    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me how I can claim my medical and LTA exemption while e-filing the return.

    I am not sure at which section I can show this amount in e-file section.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Amit

    You cannot mention these exemptions in ITR 1 but can mention the same in ITR 2

    Thanks Gaurav. One more question, so if I want to claim these exemptions then I have to fill both ITR1 and ITR2 or only ITR2.

    Thanks,
    Amit

    You only have to file a single ITR.

    You can either file ITR 1 or ITR 2

    In ITR 2 - you will show the break up of exempt income whereas in ITR 1 - you will only show the net taxable income without showing the break-up of income

    Thanks Rudra, just for cross check, so if I want to claim the medical exemption then I have to fill ITR2?

    You can fill any form.

    However, in ITR 2 Form you have space to specifically mention this but in ITR 1 you only have to mention the consolidated taxable income.

    However, ITR 2 is more complex than ITR 1

    So is it that if in ITR 1 I want to claim LTA then I need to change first point that is INcome from Salary ...bcuz there's no place to claim deduction

    @Rinkesh Shah2 : Yes, your understanding is correct.

    As you cannot mention details of Medical allowance exemption and LTA Exemption in ITR 1, you should reduce this amount directly from the income from salary and mention the net taxable amount.

    @Yatin Gandhi,

    From 2014 I've not made any claim in exemption for Medical and LTA, Can I ask for the same in this year's return?
