e-File Income tax return For AY 2014-15 – Step By Step Procedure

 

e-Filing income tax return is very easy for salaried person. If you still did not try it or you avoid technology, give e-return a try. Within 15 minutes you will be able to file income tax e return online. Through the online procedure not only you will save 300-1000 rupees, but also you need not to share your earnings with anyone. Also you will get your income tax refund quickly. Let us see how easy it is.

‘Register’ or ‘Log in’ Income tax India  efiling Portal

To efile your income tax return there is a separate website other than the Incometaxindia.gov.in. This website is incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. Visit this website.

Site may not open in chrome browser due to ‘invalid  security certificate’. In that case you should try to open it in mozilla firefox or internet explorer. If You are filing your return first time you must register with your PAN number. It is a one time process, don’t hesitate it as easy as opening a facebook account.

Handling A Peculiar Situation

If you have filed your return earlier through chartered accountant, he might registered you. In this case you will not be able to register yourself as your CA has already used your PAN as user ID.  So just dial to your CA and ask the password. If for any reason you can’t get password, use the ‘forgot password‘ option.

How To Reset Your Password

Remember your PAN is the user ID. It will give you three modes to reset your password.

efiling of income tax return

    • In the first case you have to answer the secret question. This one is the easiest one, but if the CA has set it, you will not be able to answer.
    • The second mode is  the digital signature, most  of the  people don’t have this (it is costly to maintain one).
    • In the third option you need to give your bank account number and assessment year. You can get your acknowledgment number from intimation mail of income tax department. Your CA should have provided this intimation mail.

It may also happen that CA has not filled bank account number in previous year’s return, then you can’t use this option.

Also if you give everything correctly the password will be sent to the earlier provided email. It may also happen that CA has given his email address while income tax return efiling .This means that refund cheque would come to his address. Further he can ask a share from refund.

In my office almost everyone who has used the service of CA is facing this problem. CA has not given the password. He has given his email address in the accounts of clients. Also, he did not give bank account numbers in the previous return. He has done everything to stonewall his clients if they try to file their return themselves. Earlier CA used to give his address on the returns. So that they can again ask some cut from the refund.

However the situation has reversed this year. The income tax department has set limit for email ID and mobile number to be used in different accounts. Now CA will be forced to give your mobile number and email ID while filing the return. This will mean that you will get keys in your hand.

But if you can’t get your details for any reason, don’t worry, there is an easier alternative. Mail your details to income tax department stating your inability to log in. They will send you the new password however it will take  2-3 days.

During the helping to my colleague’s returns, I found that log in is the  biggest deterrent of this procedure.  But again this is one time problem. Once you get a password, there will not be looking back.

How To e-File Income Tax e-Return

After Log in you can see your own page where you can file your return online, see your previous returns, and change your personal details. I advise to check your personal details first. If CA has created your account, it is  a must. Specially check your mobile number and email address.

Now lets go ahead to e-file the income tax return. Look at left hand upper corner of the page, there is a link for quick filing. Go through this link now, within ten minutes your efiling will be complete.

income tax return efiling submit

 

You should have these documents or details before proceeding

  • Form 16
  • Other income details
  • Bank account number
  • IFSC code
  • Personal details

Now, click on the quick e-File ITR link.

online income tax return

  • Choose ITR-1 if you have salary income.
  • In most of the cases assessment year would be the current financial year.  If you are filing late return for one year earlier,  choose the previous year as assessment year.
  • There will be three options address. If your address has not been changed recently, click on
  • for second option. You will get the opportunity to verify and rectify this.
  • Most of the people don’t have digital signature, then choose ‘NO’

Fill Personal Details

After submitting you will see ITR-1 form. In this form most of your  personal detail  would be already there. You have to  only fill Sex, Country, email address, and mobile number. If your address has changed then change the address also.

Income Tax Efiling Status

In the next step of online income tax efiling you need to tell about your filing status.

