What is Income Tax Refund?

If you paid more taxes than you were required to pay, you can claim the additional amount as income tax refund. 

If the taxes paid (either by way of Advance Tax or TDS or TCS or Self-Assessment Tax) is more than the actual tax amount due, then the excess tax paid can be claimed as refund. The income tax department will recompute the taxes and validate the refund claim before initiating the refund.

Refund=  Taxes paid (either by way of Advance Tax or TDS or TCS or Self-Assessment Tax) – Total tax liability on the current year income

How to claim income tax refund?

To claim your income tax refund or TDS refund, all you need to do is file your Income Tax Return and declare your income, deduction and tax paid details to the Income Tax Department. It is important to remember that online filing of your ITR is a must to claim your Income Tax Refund.

I missed my ITR filing by the due date, can I still claim my refund now?

The deadline to file your ITR for non-audit cases was 31st July 2022. However, if you could not manage filing your taxes before the deadline, you can still file a late return, known as Belated Return. The last date to file a belated return is 31st December 2022. You can claim your tax refund through a belated return

6. What does my refund status mean?

Refund Statuses:

  1. No e-filing has been done for this assessment year
  2. Under processing
  3. Refund issued
  4. Processed with no demand no refund
  5. Refund Failure
  6. Case transferred to Assessing Officer
  7. Demand determined
  8. Rectification processed refund determined
  9. Rectification processed demand determined

1. No e-filing has been done for this assessment year

Step 1. What does this mean?

This could mean your IT return was not filed at all.

Step 2. What do I do now?

2. Under processing

What does this mean?

This means that the income tax department has still not processed your income tax return. Please check your refund status after a month to see if it has been updated.

3. Refund issued

What does this mean?

This means the income tax department has sent the refund to you (by cheque or by direct debit to the bank account number you provided while e-filing).

4. Processed with no demand no refund

Step 1. What does this mean?

This could mean either:

  • The most common case is you filed with no refund and no tax due. In that case, you’re all set for this year.

  • It could also be that you did file for a refund, but the income tax department denied the refund because their calculations did not tally with yours.

    This generally can happen because of a mismatch of TDS data, incompletely or improperly filled sections in the original filing.

Step 2. What do I do now?

  • If you forgot to include some deductions while filing, you can revise your return

    Read ClearTax’s guide to revising your Income Tax Return.

  • When the income tax department differs on the information you’ve provided, they would have also sent you an intimation u/s 143(1) explaining why. You can now fix the errors and file a rectification to support your refund claim.
  • You can get help from an expert who can go through your tax notices and tax returns to best guide you. The expert can also help you file a rectification.

5. Refund Failure

Step 1. What does this mean?

This could mean the bank account details (account number or IFSC Code) that you submitted to the I-T department are wrong and not pre-validated, and hence the refund wasn’t processed.

Step 2. What do I do now?

  • You need to log in to incometax.gov.in, enter the correct bank details with the I-T department, and prevalidate the bank details.
  • After you prevalidate the bank account, apply for the ‘Refund Reissue’ from your e-filing account.

6. Case transferred to Assessing Officer

Step 1. What does this mean?

This could mean:

  • This typically indicates that the IT department needs further clarification/information regarding the income tax return that you filed. The Assessing Officer would like to discuss things further with you.

  • In some cases, this could also mean that you have some past taxes outstanding with the IT department which will be adjusted against the tax refund requested by you.

Step 2. What do I do now?

On receiving such a message, contact the AO (Jurisdictional Assessing Officer) for your region.

7. Demand determined

Step 1. What does this mean?

This means:

  • Your refund request has been rejected, and in fact, the IT department finds that you owe them unpaid taxes instead.

  • You may also have received a notice from the income tax department with the exact amount of tax outstanding and the reason for the same.

    This can happen because of incomplete or improper filling of tax details in the original return, withholding income information, or mismatch in TDS.

Step 2. What do I do now?

  • Read the intimation the IT department has sent you carefully and figure out where the problem occurred. Cross-check with your own e-filing records to verify the information you provided was accurate.

  • If you find that your own refund request was indeed erroneous, pay the tax demanded by the IT department within the time limit mentioned in the intimation.

    If you think the I-T department made a mistake, you can update your information if necessary and file a rectification supporting your refund claim.

  • We can connect you to an expert who can go through your tax notices and tax returns to best guide you. They can help you file a rectification.

8. Rectification processed refund determined 

What does this mean?

This message again goes out only to taxpayers who had been served an intimation to rectify their original returns.

The rectified returns may be completely or partially accepted by the IT department.

Based on the rectification, the IT department has calculated the refund amount and credited the refund

Such a message is shortly followed by a revised intimation and the refund amount from the IT department.

9. Rectification processed demand determined

What does this mean?

This message again goes out only to taxpayers who have been served an intimation to rectify their original returns. The rectified returns may be completely or partially accepted by the IT department.

However, the IT Department maintains that you have outstanding unpaid taxes. You will also receive an intimation with the exact amount that is outstanding and will have to pay this off within 30 days of receipt.


We can connect you to a tax expert who can go through your tax notices and tax returns to best guide you. They can then help you with the appropriate course of action.

10. Rectification processed no demand no refund

What does this mean?

This message again goes out only to taxpayers who have been served an intimation to rectify their original returns. The rectified returns may be completely or partially accepted by the IT department.

Based on the rectification, the department arrives at the conclusion that you neither owe any extra taxes nor do you qualify for any sort of refund of taxes already paid.

You will receive a revised intimation clarifying this fact.
