The last date to file the Income-tax return for the financial year 2018-19 is already over. The deadline was August 31, 2019. There are times when people resort to last minute to file their returns, they tend to commit mistakes in their basic details. In order to rectify these mistakes, one need not file the revised return.
According to the income tax department’s website, “After uploading of the ITR, if any change occurs in taxpayers Bank Account, Address, Mobile Number and e-mail id, then the taxpayer can update these changes through ‘Change ITR Form Particulars’. Any update can be made only prior to processing of the return.”
Usually, the income tax department takes a month, from the date of filing, to process the tax return. For instance, if you wish to make changes in your permanent address or want to update the mobile number, you can do it online. Such a mistake in basic details results in a non-receipt of the refund. Also, while rectifying it online, one doesn’t need to file a revised ITR for this.
