ITR for last financial year 2021-22 for filing income tax returns is due on July 31. About 5.83 crore people filed tax returns across the country. If you have filed ITR and are waiting for refund, you can easily check online.
The Income Tax Department will process the refund within 20 to 45 days after filing the ITR. But some people get refund in 10 to 14 days. But if the refund is not received after 21 days, check the IT returns again.
If the Income Tax Department is accepting and processing your IT returns, you can find the details online. To know the status, PAN card, Aadhaar card and digital mobile number should be present.
How to Check Refund Status
Go to www.incometax.gov.in website.
Go to account with PAN card details and login.
Select View Filed Returns in the Income Tax Return section.
You can check the status of your recently filed IT returns by selecting View Details.
If you have filed a return for the previous financial year, you will receive an intimation letter from the Income Tax Department. IT department will send it to the registered e-mail id after the processing of IT returns is completed.
IT department will send you the intimation letter within nine months of the end of the financial year. Previously, this deadline was one year, but now the IT department sends the intimation letter within a few hours after filing the return. This deadline has been reduced by three months in the 2021 budget.
To open the intimation letter sent to this mail, you have to give the date of birth after giving the PAN number in small case. This includes tax exempt details.
