After you have filed your ITR (Income Tax Return) successfully and verified it, the IT (Income Tax) Department begins assessing the dispensation of your tax return. If any refunds are due, they are issued once the processing, evaluating is complete, and all the data is in place.

While processing, the Income Tax Department verifies discrepancies if any, and flaws in the income declared by you, the tax paid by you, and the collective data that is present with them.
Once the processing is complete, the Income Tax department will usually send a notice as per Section 143(1). This notice gives you clarity in terms of the returns filed by you stating if they have been approved or there are discrepancies. In case there are any discrepancies found after the department’s tax calculations, or there is a refund due, the same will be displayed in the email.

Once you have successfully filed your Income Tax Return, and you want to see the status, The Income Tax Department now provides an online service for knowing your Income Tax Refund’s status and steps to be taken thereafter.

Generally, post verification, either of these two messages will be shown to you under ‘status’ of your income tax return – “Successfully Verified” or “Successfully e-Verified.” On completion of processing your Income Tax Return, the status shown would be “ITR Processed.”

For information of Income Tax Refunds, individuals can now view the status of their refunds in ten days post Income Tax refund has been filed on the official e-filing website https://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/home.
