How to view Form 26AS Online ?

by Manish Chauhan · 147 comments

Form 26AS is a consolidated statement which reflects all the advance tax paid by you personally or through TDS/TCS way. The best part about it is that you can view Form 26AS online by just quoting your PAN Number. You can view your Form 26AS online or download it in PDF or Excel format, but for that you need to register on the income tax website.

Why do we need Form 26AS ?

We all check our bank accounts when some one deposits money into it . Once we see that the amount is matching, we feel at peace and confirmed that there is no issue . Now in the same way through out the year, we might pay the tax in parts . It can be in form of Advance tax cut by our companies, TDS cut by the bank on your fixed deposits , TDS cut by some third party who is making payment to us . They all pay this tax on our behalf to tax department and it is linked to our PAN card.

Now at the end of the year before filing for tax returns, we might want to check that how much tax is already paid by us through different ways and then we might want to pay additional remaining tax or ask for a refund in case we see that we paid more tax in a year.

An important point to note is, do not disclose your PAN information to someone else , otherwise it becomes a security issue . Others can also view your Form 26AS and hence find out how much tax you paid :) .

How to view Form 26AS online ?

1. Go to this website : https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/portal/index.do

2. Register your PAN Card and password (search for REGISTER)

3. Once you are registered , go to Login page (Search for LOGIN)

4. Go to “My Account” section (at the top) and sub section - “View Tax Credit Statement (Form 26AS)”

5. Choose assessment year , date of birth and click SUBMIT

6. It will ask you for confirmation to redirect to NSDL website to view your form 26AS

7. Click on the bottom button which says “View Form 26AS

8. You can now see your Form 26AS

Direct link to Form 26AS in your netbanking ?

Yes, A lot of banks like ICICI , SBI etc provide a direct link to your form 26AS through internet banking. On clicking the link, You can directly see 26A.

Did you knew this information already ? Would you like to share some of your past experience when you needed form 26AS online and how it was useful to you?

Hi Manish, don’t we have to submit Physical form to NSDL after online registeration?
I registered for online access to the Form 26AS and then I had to submit the printout of the generated from to NSDL. The NSDL person came to my home to collect the form and I paid him Rs. 114 for home service. If I had submitted form myself I would have to pay only Rs. 17.

Later, I realized that I can see the form through my Netbanking account too.

Hi, when I looked at my form26a from ICICI direct link – my previous employer Did not paid to incometax dept what he deducted from my salary ( deducted from my salary 56000, but he paid to IT 17500). Need your guidelines to take next course of action on this.
Thanks for this article.

Hi Kishore,

In this regard , you need to approach your employer alongwith the printout of Form 26AS and explain him about the difference. It may so happen that he may not have filed e tds return yet or even if any mistake is being committed from employer’s end, the same can be rectified by way of filing revised TDS return by an employer.

9 Tejas June 28, 2012 at 10:08 pm

If I am able to get form 26A, do I still absolutely need to have physical forms from banks etc where tds has been deducted?

Can I use the data from form 26A (assuming it is all correct) in filing ITR?

Reply

10 AMIT DOSHI June 29, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Yes Tejas.. it may so happen that inspite of reflection of TDS credit in Form 26AS, I T department may not grant you the credit and in such scenario you may have to file a rectification petition u/s 154 of the I Tax act before your jurisdictional Income Tax officer [ ITO] alongwith original TDS certificate which inturn shall enable ITO to give the due TDS credit. So always ask for Original TDS Certificates inspite of reflection in Form 26AS

Till 31st Oct 2012 Tax Information Network (TIN) by NSDL(tin-nsdl.com) was used to collect information about Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) on behalf of Income Tax Department (ITD).

Now Income Tax Department (ITD), has started a new initiative TRACES or TDS Reconciliation Analysis and Correction Enabling System. The new portal has been created to enhance swift interaction between the deductor, deductee, income-tax department and CPC.

TRACES website has details about the Advance Tax submitted in Dec.
Our article TDS, Form 26AS and TRACES covers it in detail.

Hi,

Same Case is with me. From my SBI net banking when I tried 26AS I’m getting error message that my PAN is not mapped. I have submitted PAN to the bank. When I called them about this mapping, they said they I’ve to contact NSDL Is it correct? I doubt. Most of bank people are not aware of online services- that is my observation.

Reply

23 Giridhar July 5, 2012 at 4:05 pm

It is nothing to do with NSDL. NSDL is only a medium. The bank has to refile the TDS return mapping the TDS with PAN.

After my 3month battle with Axis bank now they have updated my account but still struggling for my fathers account.

