What is Income Tax Return / ITR Status?
ITR or Income Tax Return Status is the stage of your Income Tax Return with the Income Tax Department (ITD). The ITD processes your ITR only after it is successfully e-verified.

What are the different types of ITR status in India?
There are multiple types of ITR statuses in India, some of the most common ITR statuses are:
1. ITR-V Received
2. Return uploaded pending for ITR-V/ E-verification
3. Successfully e-verified
What does Return uploaded pending for ITR-V/ E-verification as ITR status mean?
The ITR status of Return uploaded ‘pending for ITR-V/ E-verification’ is shown when Income Tax Return is filed, but verification of return is not done. ITR can only be processed after e-verification is done successfully. Verification can be done online or by sending a signed copy of the acknowledgment to CPC Bangalore via post.
What does the ITR status of ITR-V Received mean?
If your ITR status is ‘ITR-V received’, it means a copy of ITR-V sent by you via post is received by the Income Tax Department. No further action is required from the taxpayer when ITR status is ITR-V Received. This status will change once ITR is processed by the department.
What does the ITR status of Successfully e-verified mean?
The ITR status of ‘Successfully e-verified’ means your Income Tax Return for a particular financial year is filed and e-verified. No further action is required from the taxpayer. Once your ITR will be processed by the income tax department this status will change to ITR Processed.
What does ITR status as Defective mean?
If your ITR status is ‘Defective’, it means there is some discrepancy in the Income Tax Return. In such a case, you will receive an email from the Income Tax Department (ITD) on your registered email id with the type of discrepancy found in your ITR. The next course of action is to file a Revise ITR with the correct and required details.
