Check Income Tax Refund Status With These Simple Steps

Waiting for your Income Tax Refund? Worry not, we will enlighten you with the easiest methods to check your refund status by sitting at home.

If a person has paid higher tax to the government in a fiscal year, then he or she has to file an ITR to claim the refund. The tax more than the liability is paid when the “advance tax paid by an individual, self-assessment and/or tax deducted at source (TDS)” exceeds the total tax liability during a financial year.

The Income Tax Department after analysing your ITR, if it finds that a refund is payable to you, then you will receive a notification via SMS or Email. Notification will carry the refundable amount along with the reference number of the refund sequence. Under section 143 (1) of the income tax Act, a notification is sent to the tax payee.
