Can't Access Income Tax India - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

For viewing 26 AS, NRIs are directed to a website through a link, but it is INVARIABLY broken. It always says, Not working. How then can NRIs access 26 AS, calculate taxes and file tax returns? Paper returns route is not open beyond an income limit. Complaints have drawn blank and I am frustrated beyond limit.

since 3 days the incometax efiling site is not responding. plz. get the report to higher authorities at Delhi to extend the efilling date as it is extended for Uttaralhand ITR's.

its very much painfull to try every now & then for return uploading as the efiling site is not responding.

Dinesh Sood · 31 July 2013 - 00:23

I.Tax limit for compulsory e filing reduced from 10 lacs to 5 lacs so number of assesses trying to upload returns must have increased substantially. It seems the server of the department is unable to cope with the traffic so last dates for filing ITR's need to be extended

Chetan B Kadam · 30 July 2013 - 10:25

keep trying every 5 minutes, you surely will get a chance to upload the Return data.

firstly the site does not work properly. secondly the form is useless and made by persons who do not know how to make form which can be filled in quickly, the references to sections are time consuming, instructions are no helpful. there is a difference in normal form and e filing form. I wasted 6 hours today to do this form 3 times. I give up. might as well fill it in hand and submit it in the office. do something about it.
