Filing ITR via the Official Website

Step 1:- Log on to www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. Register using your Permanent Account Number (PAN), which will also be your user ID in case you are already registered.

 

Step 2:- Check your Form 26AS (Tax Credit) for the financial year 2014-15. This statement reflects the total taxes deducted by your employer. The TDS as mentioned in your Form 16 must tally with the figures in Form 26AS. Any discrepancy could land you in a legal trouble.

Step 3:- Under the 'Download' menu, click on Income Tax Return Forms and choose AY 2015-16 (for the financial year 2014-15 ). Download the Income Tax Return (ITR) form applicable to you.

Step 4:- Open the downloaded Return form (excel utility or java utility) and enter the details by using your Form 16. Click on the ‘Calculate Tax’ tab to compute tax payable. Confirm the details filled in the worksheet by clicking the ‘Validate’ tab. Proceed to generate an XML file which will be automatically saved on your computer.

Step 5:- Go to ‘Upload Return’ on the portal’s left panel and upload the saved XML file after selecting the relevant ITR form name and Assessment Year. If you want to digitally sign the form, click on ‘Yes’ else choose ‘No’.  

Step 6:- Once the process is complete, message of successful submission will be flashed on your screen. If the return is not uploaded with Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), the acknowledgement form ITR-Verification (ITR-V) will be generated and sent to your registered email-id.

Step 7:- A duly verified ITR-V should be signed and send to CPC, Post Bag No. 1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore - 560100 by ordinary or speed post only within 120 days of filing the return online.
