Have you submitted your tax returns? Here’s how to use Aadhaar OTP to e-Verify your ITR.

Every person who earns money is obliged to file an Income Tax Return (ITR), which is a form that reports their annual earnings to the IRS. The form can be used by you or any other taxpayer to report your income, expenses, tax deductions, and investments, among other things. The time for filing AY 2021-22 Income Tax Returns (ITR) is coming, and those who have not yet done so should be advised that the deadline is December 31, 2021. There are two methods for submitting IT: offline and online. The Internal Revenue Service allows you to file your tax return electronically (e-filing).

You must e-verify the ITR after it has been filed to complete the return filing procedure. An ITR is considered invalid by the IRS if it is not confirmed within the timeframe specified. e-Verification is the most convenient and time-saving method of validating your ITR. The e-Verify function is available to both registered and non-registered users on the e-Filing site.

You can use one of several methods to e-Verify your tax return. For e-Verification, you can use a Digital Signature Certificate, an Aadhaar OTP, an Electronic Verification Code (using a bank account or a demat account), an Electronic Verification Code (using a bank ATM – offline mode), or Net Banking.

Make sure your cell phone is linked to Aadhaar if you want to e-verify your ITR using Aadhaar OTP after you’ve already filed it. Also, double-check that your PAN is linked to your Aadhaar number.

How to use Aadhaar OTP to e-verify ITR:

Step 1: Visit https://www.incometax.gov.in to access your e-filing account

Step 2: Select the e-Verify Return option from the quick links menu.

Step 3: On the e-Verify screen, select I’d like to verify using an OTP sent to an Aadhaar-registered cellphone number and click Continue.

Step 4: On the Aadhaar OTP screen, check the box next to I agree to confirm my Aadhaar Details, then click Generate Aadhaar OTP.

Step 5: After entering the 6-digit OTP received to your Aadhaar-registered cellphone number, click Validate.

Step 6: It’s important to remember that the OTP is only good for 15 minutes. You’ll have three chances to type in the right OTP. An OTP expiry countdown counter will appear on the screen, notifying you when the OTP will expire. When you click Resend OTP, a new OTP will be produced and sent.

Step 7: You’ll see a page with a success message and a Transaction ID. Please keep the Transaction ID on hand in case you need it again. You will also receive a confirmation message to the email address and phone number you supplied on the e-Filing portal.
