Income Tax Refund: How to Claim

1.     File your income tax return: Ensure that you have filed your income tax return for the relevant assessment year. You can file your return online through the Income Tax Department's official website (,

2.     Verify your return: After filing your return, you need to verify it. There are several ways to verify your return, such as electronic verification through Aadhaar OTP, net banking, or by sending a physical copy of the ITR-V to the Centralized Processing Center (CPC) in Bengaluru within 120 days of e-filing.

3.     Wait for processing: Once your return is filed and verified, it will go through a processing stage by the Income Tax Department. They will review your return, validate the information provided, and calculate the refund amount, if applicable.

4.     Intimation of processing: After the processing is complete, the Income Tax Department will issue intimation under Section 143(1) of the Income Tax Act. This intimation will contain details of your income, deductions, tax liability, and any refund due to you.

5.     Respond to any discrepancies: If you receive an intimation and there are any discrepancies or errors in the calculation of your refund, you need to respond within the specified timeframe. You can either agree with the intimation or file a rectification request if corrections are required.

6.     Provide bank account details: If your refund amount is determined and there are no discrepancies, you will need to provide your bank account details for the refund to be credited. The Income Tax Department encourages taxpayers to link their PAN (Permanent Account Number) with their bank account to facilitate direct credit of the refund.

7.     Track your refund: You can track the status of your refund by visiting the Income Tax Department's website and using the "Refund/Demand Status" option. Alternatively, you can also call the Income Tax Department's helpline for assistance in tracking your refund.

8.     Receive the refund: Once the refund is processed, the Income Tax Department will transfer the refund amount directly to your bank account. You will receive an SMS or email notification regarding the credit.
