The due date of filing your Income Tax Return for Financial Year 2017-18 or Assessment Year 2018-19 is 31st July 2018. Income tax return can be filed using the paper mode or via the e-filing mode. Assessees using the e-filing mode have the option to file their return with or without using a digital signature or using the Electronic Verification Code (EVC). As individuals, when you file your income tax return without using a digital signature, then you are required to send the signed copy of ITR-V to Bangalore. ITR-V is an acknowledgement of return filed electronically.

However, as individuals, you can file your tax return using Electronic Verification Code to avoid verification of your return through a traditional route (sending ITR-V to Bangalore CPC).