  • A18-  Private company employee should choose ‘Other’ in ‘Employer Category’ column.
  • A19 – You can leave the tax status column, as it will change according to its calculation.
  • A20- Those people who were more than 180 days in India during the  last financial year should choose the Resident option in residential status column.
  • A21- If you are filing your return before the last date, select ‘Before the due date’ else ‘After the due date’. You can file the income tax return after the date but there are many potential problems as well.
  • In most cases, your return should be original unless you are filing revised return for the same financial year.
  • If you are filing revised return, you should give additional information about the previous return.

Give Income Details

After efilling the first page don’t forget to save the draft. On the next page you have to fill the income details and tax saving investments. So keep your form-16 handy. Keep in mind that for filing income tax return your ‘income from salary’ is not the gross income. In Form 16 it must be under column ‘Income Chargeable Under The Head ‘Salaries’. Take that figure from form 16.

 

efiling INcome tax return India

 

If you are earning from house property or bank deposit (interest more than 10,000) then you have to fill this as well. For  these other income tax should be already paid.  If not, deposit the tax online and get the details. You should give those details with the return.
Now you have to give details of expense or investment which are eligible for tax deductions. If you have declared all the details to your employer correctly, you should not worry, it will be on Form-16. Take the figures from form-16 and fill the return.

Tax Saving Investment/Expense Details

In this section of income tax efiling you have to fill the details of your tax saving investments. There are many tax saving options. I assume that you must have chosen some from 10 best tax saving option. Add them up and fill the total of 80C investment in one column. These 80C investment may be

 

There are some more tax saving option also. Health insurance is out of the 80C. You should fill it in column of 80D.

Taxes Paid Details

After filling your income details and deductions now you should give the information about the tax deducted at source and advance tax if any. On this page there are three sections, but if you have only salary income and TDS has been deducted for same, you have to worry about the first section only.  In your form-16 there must be the TAN number of the employer. Also check the correct name of the employer in the form-16. Again, you have to fill taxable salary for the year. It should be the same as column B1. Form 16 has the details of TDS. Companies normally submits TDS every quarter, so there should be 4 entry of TDS. You have to give the total TDS.

 

income tax return efiling

 

If you have any other income and tax has been deducted before the payment, give details in the second section. Tax deductor should give you these details as your company gives in form-16. In case you have submitted some tax yourself (for property income or interest income) then fill the third section. After this page you are almost done.

Tax Payable/Refund Status

On the next page you can see your tax details. If you are eligible for any tax refund it will be there before Refund column. It is also possible that your company have deducted less tax for any reason then there will be tax payable amount. In this case you have to pay your remaining tax first and then e-file income tax return meanwhile save your filled form as draft. Ideally, there should be zero in tax payable and refund column.

Bank Account Details

In the next section you have to give your bank account details. If you have any refund then these details become very important for speedy reimbursement. You have to also give IFSC code. Cheque leaf contains IFSC code. You can also  get if from here. Now submit it, but don’t forget to take printout of ITR-V. Sign in  the ITR-V and send it CPC Banglore. Full address will be in the ITR-V. Send ITR-V only by simple post.
With this your online income tax return efiling is complete. First timer may take some time to understand and fill it, but in later years it will be definitely a cakewalk. Further you can also e-File income tax return of your acquaintances and relatives also. Did you find this how to efile income tax return procedure useful?

    I am working in a PSU. I went in a LLTC tour in the last week of March’2014. But, I did not get the TAX benefit in Form 16, issued by my company. Now, I want to avail that benefit in IT return. Where should I enter my traveling expenses in IT return. Pls help me.

  4. Devdatta says:

    Hello Mr. Mishra,
    It’s a nice article explaining the ITR filing you have put. I had filed the return in previous years and find it ITR1 easy now.
    However, I have query on ITR2. I have shares of foreign company and sold them in FY13-14. Now as I understand, the gain will be calculated as of shares of unlisted company. How do we put this in ITR 2? whether it will be capital gains (LTCG) as Indian shares/asset in Schedule CG or in Schedule OS or Schedule FSI? It will be helpful if you can give the details.