Informative article.

Initially i tried to get myself enrolled through NSDL and paid Rs 100 or so. But due to some communication gap they didnot materialise. This is about 2 years back. I also left it as i didnot think of it much then.

Then there was a query from IT dept for checking my IT returns of 2004-05. In that year i paid 22400 as assessment tax in Jul 2005. But i lost those documents and i am not able to prove the same. IT dept told me to pay Rs 56000 or so as penalty. I didnot know what to do.

Then, by chance, i checked my 26AS and there it was, payment of self assessment tax. I could escape without paying anything for that year.

Then i started to take real interest and cross checking the numbers yearly.

If some TDS is not reflecting in this one has to follow up with the deductor so that that will appear in this statement. Else, they can have problems in Return assessment(if need be).

Thanks

Means some one has used your PAN to register , this might be the case. Do one thing , do a password recovery process and then mail the tax department (or talk to customer care) that you are the one who own that PAN , show them proof etc . May be they disable it !

Seems details of TDS in it is only one of its purposes. The form also has details of mutual fund/shares/bond transactions (seems its listed in this form only if they the transaction amount is above a thresold or so). Does anyone how the details in this section are used by IT dept… is it used to cross-verify if ppl are reporting all profits or not or something like tht?

46 Manish Chauhan July 4, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Which section are you talking about, I think form 26AS only has TDS info , not overall investments information

Reply

47 Chaitanya July 4, 2012 at 10:21 pm

After part C , there’s a section with heading “Details of Transactions of Mutual Fund, Shares and Bonds (as reported by AIR filer)” in which MF payments of > Rs. 1L are listed. And after this section is the “Details of Paid Refund” This is in FY 2010-11 form.

But in FY 2011-12 form, the MF section is totally mising (after Part C, it directly mentions “Details of Paid Refund”). Not sure if they removed it altogether in FY 2011-12 or its not there js coz I didnt make any payments more than Rs. 1L in MFs in this year.

Seems i cant upload screenshot in comments?

Form 26AS contains 5 parts.
1) TDS deducted
2) Tax collected at Source (TCS)
3)Income tax directly paid. eg. Advance Tax
4)Refunds which are to be paid to us.
5)Details of tranaction of Mutaul funds and shares

Fifth part may not get displayed unless you have done this type of transaction.

I’m even surprised IT department itself (deductee similar to banks) has shown 2 entries, and a further enquiry with Bangalore IT call center confirmed that IT dept deducts TDS on the interest earned on refund due.

These mutual funds entries are not at all transparent. Some are shown, and many are not seen. Because PAN number is used across multiple platforms, IT dept may very well know all our history.

I don’t think IT dept verifies, until unless the transactions appear fradulent. I’m sure small fishes, like many people here, need not worry.

Hello Manish!
Its Good to see the way you clarify our doubts. I too got one problem. I don’t know whether this is the appropriate place to comment here or not.

Actually I got some affiliate commission and the company also deducted TDS as per norms. This is also reflected in Form 26AS.

But actually I don’t come under taxable income limit. I ‘m not even a salaried employee. So is it possible to get back the TDS deducted via income tax return.

If yes tell me which ITR form should I used to get back the deducted TDS? In Form 26 AS it is mentioned that the commission is deducted under the section 194H (which is particularly for commission and brokerage.)

Help from your side is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

59 Manish Chauhan July 13, 2012 at 10:56 am

Yes you should ask for refund and you should be able to get back all the money , you need to file ITR 1 only .

One more thing I have to clarify. You said that I have to file ITR 1. But in that form it is mentioned that it is just for persons who receive income via salary/pension. Since I don’t have this type of income I think I don’t come under this category.

Will the affiliate commission comes under Busineess or profession? If yes then I think ITR 4 is the best option. Correct me if I am wrong. I am not sure at all. This is the first time I will have to file Return.

Reply

62 Giridhar July 15, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Am I right that, to do e-filing, we need unique certificate number of the the TDS (and hence form16). So Form26A/S is not sufficient as it doesn’t give the TDS cert number. This unique number seems to have been introduced from this year.

I will verify it after a week and update the comments section of how it goes as well.

Hi, Information furnished on this website are very helpful.

I have one question, for the current assessment year Form 16 and Form 26AS details for TDS is not matching. Form 26AS shows some unusual entries as Salary (From my employer only). and it show higher amount as Salary (and also TDS) in my account.

Where as in actual I got the Form 16 which is correct. I did inquiry with my Payroll and they say your revised data has been sent and it will reflect very soon. The last date for IT return in nearing but still since last one month the correct details on 26AS is not updated?

