Why you must respond to outstanding tax demand online Income Tax Refund
March, 16th 2020

If you are waiting for the income tax refund and not yet received it, there could be an outstanding tax demand from the income tax department. If any tax refund is due, the refund will be adjusted against the outstanding demand. Currently, in order to speed up the processing, the tax refunds up to Rs 5,000 are being issued without adjustment of outstanding demand. However, in the case of higher refunds, it is better to confirm and pay any tax due to the government. Once the outstanding tax is paid to the government, your income tax return will get processed and tax refund, if any will become payable.

To check your Outstanding Tax Demand status, you can log on to the e-filing website of the income tax department and not only submit the response online but also one can pay outstanding tax demand online if any. You can even choose to Agree or Disagree with the tax demand.

Here is how to check Outstanding Tax Demand Status:

Log-on to ‘e-Filing’ Portal www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
Go to the ‘e-File’ menu, Click ‘Response to Outstanding Demand’.
Click the hyperlink ‘Submit’ located under the ‘Response’ column

You will be redirected to the NSDL website to pay the tax.
Here, you can choose any one of the listed responses.
