Income tax (I-T) returns for 2021-22 cannot be filed through any software or directly by uploading JASON file because its functionality has not been enabled at the Income Tax Department portal.

“Returns for 2021-22, which are uploaded through utility available at the e-filing site, are not e-verified by Aadhaar number or any other OTP. The department has still not issued Schema (Electronic forms) of the I-T return, including ITR-2, ITR-3, ITR-5, ITR-6 ITR-7, even after the beginning of new financial year,” they added.

Due to this I-T refunds are pending with the department even after six months of filing returns. So, assesses are facing liquidity issues,” said I-T professional.
