Income Tax efiling using govt website
I just want to tell you that in-case you are just salaried and have no income from other sources, then the whole process of e-filing is just as simple as filling up details in tax return form at govt website, creating a .xml file and preparing an acknowledgement form using the tools provided by income tax website and then you need to speed post it to Bangalore Income Tax Office.
Steps for Online Income tax filing
- Login to https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/
- Download the appropriate software from the website as per your case. This software is nothing but a nice detailed excel sheet (enable the macro’s)
- Once you have the excel sheet on your computer , fill up all the details (if you don’t have form 16, you can still fill all the details manually).
- Once you fill up all the details , verify it once again and then export it to XML (the export button is there in the software itself)
- Once you have the xml file with you , you need to login to the website (you will have to register for it once) .
- Once you are logged in there will be an option called “Upload Return” on left side. Click on it
- There will be two options called “Digital Signature” and “No Digital Signature” . As most of the people would not have digital signature, just choose the option. Upload your XML file and just create your acknowledgement form called ITR-V , You need to download it . Once you have the acknowledge form, just verify it once again.
- Just send this acknowledgement form using a regular or speed post (no courier allowed) to “Income Tax Department – CPC, Post Box No.1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore – 560100, Karnataka”
- You will get the receipt of your ITR-V receipt by email in some weeks (takes time) , you can track its status here
A lot of people who work in big companies might already have filed their taxes as they get lot of tax filing agents coming in their offices, but for people who still want to do it by themselves, they can use this. I personally prefer this method 🙂
