Notification for Extension of date for recqipt of ITR-Vs in CPC, Bengaluru. for the cases of AY 2012-13 and 2011-12 received in e-filed in FY 2012-13.
There are many taxpayers who have uploaded their Income Tax Returns electronically (without digital signature Certificate) for A.Y. 2011-12 [filed during F.Y. 2012-13 and for ITRs of A.Y. 2012-13 [filed on or after 1.4.2012], but have either not filed the corresponding ITR-V or have filed it with the local Income-tax office. ITR-V is accepted only at the Centralized Processing Center (CPC) of the Income-tax Department at Bengaluru by ordinary or speed post. Therefore, a final opportunity is being given to such taxpayers to regularize their Income-tax returns.
All such taxpayers may mail the ITR-V, by 31st October, 2013, by ordinary post or speed post at Post Bag No. 1, Electronic City Post Office, Bengaluru -560100 (Karnataka). Taxpayers who have filed their ITR-V with the local Income-tax office may again mail their ITR-V to the CPC by 31st October,2013. Those taxpayers who have earlier mailed their ITR-V, but have not received the acknowledgement e-mail from the CPC, may mail their ITR-V to the CPC again.
The ITR-V form should be mailed to the CPC only at the above address by ordinary post or speed post. Taxpayers may note that no other place or form of delivery will be accepted.
Taxpayers may also note that without acknowledgement of the ITR-V from the CPC it would not be possible for the Income-tax Department to process the Income-tax returns or issue any refunds therefrom, as these would be treated as not having been filed with the Department.
