How to e-verify your income tax return using your Netbanking account?

Previously the process of return filing was completed once you send the ITR V to the CPC (Centralized Processing Centre) by post. Thanks to the digital wave, this has been replaced with the e-Verification of the tax return as the last step to successfully filing your return. Until you e-verify your return, it will be invalid. E-verification is done by generating the E-Verification Code or EVC.

To ease the process of e-verification, the income tax department has made available different modes through which the return can be e-verified. EVC can be generated through OTP, bank account number, DEMAT account number and net banking.

Through this article, we will lay out the step by step process of e-verification through net banking.

 

Step 1: Login to your Netbanking account and locate the income tax e-filing tab. This differs from bank to bank. You will be redirected straight to the Department website from here.

 

Step 2: On being redirected to the income tax website select the ‘View Returns/ Forms’ option to see e-filed tax returns.
