Now that we have an option of e-verify, still many a cases we send our acknowledgement to Income tax. Chances are that our ITR-V may get rejected or receipt may get delayed if not sent accordingly. Below are the things to remember before you send your ITR-V.

  • Please use Ink Jet /Laser printer to print the ITR-V Form. Use of Dot Matrix printer should be avoided.
  • The ITR-V Form should be printed only in black ink. Do not use any other ink option to print ITR-V.
  • Ensure that print out is clear and not light print/faded copy.
  • Please do not print any water marks on ITR-V. The only permissible watermark is that of “Income tax Department” which is printed automatically on each ITR V.
  • The document that is mailed to CPC should be signed in Original.
  • Photocopy of signatures will not be accepted.
  • The signatures or any handwritten text should not be written on Bar code.
  • Bar code and numbers below barcode should be clearly visible.
  • Only A4 size white paper should be used.
  • Avoid typing anything on the reverse side of the paper.
  • Perforated paper or any other size paper should be avoided.
  • Do not use stapler on ITR-V Acknowledgement.
