You may wonder if you can change or update your details after the filing of the income tax return (ITR). You may want to change or update your contact details or bank details. Here is how you can place a request for the changes.

The income tax department has clarified that a taxpayer can update their details after the filing of the income tax return. Taxpayers can make changes to their bank account, address, mobile number and e-mail ID using the feature ‘Change ITR Form Particulars’ under the e-filing portal. Taxpayers can request by following the steps mentioned below:

    1. Log in to the ‘e-filing’ portal http://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in.
    2. Go to the tab ‘My Account’ located on the top left-hand side of the page.
    3. Under the ‘My Account’ tab, choose ‘Service Request’.  Under ‘Service Request’, choose ‘Request Type’ as ‘New Request’. Next, under ‘Request Category’, choose ‘Change ITR Form Particulars’. Then click ‘Submit’.
    4. A new screen displays ‘Change ITR Form Particulars’. The taxpayer’s PAN would be displayed. The taxpayer is required to enter ‘Acknowledgement Number’ of the ITR here.
    5. In the next screen, a taxpayer has options for ‘Changing Bank Account Details’, ‘Change Address Details’ and ‘Change E-Mail ID/Mobile Number Details’. Here, the taxpayer has to choose the necessary option, provide the necessary information and submit the request.
    6. Once your request for ‘Change in ITR Form particulars’ is submitted, a success message would display on the screen with a transaction ID.
