All Income Tax Returns filed after 01.04.2015 can now be E-verified via EVC

As per the latest release from the income tax department, now all returns which are e-filed on or after 1st April 2015 can be e-verified via EVC. These may be returns pertaining to Assessment Year (AY) 2014-15 or a return filed in response to any notice or as a condonation of delay under section 119 of the income tax act.

Starting assessment year 2015-16 (or financial year 2014-15), your income tax return can be e-verified. Which means instead of the painstaking process of sending your ITR-V, you can verify your tax return electronically via EVC.

This can be done by

  • generating an EVC code
  • or via aadhaar card OTP
  • or through net banking.

 

Sometime back the income tax department had also extended the date for receiving ITR-V for AY 2013-14 tax return and AY 2014-15 tax return to 31st October 2015. Read in detail here. These returns can also be e-verified via EVC.

 

(This is as per CBDT’s order dated 6th October 2015, F No 225/141/2015-ITA,II)
