After you successfully e-file your income tax return, please e-verify your ITR-V via Netbanking, Aadhaar Card or through the EVC process on your mobile number and email. It is important to verify your return because the IT department will start processing your returns only after they receive the verification. For some reasons, if you are unable to e-verify your return, you can sign and send the ITR-V to the CPC via ordinary or speed post only. This has to be done within 120 days from the date of e-filing of a tax return.
– If you have missed the due date to file your return, you can still file it before 31 Dec 2019 by paying a fee of Rs 5,000. If you are filing after 31 December 2019, you will have to pay a fee of Rs 10,000. Also to note that the time limit for filing a return late for FY 2018-19 expires on 31 March 2020.