    Thanks

  10. Goyal M says:

    Hello Sir,
    I have a FD income of 70K and i am under 30% slab.
    Bank has deducted tax as per 10% tax calculation
    Now I have to pay remaining 20% tax.
    Ques:
    1. Should I declare “income from other source” as 70k or 60 k (70- 10k (10 k is free from tax ?))
    2. I am seeing that 234B and 234C interst is applied in return calculation? Do I liable to pay this extra interst amount?
    I want to understand what is the way to get rid of this from next time. Since bank will always deduct 10% and I always need to pay the extra amount late with interst panalty?
    How should i do from next time?

    • Devdatta says:

      I am not tax professional but based on my knowledge and experience I will try to answer this.
      1. FD interest income is not free from tax. Only thing is bank will deduct tax if it goes above 10K, that too 10% on whole amount. (e.g. if the interest is 11K, TDS will be 1100+ed.cess.) So you will have to show full 70K as income from other source. Show the TDS amount by Bank in TDS section and remaining amount you have to pay before filing the return.
      2. As I understand, tax if more than 10K should be paid as advance tax by 15th Mar of that FY, else interest penalty is applied. Hence, you can calculate approximate interest for the year (some banks provide that details too) and pay the tax before 15th Mar.

  11. Goyal M says:

    Hello sir,
    I have a query:
    I have 70k income from FD interest. Bank have deducted 10% tax. And I am in 30% slab.
    So now I have to pay remaining tax of 20% on this.
    So ques:
    1. Should i declare the income from other sources as 70k or 60k(70k – 10k (Up to 10K is free from tax))
    2. Also in calculation there is 234B and 234C interest is getting added automatically, Am I liable to pay interest on tax?

  15. Krishna Patil says:

    Hello,

    I received form 16 A for TDS for interest on fixed deposit. The interest amount is Rs. 3500 but the tax deducted is Rs. 1400. I fail to understand why so much tax was cut even when interest doesn’t exceed Rs.10000.

    1> Can I claim a refund through ITR 1 ?

    2> If yes, then how should I fill ITR 1 so that I get the refund?

    3> Should I fill the amount of Rs.3500 in the column of income from other sources( Column B3)?

    Regards

  16. Selvamani says:

    Hi Chandrakanth,

    Thanks for your service. Actually I have a tax payable amount of Rs.2630 ; but i efiled it already thinking that i can make the payment later. now what should i do?. Thanks in advance for your reply

  17. Su Bha says:

    Hi,

    while filing returns, the Tax Details tab automatically shows the pf income from my previous employer as 30k and TDS for that as 4500. Should i add 30k also as 'Income from slary' along with income from my current emplyer, while declaring income?

  18. One more question sir , when i saw my Form 16 ,it also didn't include HRA exemption ,actually i forgot to provide that also.

    Is it possible while filing returns I can mention those and deduct the amount from taxable income?

    If yes do i need to send those rent receipts to IT department ?

    please advise.

    Details for TDS2 are picked up from Form 26 AS which is still more useful for those who use this efiling page. Do we have to fill the few blanks columns of TDS2 like ‘unique TDS Certificate no. deducted year.

    Hi Sir,

    I have made some charitable donations during last year which was not being considered in Form-16. Also, I have a house loan which is being jointly owned by me and my father. But, total EMI payments is being done by me only. Because of this, only half of the Interest is being considered for deduction. Would like to know whether I can claim full deduction.
    So, now while filing IT-Return, do i need to attach any documents for claiming Tax refunds.

    I can empathize with your wish. We should get some refund as we give our time to filing the return. Some people gets.

    Hi Sir,
    I have worked for 2 employers in this financial year, hence have 2 form 16 details to fill. Can you please let me know how to go about it. Thanx in advance

    • Hi Ankit

      This is not a problem. In the income from salary column you should fill the total from both the form16. For 80C value you should take the value from both the form16 and fill the total value.

      In case of TDS details you should fill the tax deduction from both the employer. In SCH TDS 1 you should fill the tax deduction detail from the first form 16. Then add another row and fill the tax deduction by the second employer. That’s it. You are done. Now you can enjoy a hot coffee in this wet weather. 

