SAVE YOURSELF FROM FILING YOUR INCOME TAX RETURN TWICE!!
Yes, you may have to file your Income Tax Return twice if you fail to verify your return on time. People who file their return online often forget to verify their Income Tax Return. If you file your Income Tax Return without digital signature then you need to verify your return either by sending ITR-V to CPC Banguluru or through Electronic Verification Code (EVC) because IT Department initiates the processing only when it is verified by the taxpayer.
When you are done with filing your return online, ITR-V is generated which is to be signed and sent to CPC Bengaluru within 120 days of filing of return. But, if you miss it by any chance then don’t worry you can always log into your account on Income Tax website (http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/) and find ITR-V there.The password to open ITR-V is your PAN number in lower case in addition to your date of birth without any space (panddmmyy).
If you don’t send your ITR-V within 120 days then your Income Tax return will not considered filed and you’ll have to file your return again.
ITR-V should be sent to CPC Banguluru only via ordinary or speed post at the following address:
Post Bag No – 1, Electronic City Post Office, Banguluru – 560100, Karnataka.
Also, keep the following points in mind before sending your ITR-V to CPC Banguluru so that your ITR-V does not get rejected by the Income Tax Department:
Use a4 plain paper and ensure that the print is clear and not faded.
Use only Blue Ink for signing, and the sign should be done only on the space provided.
Do not attach any supporting with the ITRV and also do not write anything on it except the sign.
Keep the above information in your mind and you are good to go!
