Three more months to verify ITR for past 6 years

The Income Tax Department has extended the time limit to verify income tax returns for the past 6 years, which is from AY2009-10 to AY2014-15.

Taxpayers who haven’t verified their tax returns for these assessment years can now do so till 31 August 2016. The tax returns can be verified through EVC or by submitting a signed ITR-V to CPC, Bengaluru. The EVC verification option is available to only those who have filed their returns electronically.

To verify the tax returns through EVC, log into the income tax department website. If you wish to submit a physical copy of the ITR-V, make sure that it is duly signed in blue ink and the original copy is submitted.

If you fail to meet this deadline, your income tax returns will be considered invalid.

    Is there any course of action available for verifying a tax return for AY 2008-09 which has been electronically filed?
