EVC Verification – Income Tax Filing

In terms of Income Tax regulations, taxpayers are obliged to complete their tax returns for the financial year if the income tax exceeds the basic exemption limit. Completion of income tax return must be completed by confirming return by EVC verification mode within 120 days from the date of tax return. The Department of Taxation has launched an e-verification verification program to help taxpayers verify their forms as soon as possible. This method of making EVC and ITR verification can only be used by taxpayers earning less than Rs. 5,00,000. In addition, the taxpayer should not be entitled to any refunds. E verification is done using a user-generated Electronic Verification Code (EVC) using a variety of methods. In this article, we will briefly consider the process of making EVC.
