How to find your Income Tax Refund Status Online

by Manish Chauhan · 284 comments

Do you know how to find your income tax refund status online? Yes, there is a simple way of finding out the status of your income tax return online. A lot of people are clueless about the refund status! Now, one can just enter their PAN number and the Assessment year for which the refund status is to be known and get the status update on a click of a button.

How to check Income tax refund Status Online

All you need to do is go to this website and enter your PAN number and choose the Assessment year and click on submit. This will give you the current status of your income tax refund. You can also track the status of the income tax refund by contacting the help desk of SBI’s at toll free number: 18004259760 or email them at itro@sbi.co.inor refunds@incometaxindia.gov.in

Note that the income tax refund is valid only if you file your income tax return on time. If you delay the income tax return filing, in that case you will lose the interest on your refund money.  I hope you know that filing your  tax return online helps one to get tax refund faster than offline return filing.

What can be different types of Income tax refund Status ?

1. Change in address

A lot of income tax refunds get dispatched at right time, but they go back because of the change in address. A lot of people keep moving from one place to another and because of this the income tax refund status shows “Refund Cheque returned because of change in address” reason in the status. Look that the snapshot below

2. Cheque Encashed Status

Incase one has already en-cashed the cheque which has come for income tax refund, and then he will see the following message in the status box. If you see this and haven’t already got the cheque – you are in problem!

There can  be other status also depending on the situation . the above two status’s were just for demo purpose .

Some Important Points about Income Tax Refund

  • The State Bank of India (SBI) is the refund banker to the Income Tax Department (ITD). So State bank of India sends the income tax refunds
  • Refunds are generated in two modes i.e., ECS and paper. If the taxpayer has selected mode of refund as ECS (direct credit in the bank account of the taxpayer) at the time of submission of income return the taxpayer’s bank A/c (at least 10 digits ) and MICR code of bank branch and communication address are mandatory . For taxpayers who have not opted for ECS refund will be disbursed by cheque or demand draft. For generation of refund through paper cheque bank account no, correct address is mandatory.
  • The status of the refund would be available for tax payers, only 10 days after the refund has been sent by the Assessing Officer to the refund banker.
  • Refund status can be viewed only if you have received an acknowledgement from the IT department of having received the ITR form.

Did you check your Income tax refund status ? If No , then check it soon and let us know what is the status ?

Dear Manish,
What need to be done if the cheque is returned due to change in address
what need to be done to update the address for communication.

Well what i realized is even if you correct your address while filing your returns they will still consider the address you mentioned while applying for your PAN card. So in my case i had to update my PAN Card by changing the address, then there is form which needs to be sent to IT dept, CPC B’lore in my case and there you need to mention your old address and your new address and also if you want the money to be credited online, you can request the same in that form by providing the bank details and a cancelled cheque.

Just want to put one more information… that we can even call on Toll Free Number of Central Processing Centre (CPC) – Bengaluru :- 18004252229 to check the status of Returns.

But the information present here about SBI was new to me. I guess, its CPC who process the returns and disburse through SBI. Plz correct me if I am wrong.

In the blog post, its mentioned that the income tax refund will not be received, if the return of income is filed late. However, this is an incorrect opinion and I would like to bring to your kind attention that, even if a taxpayer files a delayed return of income, he will still be eligible to get a refund if its due to him.

Hi Manish & fellow JIans,
I am getting these messages for all the assessment years since 2007. I started working from Sep’2006 onwards.

a. Your assessing officer has not sent
this refund to Refund Banker.

b. If this refund has been sent by
your Assessing Officer within the
last week, you may wait for a week
and again check status.

Reply

16 Jayaprakash Kanreddy January 20, 2012 at 11:17 am

This is because your IT returns are not processed by your assessing officer. If you have a copy of IT returns submitted then go to the ward office mentioned on that and give an application for processing them. This happens because of several reasons, so we cant for what reason it was stopped.

This is applicable only for manual IT Returns submission not for online returns filing.

