ITR-V stands for ‘Income Tax Return–Verification’ Form. It is a one page document. ITR-V is received when you e-file your Income Tax Return without using a digital signature. It is received from the Income Tax Department to your registered email ID. Since the digital signature is not present so Income Tax Department needs to verify your tax return. On receipt of Form ITR-V, you need to sign the copy of the form with ‘blue ink’ and post it to the Income Tax Department CPC, Bangalore. This is an important step to complete the filing process.
Follow the below mentioned steps carefully to complete your e-filing process:
Dark black ink should be used to print ITR-V form. It must be legible to eyes.
Sign within the box provided for it so that bar code and numbers below it are clearly visible.
Do not staple the form. The portion of the ITR-V containing bar code should not be folded.
Use a white A4 size envelope to enclose the form.
Send the envelope to CPC Bangalore via speed post or ordinary post within 120 days of filing return. You cannot courier it.
You do not need to send any supporting documents along with the ITR-V. Just the one page signed ITR-V. The envelope should be send to Income Tax Department CPC Post Box No.1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore-560100, Karnataka.
Once CPC Bangalore receives your ITR-V, it will send you an email acknowledgement.
That’s it! You have done it! Remember not to miss the deadline of 120 days mentioned above otherwise your e-filed tax return will be considered invalid. In that case, you will be required to file your tax return again.