    Dear Sir,
    I have to fill IT return for AY 2014-2015, but i got confused which form should i fill ITR1 or ITR2?
    My bank interest+ FD interest is approx. 1, 20, 000. Should I fill this value in ITR1 under “Income from other sources” and claimed the benefit of Rs. 10000 under the 80TTA. It means 1,20,000-10,000 = 1,10,000 will be net interest on which I have to pay tax? Is my approach correct?
    Please advice/

    thanks and regards
    Ashutosh

    • Hi Ashutosh

      You are absolutely right. Please Go ahead. Do you find online filing process easy?

      Dear Sir,
      The step by step process illustrated by you is very easy and clears every doubt.
      Thank you for your advice.
      One more thing i would like to known is is the meaning of Column D22: Exempt income only for reporting purposes (if exempt income is more than 5000 use ITR2). Here what is the meaning of exempt income more than 5000. Is it include bank interest more than 5000?
      Please clarify?
      thanks and regards
      Ashutosh

      • Hi Ashutosh
        The exempted income is dividend and agriculture income. These are taxfree income. But you should report.

        Regards

          Dear Chandrakant Mishra sir,
          Thank you for your help..
          I also have similar question.. I want to file tax return online for financial year 13-14…
          I have earned interest from bank — around 1 lac and
          tax deducted is around 10,000 Rupees..

          I want to file tax return only for this — I have nothing else.. no employment in india — no other income in india..

          In this case, which one should I use?
          1) Quick e-File ITR — online
          2) ITR 1
          3) ITR 2

          Thank you in advance…

    I have some confusion in filling SCH TDS1 field – “Income from Salary (3)”.

    Online utility takes the value automatically from Form 26AS in this field and it is not same as “Income Chargeable under head salary” amount from Form 16 which is

    entered in B1.
    Automatically taken figure is net taxable income.

    What value SCH TDS1 should contain?

    Explanation:

    Item no. 6 in Form 16 i.e. Income chargeable under Head Salaries(3-5) is the amount entered in B1 field of return form.
    This amount is before Housing loan interest deductions and before deductions under chapter VIA.
    While automatically populated Salary Income in SCH TDS1 from form 26AS is net taxable income after Housing loan interest and chapter VIA deductions are subtracted.
    e.g.
    Income Chargeable under Head Salaries – Rs. 5,80,000 /-. This is filled in B1.

    Deductions under chapter VIA Rs. 1,00,000 / -
    Net Taxable income Rs. 4,74,000 /-

    Now B1 value is Rs. 5,80,000/-
    I see that automatic value picked from Form 26AS is Rs. 4,74,000 /- in SCH TDS1 income column.

    What value SCH TDS1 should contain? I have spoken to an executive at TPRS helpline 1800-10-23738 and he suggested me not to change to automatically picked up value. I am confused now.

    What value SCH TDS1 should contain?

    Thanks and Regards

    • Hi Brar

      Indeed this is small thing. The value it picks automatically is the ‘income from salaries’ of the previous return. You have to change it with increased salary (Yes, Salary must have increased :-) ). Similarly the forth column also takes the value from the previous return. Change it with the latest total TDS. Now you will see everything goes right.You can check it with previous return.

      Cheers

      • Brar says:

        Sir, I have checked my previous return. This value does not match with the value in same column of previous return. This value is from 26AS of AY-2014-15 (i.e. Value after subtracting ‘Deductions under chapter VI-A’ from ‘Income under head salaries’)

        • Ok Brar Sahab

          This section is to be filled by you. Take your form 16 or TDS challan. search for the taxes paid and the taxable income. Fill them in column. That is it.

  50. amit says:

    hello

    I am filing return of this year, where should i put rent amount in investment

    • Hi Amit
      Let me explain the rent exemption in detail.

      Your expense on the rent is because of the job. If you don’t have the job you might live in your own house. Therefore you can deduct rent portion from the salary before producing it for taxation.
      But this deduction can’t be arbitrary. Your employer earmarks some portion of the salary for rent payment. This portion of the salary is called HRA (house rent allowance).

