To ensure speedy refund, the taxpayer has to ensure that once the ITR-V is generated, the form is downloaded. One must then print the form in blue ink and send the signed form by ordinary/speed post to the Central Processing Centre (CPC), Bangalore. After receiving the signed ITR-V form, the CPC will send an e-mail, acknowledging the receipt of ITR-V to the e-mail ID stated in the return form. Also, the taxpayer will get an SMS on his mobile number.
If a taxpayer does not get any response from the department regarding receipt of ITR-V, he will have to send a fresh ITR-V to the CPC and get a receipt.
During e-filing, one must take precautions while entering data and re-verify all details entered before submitting/confirming the return.
Incorrect details may lead to a notice from the IT department. The taxpayer should verify that the Permanent Account Number (PAN), the amount of Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) and details of employer are correctly entered. Also, details about interest earned from fixed deposit and other income must be mentioned. The tax department usually checks these details through an automated process and compares them with their database.
