- Verify your tax return either by through e-verification OR posting ITR-V
- Once your ITR-V or e-verification is received by the IT Department, your refund, if any, shall be processed.
- E-verification or submission of ITR-V completes your e-filing process.
Returns for AY 2013-14 and AY 2014-15 could be e-verified uptil 31st October 2015 – read here.