      Again, you can’t claim whole of the HRA for the deduction. There is a formula for considering rent deduction from the salary. This would be minimum of the following three options:
      Actual house rent allowance received from your employer
      Actual house rent paid by you minus 10% of your basic salary
      50% of your basic salary if you live in a metro or 40% of your basic salary if you live in a non-metro
      Now what you have to do?
      If you are salaried person and have the form 16, forget about the rent exemption. In the form 16 the company puts taxable income after deducting all the exemptions. you have to fill the taxable income in the ITR 1.

      Regards

  53. Dear Chandrakant
    Thanks for such a detailed explanation. I have filed the IT return for A.Y. 2013-14 on 05-08-2013.
    I am working with govt. sector. All my TDS were deducted and deposited on time. But after filing the IT return I got a demand for Rs 2160 under 234B Interest as Interest payable. I talked to CA and he told that demand under 234B Interest is for advance payment of tax which is not applicable in my case as I am in govt job and my TDS is deducted and deposited on time. I have called CPC no. of time but they say call after 7 days but after 7 days they again say call after 7 days.
    Due to this I am stuck and my ITR is incomplete till this day.
    I will be very thankful if you take me out of this quagmire.

    Regards
    Rajvir Bains

    • Hi Rajbir
      Don’t worry, If you have paid all taxes fairly then you should remain tension free. Write a registered letter to your assessment officer giving all the details and tell him about your employment.
      Also Do you have any other income in any previous year. It may happen that you have paid tax late in any previous year.
      Thanks

  54. Hi Rakesh

    You have got the gratuity amount and I assume that the amount would be according to the rules. This amount is exempted for tax purpose. Therefore you have to only mention this amount while filing tax return. You should use ITR2 and fill this amount under 'schedule EI' in the section 5.

    Regards
    Chandrakant Mishra

  55. Dear Chandrakant! Thank u very much for detailed and stet-by-step explanation by you… it is indeed very helpful for us….

    Hi,

    While filing the returns online, I went in “Quick e-File ITR” and selected “ITR-1″ as the form name but when I tried to fill the income details under “Income Details” tab, I found that there are no fields available online to enter deduction fields related to Section 10 like Allowance, Medical Reimbursement, LTA, etc. I am stuck because of this since last 2 days and even tried to get help from the customer care of https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in but got no help. Can you help me on how can I put the information related to Section 10 allowances? May be I am missing something here.

    Looking to get your views on this.

    Regards,
    Pankaj H.

    • Hi Pankaj
      Do you have Form 16 with you. If not you should get that. In the form 16 go the head ” income chargeable under the head of salaries’. It should be section 6. In this section the specified amount is after the considering those exemptions. Hence you have not to worry for that.
      If you have any further query please feel free to ask.

      Regards

    I am a govt. employee.I did not pay advance tax for 2013-2014 i.e up to 15th Sep. and 15th Dec2013. But paid advance tax Rs.10300 in Jan2014. My TDS was Rs.20009. While efile my return, in prepare and submit online return, I entered all details. The Total tax payable is shown correctly as 20009 as in form 16. After that it populated amounts in interest payable U/S 234B and 234C as 600 and 730 respectively. But I have corrected to zero as it is editable. Is my action correct or not?. if I submit efile, will it be correct at this stage? or will it attract the sections U/C 234B and 234C and get notified by ITD. What should i do? whether I have to pay Int.payable u/s 234b and 234c before e filing? then How to calculate them ? and How to Pay online?

  58. Nehal says:

    My annual salary is 3.5lakh and i got my form 16 from my company. Other than income i got 2000Rs from dividend of mutual fund and other stocks.
    I have to file my ITR 1, but i am not sure in which section should i put dividend amount in ITR-1 form.

    • Hi Nehal

      Under the ‘taxes paid and verification’ tab go to the D22 section and fill your dividend income there. This income is not taxable.