Reply

17 Saurav Sinha January 21, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Thanks Mr Kanreddy… fortuantely I have all the return copies which I submitted maually till 2011… so I should go to the IT office in Jamnagar (I work here), meet the Ward Officer to sort out this issue …

Thanks Manish for guiding me. As far as returns are concerned, I think whatever is deducted from my salary in a year comes back (all or a portion of it) if I submit proofs of tax-saving investments I guess.

I filed my IT return manually on June’ 2013. The Assessing Officer sent my refund from ITD on 30th September to the refund banker/cpc (whatsoever it is) for payment (Assessment year- 2013-2014), but there is not refund status showing in the TIN site. What could be the reason for this delay?

Dear Manish

Please note that there is no rule in IT Act, if you delay the income tax return filing, in that case you will lose the refund money. I filed always return after due date and got refund in the next AY. Currently I filed the return on 25 Aug’2011 and got refund in Dec’11. Last date of filing return does not mean you lose refund money, if you delay the IT return and attract any penalty, if you file the same till in the next AY. Subsqueant, AO may impose Rs 5000 as penalty for non filing of return, if your tax liability arises and not deposited on time. Hence, last date of filing of return means, if you have any outstanding tax liability, you do deopsit the same before or on last date of filing of return, otherwsie, you would have to deposit
with interest @ 1.5% p.m. and there is no other issue.

Happy tax filing return

Manish,

“you acutally loose the interest part on refund amount incase you file return late” even this statement is also wrong. Even I was in the same impression till sometime back. I’ve got interest for the refund amount even after I filed my returns after sept. Even in the rule book and from some CA’s I got this info that you will lose interest but IT dept is still paying interest for that.

Hi Manish,

Nice article. I have a query regarding income tax refund claim. I have only salary+interest income, which means i can use Sahaj (ITR-1) form for return filing. In case i was unable to provide rent details to my employer, how do i claim a refund while filing return using ITR-1 ? ITR-1 has only fields for writing 80* deductions, and nothing for HRA claim !

Secondly, what should i fill in Circle/Ward field ? Is it mandatory to fill the same as last year (or whatever it shows on IT website under jurisdiction section) ? Is it possible that last year i filed the return under CPC bangalore ward, and this time i file from another ward say in Noida ?

Thanks in advance !

32 Manish Chauhan January 20, 2012 at 10:41 am

In that case you dont need ITR 1 , choose a form which also has place to mention refund

Manish

33 Ritesh January 20, 2012 at 11:34 am

Hi Manish,

I checked all the forms, none of them have Section 10 (13A) for HRA provision. I think ITR-1 should suffice, and we may have to deduct calculated HRA exemption from total income!

Any clue on the ward/circle query ?

Thanks.

Applied for CIBIL TransUnion Score (Including CIR) today. Payment done using credit card- No Issues faced. But there was nowhere to upload the ID and Address proofs requested, so wondering what to do about it??

Also, though I have held/hold many credit cards but I entered information only about 2 under the assumption that they need it for PAN and other accounts correlation/verification purpose and once verified they’ll be able to fetch my other accounts details too. Hope that is okay!!

Now just waiting to get my credit score with fingers crossed. :)
Manish- I am planning for a home loan in near future, can I leverage this CIBIL report (hoping it comes out good) for negotiating on interest rates or anything? I mean in India, do the banks (nationalised or private) really give enough weightage to this report?

Reply

35 Manish Chauhan January 24, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Umang

When you apply for your CIBIL score online, you dont need to upload those documents ,you mention those documents so that incase of failure in payment, you can send the same documents via post to them to get your score .

Now, if you have a good score ,you can really negotiate your interest rate or atleast ask them to waive off processing charges and ask them for faster disbursement of your loan , You can also tell them that you have some relative at Some XYZ bank and he was saying that you can get better interest rates at their banks.

Hi Manish,

Thanks for your response.

I have got my Credit Score- 795/900. How do you think is it? Can I really use this score for negotiations anywhere?

Also, to be frank I was expecting a real good score since I have never defaulted my credit card payments and have taken no loan in the past. Thus, I am really wondering why my score has come low as 795!!

