Solution – Restricted use of email ID for 4 times only on IT E-filing Website
Legal Solution for restricted use of email ID for 4 times only on incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
Recently, on www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in, assessee is compulsorily required to get its email ID and password registered. Further, maximum permissible usage of each of them is 4 times only. We know that most of the assessees in India do not have email ID. So, nowadays consultants have started to create additional email IDs. This takes substantial time and in future we have to remember those IDs and their passwords.
But the solution is found out. For example, I can use my email ID email@example.com for 4096 (yes, Four thousand ninety six ) assessees! But this benefit is available to Gmail users and only those domain users whose domain admin ignore .(dot) in the email ID.
How to use email ID for more than 4 times
If my email ID is firstname.lastname@example.org, then gmail will consider email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com as the same ID only. But at the same time, www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in will consider all these IDs as different IDs, so you can use each of them 4 times.
To cross check, if your email ID is say firstname.lastname@example.org and it is already used for 4 times, then you may now write as email@example.com and check your account, you will get the email and now see the “To” address in that mail, it will be firstname.lastname@example.org

For your convenience to count the maximum possible number of such combinations, I have attached herewith the Excel Sheet, in which you may write your email ID and you will get the answer with explanation for your case.
