e-Filing ITR Income tax returns online

2009 -10 ITR (Income Tax Returns) is now an easy job for any tax payer; Paying Tax perfectly is not just enough but it's simple and minimal thing from tax payer to submit his returns. Till last year it is only available for people who have earnings more than 40 Lacks but the year Income Tax India has given flexibility to all tax payers irrespective of their salary norms.

After receiving Form 16 from your employer; now there is no need to meet any consultant to file your returns. And you need not pay any special fees also. (Generally consultants used to charge 150 to 200 R/- to file this return previously).

Now the Govt. of India has given such a nice facility to all Tax payers to file their returns easily through online itself.

To file our returns online the process is just simple,

  • Open web site : www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
  • Register yourself with your valid PAN number and create login and remember the password you entered. (Username will be just your PAN number itself)
  • In the home page of website find tab called "e-Filing A.Y.2009-10" Highlight this to see appropriate type of Tax payer. (Generally employees can choose "Indivisual,HUF").
  • Once you click on that option you can see 4 Kinds of ITR forms, choose the which is appropriate to you.(Generally If your earnings are only from your employer, "ITR-1 Excle utily" file is enough)
  • Now open the downloaded excel file after unzipping.
  • Try to map the fields that are visible in form 16 and ITR-1. Mostly the same names will be used in Form 16 as shown in ITR forms.
  • Fill all the details of your Total earnings, Total savings, Total Tax payable amount, Total tax paid and Balance Tax payable.
  • Try to give refunds amount incase if you have to get money from Income tax dept.(Incase if you paid extra tax). Mention Bank account details like MICR code and account number along with the refundable amount.
  • Mention your postal address, e-mail, PAN No clearly.
  • Mention the TAN number correctly by seeing from your Form 16 in the last tab of the excel sheet.
  • Once all the details are filled try validating all tabs of the excel file and Click on the Generate xml file.
  • Once the XML file is ready just login to the IT-India site and try to find tab called SUBMIT Return and select appropriate year.
  • Upload the XML file
  • Immediately an e-mail containing the receipt which is ITR-V of e-filing will be sent to your email address.
  • You can directly download the same from the same website and you can track the status as well.
  • Try to open the ITR-V which is in the form of PDF file. Password would be PAN number followed by Date of Birth EX : U'r PAN no is AJUPP5876T and your mentioned DOB is Aug 1 81 your password to open pdf file will be ajupp5876t01081981
  • Take the print of this receipt sign on it (applicable only for people who don’t have digital signature to append in the document) and send it to the address mentioned at the end of document through ordinary post.
  • Address is Income Tax Department, CPC, Post Bag No - 1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore - 560100, Karnataka.

In case if we have a digital signature we will get digitally signed acknowledgement automatically which we can find in my accounts -> my returns. But for people who have sent it through normal post it may take some time to see acknowledgment in the accounts.

Don't you think it is easy process for a tax payer to file his returns online?

Note: While filling ITR-1 Excel utility you have to make macro priority to low to make all buttons like "validate" or "Generate XML" to work on that file. To do this Go to Tools -> Macro -> Security -> Security level; there select radio button LOW

  • The tax forms you need for self employment business are typically available from the following sources: the IRS, the state government site for which you owe the tax, or TurboTax Online. Usually, the best way to obtain the forms is to use the internet. It is an easy, quick and reliable resource. You may also print forms as you complete them, or even blank forms to review before you file.

  • Hi,

  • Hi,

    Do i need to furnish my form 16 along with ITR V after e filling? They are asking to send the ITR V to CPC Bangalore. Do I need to send form 16 or my PPF/ insurance receipts for which I got Tax benifit, along with ITR V?

  • I had paid Rs 88,000 in home loan interest but by mistake I filed ITR1 instead of ITR2. With ITR1 I am getting a return of 8,000 while with ITR2 I should have gotten a return of 31,000. In one of the above posts you mentioned ITR1 cannot be submitted in place of ITR2. Can you suggest what I can do now to submit ITR2 or to somehow have IT consider my home loan interest for the refunds.

  • hi krishna,
    This is fine for a person who had form -16 from a single employer.What if i have form-16 from more than one employer ? Do we need to take care of any additional steps? By the way where do we need to upload all these form-16's ?? please mail me @chandra.santhosh@gmail.com

Whoever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs, u can at least use Name/URL option which doesn’t even require any sign-in, The good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and the URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
