Digital Signature to E-File Income Tax Return

As per the expansion of technology, it is noticed everywhere, starting from e-ticking to e-filing the tax return for a particular financial year where every step can be performed as per your availability by sitting anywhere.

However, while filing an IT Return online the concerned person must complete the procedure with a digital signature to validate the authenticity of the documents.

As per the IT Act, 2000, digital signature came into the picture just to make the process of signing docs easier with just one small electronic token, known as Digital Signature Certificate or DSC.

The Requirement of Digital Signature in ITR e-filing

As per the section 44AB of the Income Tax Act, any individual or a company professional having an annual income of Rs 25 lakhs or more has to file for Income Tax & regarding any business if the yearly turnover is Rs 1 crore or more then he or she has to file for ITR online.

Following the Govt. guidelines, a Private Limited (Pvt. Ltd.) Company and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is mandated to use a DSC while filing the Income Tax Return. The individuals are not legally required to use a DSC in such matters, but it is recommended to use the Digital Signature to omit the hassle.

Advantages of having Digital Signature at the time of e-filing:

  • Cannot be copied or tempered
  • Environment friendly
  • Any documents that are digitally signed can be tracked easily.
  • The most important & interesting advantage is the transactions are maintained with privacy that is online
