If you have forgotten your password for the Login ID that you had created for e-filing of Income tax return and to view TDS Credited ( 26AS) in your account. There is a control that you can create only single account with one PAN No. So if you want to activate your account, the only option is to reset the password.

First of all if you remember the answer of security question that you had provided during the registration, then you can easily reset password by just clicking the link Forgot password, answering the security question along with the new password that you want to create and your password will be reseted within 24 hours.

The real problem arises when you don’t even remember the answer of the security question that you had given during registration of your account. So in such cases now there are 3 options which are introduced by the Income Tax department, which are as under:

1. Upload DSC

2. Using OTP(PIN)

3. Using Aadhaar OTP

Reset Password

The brief description of these options is as under:

1. Upload DSC:

This option can be opt by only those users who have their DSC registered at Income Tax online portal. If DSC is already registered, then in case of forget password, you just need to attached your DSC certificate in the given place and then you can reset your password which can be activated in 24 hours.

2. Using OTP(PIN)

This option is used by those who have their registered E-mail ID and Mobile number both in active form. Because in this option 2 OTPs will be send by the department one will be on E-mail and another one will be on mobile number. After putting both right OTPs you can reset the password which will be activated after 24 hours.

3. Using Aadhaar OTP

This is the last way for forget password. In this option the OTP will be send on the mobile number which is registered or can say linked with Aadhaar. Once you put correct OTP you can reset the password which will be activated after 24 hours.

  1. Defragment your harddrive – As a PC user, you have to know the defragmentation. There
    is no need of bringing in an expert to help increase computer performance as it can be done easily by any
    individual. Today’s computer scanners have benefited a great deal of households – from parents who want
    to keep hard and soft copies of a few of their important documents to students who discover their whereabouts useful enough because of their school and research needs.

    I helped a friend by writing to validate@incometaxindia.gov.in. By resetting the password, I was able to help him file his ITR. However, the unscrupulous so called Tax consultant who put my friend in trouble by not giving the password, keeps changing the password again & again. I am at a loss to stop him. When I approached the help line 1800 4250 0025, their only answer is that I get a Digital Certificate. Can any one guide me by writing to me at my email gmbharathi@hotmail.com?
    Incidentally, my friend is a soldier friend is a serving soldiers pitted against terrorists in J & K.

  12. Arjun says:

    I had filed Income Tax Return last year from a Tax Consultant.
    But he didn’t give me proper service nor did I receive my refund.
    At the time of registration the Tax Consultant had set the Password, he had also given his email ID in the Profile Section.
    Now he is not giving me my password or security question answer.
    Now how should I reset my password? I am totally confused.
    I tried to reset the password by using E acknowledgement & bank account number, but the new password goes to his email ID & he is adamant that he will not give me the password.
    What should I do?

  20. Santhosh says:

    Can I delete my e-filing account? I was looking at all the menu items in “My Account” and there seems no way of deleting one’s account there… Is there a workaround ?

    Thanks – Santhosh.

  21. RAKESH KUMAR JAIN says:

    While filing ITR-2, address & E-mail address is filled. Also, in My Account available after logging into Income Tax website, address & E-mail is available (under Chane Phone/Address). I have observed that IT Department sends all communications to E-mail address filled in ITR form.
    Kindly suggest, when is the address & E-mail available in My Account used? Also, how can the address available in My Account be changed?
