Filing and maintaining the info relating to your Income tax returns was never so easy. But, thanks to the Income Tax Department, they have come up with a comprehensive and more user friendly website. No need of going to a professional for filing the ITR-1. Just login to incometax They have provided a prefill form in the efile tab after logging in. But if you want to file the other ITR's u should download the Excel utility.

Apart from this they have modified the website appearance. It is now easy for even a new user to handle it. There are some special features enabled which were not available erstwhile. I have listed a few useful features:
