A taxpayer gets the above error when the original ITR has been filed within the due date of filing the return of the particular assessment year, and the taxpayer is filing ITR for the second time.



To resolve such an error on Quicko: 


  • Login to Quicko 
  • In the Filing tab, navigate to ADDITIONAL DETAILS from the side nav
  • Click on Revise Return > Revising on your own 
  • Enter the required details
  • Click on Save 
  • Navigate to E-File from the side nav and file ITR again


Note: A taxpayer can file only one ITR u/s 139(1), after that if the taxpayer wants to file an ITR again, he needs to file a revised return u/s 139(5)
