The taxpayer must file their Income Tax Return during the assessment year on or before the due date. 

The following statuses are assigned to an ITR on Quicko

  1. Not Started: Taxpayer account is set up but they haven't started preparing the ITR
  2. In Progress: Taxpayer has started preparing the ITR but hasn't e-filed the return
  3. E-filed: Taxpayer has e-filed the ITR and has received an acknowledgment number
  4. E-verified: Taxpayer has successfully e-verified the ITR with the Income Tax Department

In case the ITR is e-filed and the taxpayer amended the same & didn't e-file again, the status might be 'In progress'.
