxes: The proprietor is required to pay the applicable income tax in accordance with the tax slabs and rates in effect for the assessment year, based on the total income, which includes both personal and business income.

    File regular GST returns in accordance with the GST laws if the proprietorship is registered for the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

    Respect TDS Requirements: If the proprietor receives payments that are subject to Tax Deducted at Source (TDS), they must deduct TDS at the appropriate rates and file TDS reports in accordance with those requirements.

    How to File a Proprietorship Income Tax Return?

    Unless exempted, proprietorships are required to file income tax returns. As was already mentioned, a proprietorship's income tax is considered as the proprietors. Using the proprietor's electronic signature and an e-filing gateway, the tax return can be submitted online or physically. The proprietorship's kind determines the form to be used:

    Form ITR-3: If a Hindu Undivided Family or another individual owner is running the business, they must file income tax using Form ITR-3.

    Form ITR-4 Sugam: The proprietorships covered by the presumptive tax schemes should use Form ITR-4 Sugam, which is a form specifically created for them. For small enterprises, this reduces the complexity of compliance. The income tax of a proprietorship is regarded as the proprietor's income, as was previously stated. As a result, the proprietorship's business income is added to his or her personal income, which includes the business taxes. The owner is still entitled for all tax breaks offered to individuals or Hindu Undivided Families (HUF), as appropriate.
