The Presumptive Taxation Scheme was framed by the Income Tax Authority of India, under section 44AD, 44ADA, and 44AE of the Income Tax Act, 1961 to provide relief to the small tax payers from maintaining books of accounts, and getting their accounts audited. The assessees adopting this scheme are required to file their Income Tax Returns for the Assessment Year 2018-19 on or before 31st July 2018. An assessee adopting the Presumptive Taxation Scheme can declare income at a prescribed rate and thereby claim the relief. In other words, income of the assessee is calculated on presumptive basis rather than on actual basis. This scheme is most likely to benefit small traders, businessmen, and professionals. It cannot be adopted by a non-resident and any person other than an individual, a HUF, a partnership firm (not a Limited Liability Partnership).
