E-Filing of ITR - password in acknowledgement

7:46 PM
By now, many of you would have filed several tax returns of your clients or
your own companies or even your own returns. It has been brought to our
notice that this year, whenever an ITR form is filed electronically without
the digital signature, the system shows that the ITR-V has been e-mailed to
the e-mail ID registered with the Income-tax Department’s web site.
Thereafter, when the ITR-V is tried to be opened, the system asks for a
password. This was creating problems as the password that is generally used
by the tax payer to log onto the e-filing site does not work while opening
the ITR-V.

Recently, the Income-tax Department has put up the following clarification
on its website. This would help all of you in opening the ITR-V in case of
returns filed electronically.

*Information on how to open your ITRV/ITR ACK*

*Dear TaxPayer,*

Please note that you will receive your ITRV/ITR ACK PDF file in a zip
format, the ITRV/ITR ACK PDF document is password protected
to ensure it is accessed by the appropriate user. The password is a
combination of the
***pan **(in lower case)** **and the date of birth in the
format ddmmyyyy.*

For example, 1) if the pan is AAAAA0000A and the date of
birth is 10-Jan-2008,
then the password will be aaaaa0000a10012008

Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat reader 8.0 or forward to open the
password protected PDF file. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, please
visit the following link to download it:

In case you are unable to open
the document,

please contact Efiling Income Tax Administrator providing the document along with pan number and assessment year.