  59. Hi chandrakant,
    i have Rs 7000 in PF deduction which is mentioned in FORM 16 but my LIC premium of 100000 is not mentioned there as i did not inform to my Finance.So plz tell me how to fill ITR.?
    Can i show Rs. 107000 as 80C deduction and send the xerox of LIC premium receipt along with ITR receipt?

    • Hi Mohsin
      Good news for you. You can mention your investment in the income tax return. You must show all of your 80C expenses whether it is in the form 16. You will get the refund of tax. Keep the receipt safe with you. IT department can ask for verification.

      I am more concerned about the premium of 1 lakh for the LIC. What is your objective of this? You may loose money.

    • Hi Rohit
      You can file revised return including medical exemption. Fill again the return as i have told.After column 21 there is column where you have to choose the revised instead of orginal. In column 23 give details of your previous faulty return. also You have to fill the medical exemption. All other process remais remain same.

    I filled in the Income details as per the Form 16 that I received from my employer. But D9 to D11 (Total Interest u/s 234A, 234B, 234C) were automatically populated with values hence Total Tax & Interest differs from what I have in Form 16 to what the system generated. I have the option to change the values for D9 to D11. Should I make them as Zero and proceed? Request you to let me know how to proceed further. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Chandrakant

    I have a couple of questions.

    1. Does money received from freelancing work come under Other as well? This is apart from the Salary received from Employer.
    If yes, then how does that affect the filling up of the form.

    2. If investments are not declared to the employer early on then how to go about claiming the refund?

  63. ChandraKant Upadhyay says:

    I filed my ITR for FY-13-14 online. I got some interest( more than 10,000) on SB account which I declared under 80TTA and under other source income. While pay self assessment tax, I just chose a wrong Challan,instead of INCOME-TAX (OTHER THAN COMPANIES) challan no. 280, I paid it through 282( Interest tax). Now, after 10 months, I have received a notice for IT department under section 143 saying your ITR is not matching please pay the deficient amount(my self paid tax is not considered, instead, the same is demanded). However, the notice does say that amount X is miss matching under 300 major head and 24 minor head.
    Please advice me what should I do to change the minor and major heads rectified to 300 and 21( non-companies).

    Warm Regards
    Chandra Kant Upadhyay

    • Hi Chandrakant
      हवन करते हाथ जल गए!

      Now your redress authority is the assessing officer of income tax department. It is better to give a reply of your notice, apologizing for your inadvertent mistake. Attach proof of of your tax payment as well. The application will do the job, don’t worry.

    Hi, I have 3 Queries. Would be greatful if you can help.
    1. I have 2 From-16 in the AY 13-14. the first company has considered a 80C deduction of Rs. 16164 and the 2nd company has considered a 80C of Rs.1 Lakh. Do I need to make any alteration in teh “income chargeable under the head salaries” section?
    2. I have done the quick e-return filing but have realized that i need to make a change in the total taxable income. I have not yet sent the ITR V by post. Should i file for a revised return?
    3. The TDS section of the Quick e-file is pre-filled & the although the Tax deductions (column 5) are matching with Form 26As, the column 4 (“income chargeable under the head salaries”) amounts do not match. Should I just fill from Form 16?

    Thanks again!
    GP

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Girish

      1 – You can’t claim 80C deduction more than one lakh rupees. Check if you have claimed same amount or different expense/investment in both the companies. Again when you fill the return. you have tile give your total income (from both the companies)in a financial year. Your investment deduction will be also the total amount.
      2- You should file the revised return and then send the revised ITR-V.
      3- TDS section shows your previous year details. Many times it remains same that is why it is filled. But you should go to your form 16 of both the companies and fill the details separately in two rows. As your both the companies must have different TAN and Name.

      Cheers

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hello Dinesh
      You have landed yourself in some problem. I will advise if it is a small amount then don’t bother. Else you have to visit income tax office, submit an application with the affidavit after that wait for the refund. This process will take time as well as you have to spend some money also.

      There is no need to take print of ITR-1. ITR-V would have been mailed to you also. check your inbox. You can also download it from your efiling page. Don’t Worry, You have already submitted your return before deadline. Now you have 120 days to send signed ITR-V.
