ITR Refund 2022: Income Tax Refund Not Received Yet? Know here how to check status

After filing income tax return, the wait is for refund. The deadline for filing income tax returns for the financial year 2021-22 and assessment year 2022-23 was July 31, 2022. The IT department has sent refunds to many taxpayers, but there are many such taxpayers who are still awaiting refund. If you are one of the taxpayers waiting for the refund, then it is very important for you to know that the tax department will issue the refund only when your income tax return is processed. This information is sent to you through email and SMS about the processing of tax return under U/S 143(1). 

State Bank of India (SBI) processes ITR refund. The refund is credited directly to the taxpayer’s account or a check or demand draft is sent to his address. In such a situation, you can find out the status of refund by visiting the e-filing website of the Income Tax Department. There are two ways to track this. First, TIN can be found by visiting the Income Tax e-filing website and second by visiting the NSDL website.
