Step 3: The next step is to e-file your income tax returns –

  • Log in by entering your Username, click on Continue, and then your Password.

  • Go to the ‘e-File’ tab and then to ‘File Income Tax Return.’

  • Select the Assessment Year for which you wish to file your Income Tax Returns and click on ‘Continue’.

  • You’ll be asked whether you want to file your taxes offline or online. We have selected online, as the former takes a little more time than the latter.

  • Choose if you want to file your taxes as an Individual, a Hindu Undivided Family (HUF), or others. Here, we have selected ‘Individual’ as an option.

  • Select the Income Tax Returns (ITR) that you want to submit. You can refer to the table given below to understand the ITR forms. Here, we have selected ITR Form 1. Once done, you need to fill in your details as per the form selected by you.

  • The following step will question you whether you filed your returns beyond the basic exemption limit (A basic exemption limit reduces the amount of income that is subject to Income Tax, for example – the basic exemption limit for individuals under the age of 60 is ₹2,50,000 under the old tax regime) or because of Section 139’s seventh clause (1).The Seventh Proviso to Section 139(1) is all about the compulsory filing of return of income in case of high-value transactions or expenditure.

  • The last step is to fill in your bank details. And then, you will be directed to a new page to file your returns. There, you have to confirm the summary of your returns & validate it. Once this process is done, you need to send the hardcopy of it to the IT Department.

  • Yayy, and your Income Tax Return is filed!
