A brief guide to ITR PDF password

In this post, we will discuss the ITR-V and password for the ITR-V PDF, as well as its other important aspects. Let’s look at each section in detail :

What is ITR-V ?

ITR-V stands for “Income Tax Return-Verification”. It’s a one-page form for confirming your tax return filing. 

On uploading the return, you are required to e-verify your ITR submission which can be done  electronically via five different options.  On successful verification, the ITRV is generated. It is a confidential document, which is encrypted and secured by a password provided by the Income Tax Department. This form proves that you have e-filed your IT return.   Individuals who file without a digital signature receive ITRV.

Steps to obtain ITR-V acknowledgement

The Income Tax Department sends an encrypted ITR-V PDF via email or it can be downloaded from the ITD Portal. 

Here is how to open the ITRV PDF using a password:

1: Visit the income tax e-filing website.


2: To see the e-filed tax return, click the ‘e-File

3: To download ITR V, select the ‘Download Form’ option for the appropriate assessment year.
