Default Here are top 10 clarifications sought by taxpayers on ITR filing

Here are top 10 clarifications sought by taxpayers on ITR filing

  • Taxpayers with mobile numbers not linked to Aadhaar can reset password on income tax e-filing portal using a valid digital signature certificate or by logging into internet banking, the I-T department has said.
  • It also said that a taxpayer should check his book of records and provide information in the I-T return as per the information available with him.
  • To a query on self-assessment tax paid but not reflecting in pre-filled details on the portal, the I-T department said it takes 3 to 4 days for different banks to provide information to the department. Post that, it gets updated in the tax-returns/pre-filled data.
  • Taxpayer may opt to wait for required time-period for auto reflecting details of the taxes paid in ITR.
  • Alternatively, in such cases where taxpayer has already filled in additional details over and above the pre-filled details, such payment details can be entered manually after clicking on ‘Add Details’ link for advance tax and self-assessment tax payment details under schedule ‘Taxes Paid’,” the I-T department said.
  • To a query on resetting password without e-filing OTP (in cases where registered mobile number has changed)/Aadhaar OTP (where mobile is not linked to Aadhaar or if Aadhaar is not linked to PAN), user can reset password using a valid Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) or can login directly through internet banking into e-filing account.
  • The DSC should be linked to the PAN of the taxpayer and user can reset password even if DSC is not registered on the portal,” it said.
  • In instances of difference between income as shown in AIS and 26AS, the I-T department clarified that income reflected in AIS and 26AS are based on information received from different sources and tax compliance made by different stakeholders. These are made available to the taxpayer for reference purpose.
  • If there is variation between the TDS/TCS or tax payments as provided in Form 26AS and the TDS/TCS or tax payments provided in AIS, the taxpayer may rely on the TDS/Tax payment information provided in 26AS for the purpose of filing of tax return and for computing pre-paid taxes.
