Although the Income Tax Return (ITR) filing deadline for AY 2022-23 has passed. But the taxpayers whose ITR needs to be audited are on October 31, 2022. Those whose ITR does not need audit are eligible for an ITR refund.
However, taxpayers who did not file their income tax return (ITR) by the July 31, 2022 deadline could still file a late return.
It should be noted that late filing can be filed with a penalty of Rs 5,000 plus interest on the website of the income tax department.
After 10 days of filing RTI, the tax department allows taxpayers to check the status of their refund.
Under sections 237 to 245 of the Income Tax Act 1961 refunds of tax may be granted where the amount of tax paid by a person (or a person on their behalf) is greater than the chargeable amount.
Taxpayers awaiting their ITR return have the option to check the refund status online through the official portal of the Income Tax Department – incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in or the National Securities Depository e-Governance website Limited (NSDL), tin.tin.nsdl.com.
The Income Tax Return (ITR) is a form used to report your income and taxes, report net tax payable and report gross taxable income during a fiscal year to the Income Tax Department of the India.
For every Indian individual, it is mandatory to pay tax on his taxable income every fiscal year.
In accordance with the income tax rules, it is stipulated that in case of excess tax paid or not under the taxable income bracket, a person is entitled to receive a refund of income tax from the Indian Income Tax Department.
However, filing an ITR after the due date may incur a penalty of Rs 5,000 for those with an annual income above Rs 5 lakh if they file their ITR before 31st December of the assessment year .
