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

In such a situation, the taxpayer can File a Revised Return on Quicko and proceed to e-file the ITR.

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
    • Original Acknowledgment Number
    • The Original Date of Filing ITR
  • 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)
