Basement Return Question

I need to put a return into my basement duct system. I have read all about the 10-foot from furnace requirement, but I also read something that said you could ignore that rule if your return was going to be in a room outside the furnace room. Is that true, or did I misinterpret?

Yes, you can ignore the rule if your furnace room has a door and fresh air pipe .
