Edit Profile Details on Income Tax portal

Taxpayers should register themselves on the incometax.gov.in i.e Income Tax Portal, since you can access documents, communications with the ITD etc.

Once you have registered yourself on the Income Tax Portal, you might have some updates such as email id, contact number, address, etc.

  1. Hi @Dia_malhotra

    ITD have launched the portal yesterday night. Due to heavy traffic some of the features are not working properly. It will be resumed soon.

    Stay tuned with us. Will update you with every feature new portal has!

    In the meantime, you can check out all the features in the below post

  2. Hi @Niral_Koradia, this can help

  3. Hi, @Nireka Thank you for your response. Is there any place where it announces whether it has been completed or not? I’m wondering about the last date of the filing.

  4. @Niral_Koradia, we are expecting it around mid-August. The last date of filing ITR when Tax Audit is not Applicable for AY 2021-22 is 30th September 2021.

    You can follow us on Twitter to get updates about new releases and ITR filing

  5. HI @Nireka Hope you are doing well ! Do you happen to know the status for enabling E-Filling ? Is it still pending from ITD side or from quicko’s technical side ?

  6. Hey @Niral_Koradia, the ITD has published the schemas for Income Tax Return and you will be able to prepare the ITR on Quicko. However, we are still awaiting APIs that are required to enable ITR filing from ITD. ITR filing will be soon enabled on Quicko.
    Stay tuned for all the exciting product feature updates next week!