The report is so huge, I am hardly able to make out anything from it other than my score. There are not even any reasons stated on the report describing why this score!! How am I supposed to improve this score unless I know where it went wrong?

Regards,
Umang

37 Manish Chauhan February 21, 2012 at 9:19 am

Umang

795 is a good score . Dont worry too much , but definately a much higher score is better . How old is your credit history ? Because a good score comes when there is good history , if it has been just 1-2 yrs , then your score might be less because of that . Keep paying your dues on time and make sure you utilise your credit behaviour too . It will improve over time . Also find out more on how to read the CIBIL score, its there on net

38 Umang February 29, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Manish I have been holding and using credit cards for almost 5 years now, so not really sure why the credit score is low though I never defaulted!!

BTW what is the best score anyone can get that you might be aware of?

and What do you mean by utilizing credit behaviour?

Reply

39 Manish Chauhan March 1, 2012 at 11:42 am

Umang

750+ is a good score . Credit behaviour means how you are using your credit compared to what you are given . If you have 5 credit cards, thats a problem , what does that show ? It shows that you are credit hungry (it might not be true, but thats how its looked at)

hi manish,
i m a regular reader of ur articles.
as return filing time is up ahead , hats off to you for yet another nice article at the right time.
well i have sm queries.

1. i hv bought a house for 35 lacs, for which i took 26 lacs of loan frm HDFC, can i get exemption of 1 lac capital and 1.5 lac interest paid that means a total of 2.5 lacs.
2. if suppose i buy a second house can i realy get full interest exemption .
3 if my wife and i become the co-owner of the house can v both get exemption of unlimited interest seperately.
4. if my wife was a co-owner of my first house (which is not the case as i m the only owner of my first house) cud v hv both enjoyed the exemption of 1 lac for capital and 1.5 lac interest paid separately.
5. one more thing about filing of return: as per now i m filing a return thru a CA who is taking 12 %of refund money as he brings the cheque. one benefit of this thing that he surely brings the chaeque in abut 5-6 months, can it be safe to go for ECS option for refund. what if the money is not refunded or delayed because i can run to get money back as i remain very busy.

I’ve been e-filing for the last 4 years. For 3 of these years, there has been a refund due.
When I check at CPC, it says the case has been transferred to the jurisdiction office. They are unable to tell me why. The jurisdiction office, for some reason, has not changed, even though the last time I filed a return with that address was 3-4 years back.

My attempts to take this further are now stuck, because I don’t know anyone in that city to follow up in that local office.

For financial year 2009-10, finally, there is an update as on Jan 25th, 2012 – “Adjusted against outstanding demand. (CIN-BSR code 0004329 Challan deposit date – 24012012 Challan Sequence no – xxxxx)”

Anyone has any clue what this is? I have not received any communication from the deptt. about any demand. (at least on my email address – anything sent to a previous physical address- who knows!)

For other years, it keeps saying that refund banker has not received refund order.

People keep receiving refunds within 2-3 months of filing. I’ve yet to see a refund in 4 years :-(

That is correct. All the money for the investments was from her PF. I have another question. Is short term capital gain tax 15% irrespective of whether the person has any other income or not? If you take my wife’s case, she has no income now. So for short term capital gains that she makes from her investments, does she have to file returns?

55 Manish Chauhan February 29, 2012 at 1:59 pm

When to make a switch in ULIP’s is same as “Finding out, when markets are low and whne they are high” . That itself is the whole field and I dont think there can be just a small tutorial for that. You need to be a market expert in that .

Hi Manish,

Thank you for hosting such an informative site. Good job!

I am in an odd situation. I am working in a prvt. company. Due to some family emergency I missed the IT proof submission deadline. Now the company is not taking my Investment proofs and deducting the Tax on the basis of the fact that I could not submit any proof. Hence, I did not get even HRA benefits, leave aside investments!
My question is that will I get the refund after filing income tax return? And do I need to submit the proofs? And how do I furnish the investment proofs at the time of filing IT return?

