  • After the Income tax return filing, it must be e-verified through net-banking, or EVC process on mobile number and via email. Only after the verification is received, the income tax department will process your income tax return.

How has the Income Tax Return been processed by the department?

(ITR V must be signed with blue ink) Once the signed ITR V is received by the CPC (Central Processing Center), acknowledgment is sent on the registered e-mail id of the taxpayer.

  • In case of ITR V is physically sent then you must ensure that you’ve received a mail confirming receipt from the CPC (Central Processing Center).

  • Processing of Income Tax Return

  • Intimation reflecting no refund and no tax payable under Section 143(1)
  • If intimation under Section 143(1) shows that there is no refund and tax payable then we can say that income tax return was processed by the department without any refund or additional tax payable. Therefore no further action is demanded.

  • Intimation of notice under Section 143(1)
  • The intimation of the notice sent will contain the e-filing acknowledgment number, CPC reference number, etc., along with the details of income and taxes paid by the taxpayer and taxes computed by the department.
