Online filing of your Income Tax Return for the Year 2021-22

Recently, the Income Tax department announced via Twitter that the Central Board of Direct Taxes has granted one-time relief for verification of the e-filed Income Tax Report (ITR). This is for the Assessment Year 2020-21. The online filing of the Income Tax Return is known as e-filing.

CBDT offers one-time relief for verification of electronic-filed ITRs (AY 2020-21) that are pending due to nonsubmission ITR-V forms or pending verification,” Income Tax India tweeted.
