New Delhi: If you are eligible for an income tax refund, then it’s important to file for an income tax return (ITR) for that particular year. It will be processed once the tax department confirms the refund status through a notice after which you will receive this income tax refund.
It is important to note that you received the intimation notice under section 143 (1) of the Income-tax Act, 1961. The last extended date to file returns for FY 2020-21 is currently December 31, 2021.
The deadline was extended for most individuals from the earlier deadline of September 30, 2021, to December 31, 2021.
Meanwhile, customers of the State Bank of India interested in filing their Income Tax Returns (ITR) can do so with Tax2Win on the YONO app. The country’s top lender has recently announced that its customers can file their ITR on the YONO app.
“Do you want to file an ITR? You can do it FREE with Tax2win on YONO. All you need is 5 documents. Download now: sbiyono.sbi,” SBI tweeted.
