My client (salaried person) himself filed ITR 1 for ay 16-17 for which he received notice u/s 139(9) for showing as tax payable for Rs.780.  He did not pay it.  He failed to give response following which return invalidated.  Do I have to filed a fresh belated return as if nothing happened?   will the department accept it?  please advise as the time is running out.
