The status of an income tax return, or ITR, can be checked once it has been filed and validated. Taxpayers should regularly check their ITR status to ensure that it has been accepted and processed. “If your return is correctly filed and processed by the department, the status reflected in your account will be ‘ITR processed.’”
The ITR status may be changed to defective or the matter may be forwarded to an evaluating officer if the Centralized Processing Center (CPC) in Bengaluru discovers some irregularities or recommends adjustments.
