    Dear sir,
    I want to know, Whether it is possible to file income tax return (From: ITR4 and 4S) for assessment year 2014-15 (FY:2013-2014) as of now?
    If possible then how to file it online?I mean under which section?

  2. vswami says:

    “…even if total exceeds Rs. 5 Lakhs”- The point of concern really is with regard to a case in which per return the total income is less , but as recomputed later by taxpayer himself, or by the AO, that were to exceed the said limit.

  3. vswami says:

    “….or Their Returns do not Contain any Claim for Refund”. Does this mean- paper return filing is permissible even if total exceeds Rs. 5 Lakhs ; And what happens, even if per return no refund is claimed, but it so happens that for any reason, such as omission of a deduction due but not claimed, refund becomes due. In such an event, will not a revised return require to be only e’filed and processed by CPC ? Clarity is seen to be wanting .
