Identify the error:

The first step in the process of rectifying errors in your filed ITR is to identify the error. This can be done by reviewing the ITR form and checking for any discrepancies in the details submitted.

Submit rectification request:

Once you have identified the error, the next step is to submit a rectification request. The rectification request can be submitted online through the Income Tax e-filing portal. To submit the request, log in to the e-filing portal and click on the 'Rectification Request' option under the 'e-File' tab.

Select the type of error:

In the rectification request, you will be required to select the type of error you want to rectify. The options include: a) correction in tax computation, b) correction in personal details, c) addition of income, d) deletion of income, and e) change in status.

Provide necessary details:

Once you have selected the type of error, you will be required to provide the necessary details. This may include details such as PAN, assessment year, acknowledgement number, and details of the error.

Submit the request:

After providing the necessary details, you can submit the rectification request. The Income Tax Department will process the request and make the necessary changes. Once the changes are made, an intimation will be sent to the taxpayer.

It is important to note that the rectification request can only be submitted within a specified time period. The time period for submitting the request is generally within four years from the end of the assessment year. For instance, if you want to rectify an error in your ITR for the financial year 2020-21 (assessment year 2021-22), the request must be submitted before March 31, 2026.

In conclusion, rectifying errors in your filed ITR is a simple and straightforward process. It can be done online through the Income Tax e-filing portal. It is important to identify the error and submit the rectification request within the specified time period. If you are unsure about the process or require any assistance, it is advisable to consult a tax expert.
