HI, ​The Income Tax Department has provided Java and Excel utilities to prepare and e-File your Income Tax Return. ​Your applicable ITR utility can be downloaded from the incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. You need to have java runtime environment installed on your system to use the Java utility. Once you have downloaded the utility, you need to extract the files from a zip folder. Windows users can run .jar or .bat file to open the utility whereas Linux/Mac OS users will have to run only .jar file to open the utility. Following are features available in Java utility: New - On click of this button, a new copy of the ITR form will be available. If you have already opened the ITR form, you will be prompted to save the earlier copy. Open - This option is for importing the XML (successfully generated earlier) of a particular Assessment Year. Select the path and import the XML. You should check/validate the contents before finalizing upload/submission. Save - You can save your completed XML in the desired path/location of your desktop. Save Draft - This option is very helpful wish to save your progress and work on it later. Please note you cannot upload an XML which was saved using the ‘Save draft’ option. Only a complete XML generated using the ‘Save’ option can be uploaded successfully. Prefill - This option can be used to auto-fill your Personal, Address and Tax details. You will be prompted to provide your User ID, Password and DOB/DOI to fetch the data. You can either choose to fetch the information from your PAN details or from your previously filed ITRs. It is advisable to complete this activity before you start entering other data. Please check/validate the contents. Make sure you're connected to the internet to avail this feature. Re-Calculate - On clicking this button, the data in the utility will be re-calculated. This is to provide with the utility based calculation/validation. If there are any errors, they will be shown on the right hand side of the screen under 'Validation'. Make sure to correct all of them before you submit. Submit - Click this button to upload the XML in e-Filing portal. You'll be prompted to provide your e-Filing credentials, User ID, Password and DOB/DOI. Post submission, the success message and the acknowledgment number will be displayed. You will be able to download ITR-V. Please make sure you're connected to the internet to avail this feature. You can also choose to digitally sign your return by using a valid USB token. Help - This option will let you know the short keys, instructions, settings and how to use this ITR form. Previous/Next - These will help you to navigate to the various tabs of the Income Tax Return form. In case of Excel utility: There is no prefill option so you will have to enter all the information manually. However you can import your personal and tax details from previous ITR’s .xml file. Once you have filled in all the information, click on validate. If there are any errors, it will be shown in a pop up window. Make sure there are no errors before you generate an .xml file. Unlike Java utility, there is no submit option in excel utility. You will have to click on Generate XML and save the .xml file on your system. Once you have saved the .xml file, login to your e-Filing account on incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in, go to e-File tab and select the first option Upload Return. Select the ITR Form Name and Assessment Year from the dropdown list. Click on choose file and select the .xml file from the location where you have saved it.
