Taxpayers need to submit a confirmation response for their filing/non-filing of ITR. Transactions of the taxpayer who have not filed return of income for a specific assessment year and have the potential tax liability or who are under obligation to file a return of income, are displayed for feedback. Hence, the e-Campaign intends to examine whether the identified person who has not yet filed a return of income in the particular assessment year is liable to file the same.
Therefore, after navigating to the e-Campaign Non-Filing of Return, you can submit the response on filing of income tax return by following the below given steps.
Steps to Submit confirmation Response on Filing of ITR
- Go to the response column in the compliance portal
Under the response column, the drop-down list will provide the following options:
– ITR has been filed
– ITR has not been filed
- If the option selected is “ITR has been filed,”
You need to provide the following information:
– Mode of Filing
– Date of Filing
– Acknowledgment Number
– Circle/Ward and City (only if mode of filing is paper filed)
- If the option selected is “ITR has not been filed“
Then the next step is to provide one of the following reasons, using the drop-down list:
- If Option selected is “Return under preparation“
If the return is under preparation and could not be filed so far because of any reason, the taxpayer should select this option and then submit it.
- If Option selected is “Not liable to file return of income“
When the taxpayer claims that he is not liable to file a return of income, this option should be selected by clicking the submit option.
- Thus, after submitting the response on filing of Income Tax Return (ITR), taxpayer needs to click on “Back” option.
This will navigate the taxpayer to e-Campaign – Non filing of return screen. To complete the response, taxpayer needs to submit the feedback against the information by clicking “Information Confirmation.”
You can view the notice and post a reply in the section “View and Submit Compliance.” Under the “View and Submit Compliance” tab, you will find a “Filing of Income Tax return” option through which you can provide the response related to ITRs. You can either choose: “ITR has been filed” or “ITR has not been filed”.
In case, no response is received within 30 days of the issue of this intimation, the return of income will be processed after making the necessary adjustment(s) u/s 143(1)(a) of Income Tax Act, 1961 without providing any further opportunities in this matter.
The identified non-filers are informed by SMS, e-mails, and letters in batches. In case a notice is issued, the assessee can view detailed information on the income tax e-Filing portal by logging into the account. You can also file a response on the portal.
