FAQ

You get a defective return notice under section 139(9) of the Income Tax Act. Once received, you need to respond to it within 15 days from the date of receiving the notice. In a scenario like this, if you have incorrectly filed your ITR, you may need to file a revised ITR.

While processing your ITR, if the tax department assesses that more tax is due from you than paid and declared in your return, then you would normally get a demand notice. The intimation will be sent to you regarding the same via email and SMS under section 143(1).
