If an individual missed the deadline of July 31, 2023 to file income tax return (ITR) for FY 2022-23 (AY 2023-24), income tax laws allow one to file a belated ITR. The last date to file belated ITR for FY 2022-23 (AY 2023-24) is December 31, 2023. However, do keep in mind that one needs to pay a penalty to file a belated ITR.

« Penal Late fee is levied under Section 234F of the Income Tax Act, 1961, if an individual assessee files a belated ITR. If an individual assessee’s total income is above Rs 5 lakh, then a penal late fee of Rs 5,000 will be applicable. If the total taxable income does not exceed Rs 5 lakh, then the penal late fee will be Rs 1,000, » says Chartered Accountant (CA) Aastha Gupta, Partner, SK Gulati & Associates, a Delhi based CA firm.

Step 11: The next step is to fill in the details related to gross taxable income. In the online method, most of the details are pre-filled. Hence, it is important to ensure that all the details of your income are pre-filled. If there is any income missing, then the individual will be required to enter such details.

After filing income details, the next step is to claim eligible deductions such as those under sections 80C, 80D, 80TTA etc. Such deductions can be claimed only if an individual opts for the old tax regime.

Based on total taxable income and deductions claimed, the portal will calculate the tax liability. The e-filing portal will take into account taxes that are already deposited.

The final calculation will show if there is any additional tax payable, or if there is a refund due, or tax payable matches with the tax deposited. If there is any additional tax payment, an individual can pay the taxes before making the final submission.

Do note that the tax liability section will impose a penalty of Rs 5,000 or Rs 1,000 as applicable because the individual is filing a belated ITR.

Step 12: Once the tax payment is done, an individual will be redirected to the ITR filing page. Click on the tax paid column and then click on ‘Advance and Self-Assessment’ tax payment column. Here enter the details from the tax challenge and click on confirm.

Once the tax challenge details are added, click on the proceed button.

Confirm all the information and click on ‘preview return’. After this, a new web page will open, and it will show that your validation is successful, and now you should verify the submitted belated ITR. Do note that the filed ITR must be verified within 30 days of filing it. There are six ways to verify income tax returns.
