Send ITR-V to Income Tax Department, CPC Bangalore

By Hiral Vakil on February 11, 2020

The Income Tax Return(ITR) filing process is not complete until the filed ITR is verified by the taxpayer. The taxpayer can either e-verify the ITR or can send signed ITR-V (Acknowledgement) to the income tax department. If e-verification of ITR is not possible then the taxpayer needs to send signed ITR-V to the Income Tax Department within 120 days at CPC Bangalore.

Step-by-step process to send ITR-V (Acknowledgment) to CPC Bangalore:

Step 1: Take a print out of ITR-V. Print out should be only in black ink. Make sure that the printed copy is readable. Please use the Ink Jet/ Laser Printer to print the ITR-V. Use of dot matrix printer should be avoided. Do not print any watermarks on printed ITR-V.

Step 2: Sign the ITR-V. Use blue ink pen for signature.

Step 3: Photocopy of the signature will not be accepted. Signature of a taxpayer should not be on Barcode. Barcode and numbers below barcode should be clearly visible in ITR-V.

Step 4: Do not write anything on the back of the paper. And use A4 size paper. For Original and Revised Returns ITR-V, do not print them back to back. Do not staple the forms.

Step 5: Enclose your ITR-V in a white A4 size envelope and send the envelope either through speed post or ordinary post. Do not send it via registered post.

Step 6: No need to submit any supporting documents or annexures along with ITR-V.

Step 7: Send the envelope to the following address within 120 days from the date of filing of ITR: Centralized Processing Centre, Income Tax Department, Bengaluru 560500.

Once ITR-V will reach the CPC Bangalore, you will receive an email confirmation of the same. Your ITR will be processed by the IT Department once it is verified.

Yes, any number of ITR-Vs can be sent in one envelope. Just don’t staple them together. And make sure that barcode of each ITR-V does not get folded.

2. Can I send ITR-V multiple times to CPC Bangalore?

Yes, ITR-V of a particular financial year can send multiple times to CPC Bangalore if you do not receive a confirmation email from the IT Department.

3. What if I forget to send ITR-V within 120 days from the filing of ITR?
