The following steps will help you login/register on the Income Tax Department website:
Your account is setup and is ready for you to e-file your ITR. You can also view form 26AS which are your tax credit statements.
After registering yourself on the income tax efiling portal, let us understand how to log into the portal. To access the India income tax login page, you have to go to the homepage of the government portal, where you will see a box on the right side that has a ‘Login Here’ button for registered users. Click on it.
Once you have clicked on that button, you will be taken to the login page where you have to enter in your username and income tax login password.
Remember: The user ID is your PAN number. Did you know that you don’t have to bother about your login details if you are efiling on ClearTax? You can login easily using your Google account.
After logging in, your dashboard will display from where you can choose the option to e-file or view any statements such as form 26AS:
The tax credit statement or Form 26AS contains details of tax deducted on behalf of you by deductors. It also contains details of tax collected on behalf of the taxpayer by collectors as well as tax refund. You can view your tax credit statement to know the TDS deducted and submitted on your behalf by different deductors and collectors.
You can e-file your IT returns without your income tax website password. Just visit www.cleartax.in and start by entering your income details. You can also upload your Form 16, and we automatically prepare your income tax return and file it with the IT department website.
To be able to login and e-file your income tax returns, you will need your IT department password. If you’ve lost your password, you can reset your password. You need to be able to login to your income tax website account to view tax credit statements and more. In case you had linked your PAN with Aadhaar number, then you can reset your password using mobile OTP generated on your registered mobile number.

If you have skipped the due date for filing ITR, you can file a belated return. A belated return can be filed either before the completion of the assessment year or before the assessment is made , whichever is earlier. For instance, for the assessment year 2019 – 20, you can file a belated return before 31st August 2019 or, at the most, by 31st March 2020.However penalty will be charged for belated return of Rs 10,000.
In case the taxpayer wants to revise the original return due to some amendments , the same can be done using revised return u/s 139 (5).Previous to Budget 2021, revised return or belated returns were allowed to be filed either before the completion of the assessment year or before the assessment is made , whichever is earlier. However Budget 2021 has reduced this limit by 3 months, i,e an assessee can revise or file a later return by 31st December of the assessment year.
