Important: e-verify your income tax return within 30 days, else your return will be considered as not filed.

Step 1: Visit incometaxefiling website & log-in to your account [by entering your User ID (which is PAN) and Password]. After that, click on tab “My Account” & from the drop down menu, select option “e-Verify Return”.


Step 2: Now you’ll be able to see the list of ITR(s) filed as shown in the screen below. Here click on “e-Verify” button.


Step 3: Here, from the options, select Option 3 to e-verify ITR using Aadhaar OTP. After this, click on option to “generate Aadhaar OTP” & if you already have received one then select “I already have Aadhaar OTP”.


Step 4: An OTP will be sent to your registered mobile number( with Aadhar) like the screenshot shown below. This password is valid for 10 minutes only & after this you need to generate new OTP if ITR isn’t e-verified.

Insert this OTP & click on “Submit” button.

Step 6: In the above screenshot, on clicking the acknowledgement number, your ITR-V will start to download.

This is a ITR-V acknowledgement form & it is different from the pre e verification ITR-V Form. Here at the bottom a line is given as, “Do Not Send This Acknowledgement To CPC, Bengaluru”. This line represents that your ITR has been e-verified.
