Rectification in your Tax Return for a notice under section 143(1)

 

Fixing an error in your tax return, does not always require submitting a revised return. If you have received an intimation under section 143(1) regarding an error in your tax return, you can file a rectification. A rectification request under section 154(1) is allowed by the Income Tax Department for correcting mistakes when there is an apparent mistake in your Income Tax Return.

What you must know about filing a rectification under section 154(1)

  • Errors that can be rectified under section 154(1) – An error of fact, an arithmetic mistake, or a small clerical error or error due to overlooking compulsory provisions of law. Some examples are – A mismatch in tax credit, Advance Tax mismatch, gender mentioned incorrectly, or additional details not submitted for capital gains at the time of filing return.
  • A rectification can be filed by a Tax Payer or an Income Tax Authority can on its own rectify a mistake which is apparent.
  • If upon rectifying a 'mistake' there is a change in Income – a rectification should not be filed. In this case one must file a Revised Income Tax Return. In the rectification request no new deductions or exemptions are allowed to be claimed.
  • A rectification request can be filed for Returns which are already processed in CPC, Bangalore.
  • When the Income Tax Return was filed online, only online rectification is allowed.