The instrument returned undelivered by the speed post as the address provided by the assessee is not complete/ non existent.” Please tell me how can I get the refund. I filed the return at that time in Gurgaon. My address in PAN card is my permanent address which is currently valid but while filing return it was Gurgaon’s address which is no longer valid now.

Some time back I called income tax helpline also, they said I need to send application to your zonal ITO, requesting them to send the cheque at address mentioned in PAN card. I submitted the application but no response till now. Its been 6 months. Neither I received any cheque on my permanent address which is registered with PAN.

Hello Manish,

Thank you for the helpful post!

I received an email from intimations@cpc.gov.in regarding refund non issuance due to wrong postal address.

It is mentioned as below:
“In case you are making an online request for refund re-issue by cheque, the below information is required to
avail the service at the e-filing website:
i. CPC Reference No. – This is the Communication Reference No. available on the first page of Intimation u/s
143(1) / Rectification Order u/s 154.
ii. Refund Sequence No. – This number is available in the first page or in the table Refund Particulars above
the Notes, in the above mentioned orders.”

Please clarify where to find the Refund Sequence number. I could not find it at all. I sent a mail to ask@incometaxindia.gov.in but no reply. I tried calling the Bangalore office (o80 number) and toll free number (1800). Both did not get connected.

I am stuck because of not being able to find a damn refund sequence number :D

Hi Manish
I work as a consultant for a government department in Hyderabad. After a long struggle and wait for over 3 years, I received my cheque for the refund of tax paid for AY 2010-11, yesterday. However, those “smart” fellows have not rightly indicated my bank account no. and when I asked branch they are not accepting the cheque and SBI IT call centre guy is saying that the issue is not because of the fault from the bank but of ITO. I’m literally tired on how to get my refund in reality. Can u advice me in this regard?

Frankly, there is no easy route , you need to either get it done again , use RTI if required, or file a consumer court case . As a citizen you have a right to get your money on time , and it was IT department fault , so they should compensate you .

If your problem has not been solved –

1. You would have received a Form 16 for the tax deducted that includes tax deducted on the VRS amount.
2. Enclose a copy of the above form 16 with an application to your AO for “Inclusion of TDS amount for AY xxx”.
3. Meet your AO concerned, explain the situation to him and ensure that he updates the data properly on the system. May require more than 1 visit and will require lots of waiting (patience)..

All the best!!

Status in online is showing as – “Expired Cheque – Refund voucher cancelled. The refund voucher was not deposited for encashment within 90 days from the date of issue. Contact your assessing officer for fresh release of refund”.

when I submitted IT returns, I opted “Credit to Bank Account “option. I was wondering why did they send cheque.

I found an email-id(refunds@incometaxindia.gov.in) in their website and when I sent an email to this email-id, it was bounced back.

Could you please me the next steps in this matter?

I have been selecting ECS refunds in all my returns of the past 6 years. but all refunds have been made by paper cheque. The only use for account number entered in the ITR is that the same is printed on the refund cheque so I am forced to deposit in the same bank account.

If you have received an expired cheque, you will need to apply to IT deptt and request for a fresh cheque to be issued. This is not possible to be done through email.

If you have not received the cheque but the status shows expired cheque, you can also write to the local IT Ombudsman for redressal..

Hi Manish

In my experience, I have not used RTI but still have got some hard nuts to crack.

1. USe pgportal.gov.in .. This is the Indian govt portal that routes all grievances to respective departments.. The IT department has 2 month timeframe to respond to your grievance.

2. Simultaneoulsy, involve the IT Ombudsman either through written letters or email.. Do keep following up on email / phone.

3. Keep pestering your AO for a response. IF physical visits are not possible, try and get the landline number of the ITO and the commissioner and keep following up.
If its CPC, do not use the helpline but call up 080-25186901 and keep faxing ITO HQ on 080-25186919 once every week for a response.

Do note that the department responses can be exteremely vague (“in process of being informed” does not give a time-frame) so you need to keep pushing (pestering/ “following up”).

No I don’t have acknowledgement only for that year with me. That’s why I am confused.

Twice I applied for the refund reissue request. Both time it was rejected without any reason. What should I do now?
