What to do if the TDS credit is not reflected in Form 26AS?

In such situations where the TDS credit is not reflected in Form 26AS, it is advisable to reach out to the payer to determine the exact reasons behind the non-reflection. By contacting the payer, you can clarify the situation and gather information on any potential errors or omissions made in the TDS statement. They would be able to provide insights into why the TDS credit is not appearing in Form 26AS and assist you in resolving the issue.

Can I claim TDS in my return without Form 16?

Yes, you can claim TDS in your return without Form 16. The TDS credit will be reflected in your Form 26AS, which is a statement showing the details of TDS deducted on your behalf by various deductors. You can access your Form 26AS through the income tax department’s website. Once you have the TDS credit details from your Form 26AS, you can include that information while filing your Income Tax Return (ITR). It is important to ensure that your claim of TDS in your return of income matches the TDS credit being reflected in your Form 26AS. This ensures accurate reporting and helps prevent any discrepancies in your tax filings.

How can one resolve the issue of actual TDS and TDS credit in Form 26AS not matching?

If you find that the TDS credit in your Form 26AS does not match the actual TDS deducted, there are steps you can take to resolve this issue. The Income Tax Department updates the TDS details in Form 26AS based on the information provided by the deductor, who is responsible for deducting the tax. However, there may be cases where the deductor fails to furnish TDS details (i.e., TDS return) to the ITD or deducts the tax using an incorrect PAN.

To address this discrepancy, it is advisable to confirm the tax credit appearing in your Form 26AS and compare it with your actual TDS deductions. If you notice any differences, it is important to reconcile these discrepancies. Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Double-check your TDS certificates: Ensure that you have received TDS certificates for all the deductions made. These certificates should contain accurate details such as the deductor’s name, TAN (Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number) and the amount of TDS deducted.

2. Communicate with the deductor: Reach out to the deductor, which could be your employer, bank, or any other entity responsible for deducting TDS. Share your concerns regarding the mismatch between the actual TDS deducted and the TDS credit reflected in Form 26AS. Request them to rectify this by providing the correct TDS details to the ITD.

3. File a complaint with the ITD: If the deductor does not respond or rectify the issue, you can file a complaint with the Income Tax Department (ITD). Contact the relevant ITD authorities and provide them with the necessary information, including details of the deductor, TDS certificates and evidence of the mismatch.

4. Use the TRACES portal: The TRACES (TDS Reconciliation Analysis and Correction Enabling System) portal is an online platform provided by the ITD to facilitate the reconciliation of TDS deductions. You can register on the portal and access various functionalities to view and verify TDS details. If there are any discrepancies, you can raise a grievance through the portal and track its resolution.

5. File an Income Tax Return: Ensure that you report the actual TDS deductions correctly when filing your income tax return. Include all the necessary details of TDS certificates and the accurate amount of TDS deducted.

By following these steps, you can actively address the issue of mismatch between actual TDS deductions and the TDS credit reflected in Form 26AS. It is essential to take proactive measures to reconcile any discrepancies and ensure that your tax records are accurate and up-to-date.
