Lawyers are similar to other citizens of the country and they have to file return.

I agree with the view of Mr. Sanjeev & Mr. JSDN. Lawyers like any other individual are liable to income tax & have to file their return of income if their income exeeds the exemption limit.

Lawyers have to pay income-tax and file returns under the head "Profits and gains from business or profession".

Depending on the level of income they may have to maintain account books, and above a certain level they will have to get their income audited also.
