Income Tax Department proposes to introduce an electronic signature for efiling of Income Tax Returns in addition to existing Digital Signature Certificate / ITR V. The e-signature shall be based on the validation of the taxpayer on the basis of the data available with the Income Tax department. Data such as bank A/c number, CPC intimation number, valid TAN and the personal details of the taxpayer. This e-signature proposed to be given to the existing e-filers (will not be available to first time e-filers) in select categories of such as ITR 1, ITR 2 and ITR 4S. Your response/suggestion/comment on introduction of e-signature is sought in the email of  efiling_schema_utility@incometaxindia.gov.in.

    THOSE WHO ARE FILING ITR-1 AND ITR-2, E-SIGNATURE IS USEFUL,PROVIDEDD THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY CHANGES FROM FORM-16, ISSUED BY THE EMPLOYER

    ITR-4S, ASSESSES SIGNATURE IN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT IN FORM V IS ABSOULUTELY NESSESSORY, BECAUSE SOMETIMES E RETURN INTERMEDIERIS ALSO CAN FILE WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDDGE OF THE ASSESSEE, WHICH WILL AFFECT THE ASSESSEE

    The practice of digital signature needs to be compulsorily optional. If at all it is made mandatory, the Department should provide it free to the Tax Payers (not just filers) who have e-filed for 3 or more years consecutively. Better still, it can make the signature downloadable/usable if returns are filed within the due date so as to provide an incentive to the timely filers…
