The issue arises when an assessee (Incometax Return Filer) should check status of his Incometax Refund. Latest ITRs have been and are being filed for Assessment Year 2015-16 and therefore, whether the refund status can be checked for A.Y. 2015-16 also ?
For checking and verifying the status of Incometax Refund, Assessment Year is irrelevant. Followings are the conditions is for claiming the incometax refund irrespective of Assessment Year :-
1. Assessee has filed his/her Income-tax Return in which assessee should have claimed the Refund.
2. In case of Incometax Return without DSC or Aadhaar verification, ITR-V should have been reached to CPC, Banglore of Incometax Department ?
3. At least or around 30 days have been passed from the date of completion of process of filing of Income Tax Return.
4. Neiher Incometax Refund nor the online information / SMS has not been received by the assessee.
