Income Tax India e-Filing API - Comments

The service provides for accounting services and other third parties to file income tax returns online to the Indian government in fulfillment of clients' tax payment requirements. It provides bulk access for data submission rather than filing returns one at a time via the Department of Income Tax portal. API methods support upload of a properly formatted XML document that passes data for a single tax return to the government's compliance monitoring system. Multiple documents can be uploaded in succession, as well, to expedite bulk filing. Methods also allow retrieval of a token string upon completed submission which allows later checks on the status of filed returns.
