Filling of Income Tax Return has started on the earnings of the year 2022-23. Till now more than 2 crore taxpayers have filed their returns and are now waiting for refund. After filling ITR, it is necessary to validate it, only then your refund money is processed. Taxpayers often ask the question that if the return is filed and verified, then in how many days will the money be returned.

When we asked tax expert Balwant Jain for the correct information about the number of days the refund comes after filing and verification, he said that usually it takes 20 to 25 days for this work. However, the chairman of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) claims that now the refund time has reduced considerably. We try to process the return within a few days of filing it. The intention of the government is to send the refund money within a day.

In how many days will the money be received this time –

CBDT Chairman Nitin Gupta says that with the use of technology, now the process of refund has become very simple. If we talk about the last financial year, the refunds of 80 percent taxpayers were issued within 30 days. Not only this, if we look at the average of ITR refund for 2022-23, it was 16 days.

That is, the refund was returned to every taxpayer within an average of 16 days. If you look at the figures, earlier in 2022-23, it used to take an average of 26 days for the refund to come back. The department had claimed to settle about 23 lakh returns in a single day on July 28, 2022. This year also the tax return money is expected to come back soon.

Sends the information in advance-

Income Tax Department gives all the information regarding the refund in advance. The department tells you in advance by sending a message or through email that how much is your tax liability or how much money you will get refund.
