How to Revise your Income Tax Return


Did you e-file your income tax return using ClearTax? If you have and are looking for the process to revise a return this guide will help you.

There are chances of taxpayers making mistakes while e-filing their Income Tax Returns. You can always revise your return on ClearTax for no extra charge. Earlier, an income tax return could be revised only if the original return is filed within due date of filing return. The good news is that from FY  2016-17, even a belated return can be revised. If you have not filed original return using ClearTax i.e filed your return through income tax department’s portal or any other website, you can use ClearTax to file a revised return.
