How to select the sites?

Income Tax Department has cautioned against the private portals, without naming them, stating that the income taxpayer should use it at their own peril. So, before filing the return with any of the portal, make sure that you are using the legitimate portal or an application. Also, have a look at their privacy policy before going ahead with the process to ascertain how the sensitive information will be taken care of. Check about the firm's policy that states whether your data will not be shared with the third party. Also, do have a look at the background of the company to ascertain whether the firm is credible or not. Switch to the private sites only if you find filing return through the department website difficult.
