JSON is a file format. 

Starting AY 2021-22, taxpayers must furnish their ITR in JSON format & upload the same on Income Tax Portal. 


Quicko is a registered ERI with Income Tax Department & can help you E-File your ITR. This means you do not have to download ITR JSON & upload the same on the income Tax portal, Quicko does this automatically for you. 


In case you need a JSON file, you can download the JSON file from Quicko and move forward with your return.
