e-Filing: Give Adhaar, No Need To Send ITR-V

The  use of Adhaar will make the e-filing of income tax return fully online.
The quick e-File has made the income tax return filing very easy even for
non-tech savvy person. Now the integration with Adhaar will make the income tax
return e-Filing a 15 minute exercise. The bottleneck of online return filing is
the ITR-V, hopefully after the use of Adhaar the ITR-V may become history.

What is ITR-V

The ITR-V is a legal
proof of income return e-filing by you. Since income tax often turns into the legal case,
the income tax department needs ‘verified’ and ‘authentic’ income tax return
from the taxpayer. The online income return e-filing does not contain your
signature. There is a digital signature, but it is very costly for
individual taxpayers. Therefore, you need to send a physical copy of income tax
return form with your signature it it. It gives a valid proof to the income tax
department.
