Now you can verify your ITR without login to your e-filing account
August, 07th 2019

It is mandatory for the taxpayer to verify it within 120 days of filing the tax return.

As per the latest update on the income tax department's e-filing website, now you can e-verify your income tax return (ITR) without logging-in to your account.

This is one of the many measures taken by the tax department to make the ITR filing process easier for taxpayers. Among these measures is the lighter version of the e-filing website, 'e-filing Lite', launched by the tax department last week.

Now, coming back to the latest update on e-verification, here is a look at how this can be done.

How to e-verify ITR without logging in to your account
Verification of tax return is the last step in the ITR filing process. Once the tax return is filed, it is mandatory for the taxpayer to verify it within 120 days.

If the ITR is not verified, it will not be considered valid ITR to be taken up for processing. Out of the six ways available to the taxpayer to verify ITR, five are electronic and one is physical method of verification.

Follow the steps below to e-verify your ITR:
Step 1: Visit www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
Step 2: Under the 'Quick links' tab, select the 'e-verify return' option.

Step3: Enter the details as required - PAN, Assessment year (2019-20) and acknowledgement number. Once you have entered the details, click on 'Continue'.

Step 4: Three options will appear on your screen:
a) Option 1: I already have an EVC to e-verify my return.
b) Option 2: I do not have an EVC and I would like to generate EVC to e-verify my return
c) Option 3: I would like to use Aadhaar OTP to e-verify my return

You can choose any of the options mentioned above and verify your tax return.

If you wish to verify your return using Aadhaar OTP, ensure that your mobile number is registered with the Aadhaar database as well.

If you do not have to EVC (Electronic Verification Code), then you can generate the same through your pre-validated bank account or demat account.

Things to remember
While using this facility to verify your tax return, you must keep the following in mind:
This facility can be used for the returns filed for FY 2018-19. You cannot verify your previous ITRs using this facility.
Only those tax payers can use this facility where verification is not required to be done via digital signature certificate (DSC).
