It is such a relief to be able to file tax returns as well as submit your ITR-V (that’s your Income Tax Return Verification Form) online via your bank account – it has made the process a whole lot simpler.

E-filing of tax returns is one of the options for direct taxpayers in India. So how do you go about it?

Details required before logging onto the site

The first thing you need is a net banking facility and the provision to make e-payments. If you are a first-time user, i.e. if you have never e-filed your return before, you will need to create an account on the Income Tax Department’s website – Keep your PAN Card nearby as you will need it to create a username and password.

The website will extract some of your details from your PAN Card, while you must enter other personal details yourself. Be careful when you mention your email address. This is important as all communication pertaining to e-filing will happen via the email address you provide. Once you have registered, an email will be sent to your registered mail confirming the activation of your account. With this done, you are ready to file your income return online. You must now choose the appropriate ITR form.
