Form 26AS is a statement generated on TRACES portal of Income tax department which provides detail of tax deducted, tax collected, tax paid, SFT information, tax refund and GST turnover of an assessee.
Recently we had seen that Income tax department had introduced AIS and TIS for providing this information along with some other detailed information such as share and mutual fund transaction reported under SFT etc.
However, in past 1-2 days we have seen that Income Tax department has changed the format and nature of information being displayed in Form 26AS wherein they have removed the details of tax paid by assessee under Advance tax or self assessment tax or tax on regular assessment in Form 26AS, SFT information and GST turnover information and has introduced a new information to provide details in relation to TDS u/s 194R and 194S.
Because of the above reason many assessee who use software to import Form 26AS or use Form 26AS to check and calculate Advance tax paid by them till date are under panic as they are unable to find the value of Advance tax paid by them.
They need not worry and can have a look at AIS/ TIS to find value of advance tax being paid by them as 15th March is approaching which is the due date to pay 4th installment of Advance tax. Further, the software providers should incorporate a mechanism so that advance tax details are imported from AIS/ TIS.
It is important to note here that Income tax department has not issued any circular/ notification to amend the schema of Form 26AS as on date.
