How to open your ITR V / ITR Acknowledgement

By now, many of you would have filed several tax returns of your clients or your own companies or even your own returns. It has been brought to our notice that this year, whenever an ITR form is filed electronically without the digital signature, the system shows that the ITR-V has been e-mailed to the e-mail ID registered with the Income-tax Department’s web site. Thereafter, when the ITR-V is tried to be opened, the system asks for a password. This was creating problems as the password that is generally used by the tax payer to log onto the e-filing site does not work while opening the ITR-V.

Recently, the Income-tax Department has put up the following clarification on its website. This would help all of you in opening the ITR-V in case of returns filed electronically.

Information on how to open your ITRV/ITR ACK

Dear Tax Payer,

Please note that you will receive your ITRV/ITR ACK PDF file in a zip format. Please note that the ITRV/ITR ACK PDF document is password protected to ensure it is accessed by the appropriate user. The password is a combination of the pan (in lower case) and the date of birth in the format dd mm yyyy. For example, 1) if the pan is AAAAA0000A and the date of birth is 10-Jan-2008, then the password will be aaaaa0000a10012008 Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat reader 8.0 or forward to open the password protected PDF file. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, please visit the following link to download it: www.adobe.com/products/ acrobat/readstep2.html In case you are unable to open the document, please contact Efiling Income Tax Administrator at ask@incometaxindia.gov.in providing the document along with pan number and assessment year.

    Looks like Income tax dept does not have any QA persone. The PDF needs PAN number in small letters!! though it is mentioned in caps everywhere. I learned this after several hit and trials.

    Site is also horrible in terms of user experience.

  20. Yuva says:

    I have same query as already raised by Sumit Roy,
    I am unable to understand what I should fill in the blank space in the last line of the declaration: “I further declare that I am making this return in my capacity as…………………………and I am also competent to make this return and verify it”. Since my return is filed under Status: INDIVIDUAL and is a personal Income Tax return, should I just write INDIVIDUAL in the blank space?

  22. Raina says:

    While trying to complete ITR-1, I am repeatedly getting a message that I should check Form 16 or AS26. There is hardly any time left for me to first register for viewing these forms and then submitting the return.

    Is this message coming because the server, which matches actual TDS with the figures mentioned in ITR-1, is overloaded?

  23. Sai says:

    Thanks. The information was very helpful

  34. SUMIT ROY says:

    I have submitted my IT Return for AY 2012-13 using e-filing procedure and have also received the ITR-V acknowledgement file via e-mail. Since no digital signature was used, I now have to send a signed copy of ITR-V to Income Tax Department, CPC, Bengaluru.
    I am unable to understand what I should fill in the blank space in the last line of the declaration: “I further declare that I am making this return in my capacity as…………………………and I am also competent to make this return and verify it”. Since my return is filed under Status: INDIVIDUAL and is a personal Income Tax return, should I just write INDIVIDUAL in the blank space?

    your pan number + your date of birth.

    For instance if your pan number is: AACCB2952P
    and you Date of Birth is : 20 Dec 1984

    then your password will be aaccb2952p20121984
