Filing income tax returns (ITR) can now not be a long process because the income tax department has currently launched a new lighter version of its e-filing web site, which will be accessed by the most web site itself.
The new facility, that became accessible to all or any registered users from quarter day, is aimed to be notably helpful for taxpayers who access the web site solely to file ITR returns.
In order to modify fast and easy ITR filing, the govt has extended the maturity for filing ITR for the year 2018-19 until August thirty one.
- The left side of the income tax e-filing website’s homepage has a new section ‘Quick ITR filing’, which would take you to the lite portal.
- On the ‘Lite’ portal, you can file ITR, complete its e-verification process, download pre-fill XML, view form 26AS (for tax deducted at source credit) and check e-filed income tax returns (without XML / ITR / ITR-V download options).
- If one wants to use other features like e-proceeding, e-nivaran, compliance, worklist and profile settings, they would have to access the full version of the portal by clicking on “Portal Login” button in e-filing home page.
