The term ITR-V, which stands for 'Income Tax Return - Verification', is used to denote a document verifying the legitimacy of an electronically filed Income Tax Return, particularly when it is not supported by a digital signature, an Aadhaar OTP, or an EVC mode.
Once an income tax return has been filed, a one-page verification acknowledgment is generated. This document must be signed before being sent to the Income Tax Office located in Bengaluru. Alternatively, taxpayers have the option to use the electronic verification facility.
Upon successful submission, an acknowledgment email is sent to the address registered with the e-filing portal.
