To begin, log in to your Income Tax portal using your user ID and password. If you have not yet registered with the Income Tax Department, you will need to do so in order to access your portal. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it by following the prompts on the login page.

Once you have successfully logged in, navigate to the ‘e-Proceedings’ tab on the dashboard. Here, you will find two sub-tabs: ‘For Your Action’ and ‘For Your Information’. The ‘For Your Action’ tab will contain any notices that require your response or submission. The ‘For Your Information’ tab will contain any intimations or updates on your tax processing.

It is important to regularly check the ‘For Your Action’ tab to ensure that you are aware of any notices that require your attention. You can also use the ‘Response to Outstanding Demand’ option to check for any outstanding demands. If you need to check for demands from a previous year, you can use the ‘Assessment Year’ filter to search for them.

In the event that you have received a demand on your email but cannot locate it on the portal, you can use the ‘Search By Demand Reference Number’ option to locate it. Simply input the demand reference number found in the PDF file attached to the email, and you will be able to locate the notice or demand.

We recommend that you check for notices and demands on your Income Tax portal at least once a quarter. This will ensure that you are aware of any outstanding demands or notices and can take appropriate action. If you do receive a notice or demand, do not take it lightly, as failing to respond can result in penalties and taxes being applied to your account.


In conclusion, staying on top of notices and demands from the Income Tax Department is crucial for any taxpayer. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily check for notices and demands on your Income Tax portal, and take appropriate action if necessary. Remember, prevention is better than cure, and regularly checking for notices and demands can save you from unnecessary penalties and taxes in the future.