My question do I need to wait for 26AS to be corrected or I can go ahead with IT return as per Form 16 received by the employer..

Reply

72 Manish Chauhan July 20, 2012 at 10:46 am

You can go ahead with your form 16 , Form 26AS is just for your information purpose , you must be clear about your TDS cut in the year , just make sure you consider it , form 26AS is just to make sure you confirm the reflection of TDS cut using Form 26As

I noticed that a new TDS CPC website has been launched but registration doesn’t seem to be working as of now. Also, on the TIN site, they’re saying that Form 26AS details have been updated only till 31 October, 2012.

Here’s the source:
https://www.tin-nsdl.com/view-tax-credit/viewcredit-faq-general.php

Under the question “How are the details of TDS/TCS are displayed in Form 26AS?” the last line states that “Form 26AS generated at TIN contains details of TDS/TCS statements processed at TIN upto October 31, 2012 only.”

Could this be reason why Form 26AS is not yet updated with Advance Tax paid in the first week of December 2012?

Any updates or clues about this would be useful.

I have the exact same question. Until recently, Form26AS used to be updated on a daily basis with latest information. Now they don’t display information processed after Oct 31, 2012 (3.5 months old data). I don’t know why IT dept is taking a step backwards :(

Thanks a lot Manish. I am able to register in the new TRACES website and view the updated Form26AS.

A word of caution for new user registration:

The website is not able to handle the traffic and lot of pages don’t work the first time. When registering as a tax-payer, you have to give your Name, PAN, Bank Challan/TDS details, most of the time, I received ‘Invalid Details’ error immediately (i.e., the webpage is not connecting to the server itself). I tried ‘refresh’ on this page at least 30 times, re-enter the details, and finally it connects to the server and I can proceed further in the registration. Even in the next pages, the website times out a lot of times. You have to click refresh & try again ( I tried 10 times in the next step). At last, I was able to register.

Thanks a lot. I too was able to register after a lot of trial and error. The main hitch seems to be the constitution of the password. It should be a combination of lower case, upper case alphabets, special characters such as # and so on.

My question is, what prevents the authorities from taking the taxpayers into confidence? I was perplexed for quite some time.

Hi Manish,

I have a demand notice from the income tax department for AY 2007-08. I am not able to check the form 26AS for the Assessment year 2007-08 on the new TRACES website as it only shows the form 26AS from AY 2009 onwards. Is there any place where I can see my form 26AS for the older Assessment years?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Manish,

I have been a regular reader for your posts and they are very informative.
I have a question related to 26AS form for HDFC fixed deposit. The total interest for an year does not exceed 5000Rs hence no TDS is deducted for the deposit. Any idea if the entry of the same (no TDS deducted but interest paid) is indicated in 26AS? The entry can be in any heading in 26AS to indicate the interest payout. The reason to ask is if no entry, then manual calc or seperate interest certificate needs to asked for calc total income during IT return filing. HDFC informs me that they do not add entry in 26AS in any heading for such interest and only interest statement is issues. Banks on other hand indicate total interest paid with TDS paid as “0″ even if form15g/h is submitted. Are there any rules difference for NBFC than banks?
Thanks.

There is no entry in Form 15G if its not related to TDS , simple !

Reply

112 meabhi March 9, 2013 at 1:14 am

I am not sure if I got your response. My question is.. if TDS is not deducted incae of company fixed deposit due to interest <5000Rs, then does the form 26AS indicate the total interest paid? It will definetly not indicate TDS deduction but does it indicate the total payout with TDS deduction stated as "0".

Reply

113 CA Karan Batra March 11, 2013 at 11:14 am

If you’ve furnished Form 15G/Form 15H, the Interest paid would surely be shown in Interest Paid Column in Form 26AS.

However, in the TDS deducted Column – Nil would be shown.

Not sure on this .. but you can always find out the ways like PROXY !

127 vijay khanna May 31, 2013 at 4:40 pm

did not get it. do you mean every NRI should have someone in India and request them to find out by logging in within India? it is a ridiculus on part of Indian government to force NRIs to resort to this practice. There is no reason put forward by the government in support of its decision for not allowing NRIs to look into their 26as form even after logging in to their bank account (which should be considered safe).

I am also facing the same scenario. I have a demand notice for missing TDS for Assessment year 2008-2009. Since the 26AS forms are no longer available online, how do we show the IT department that the TDS has been deducted ?

Is there any other way to get older 26AS ?

Dear Manish – I am also facing the same issue. I need to verify the 26AS for 2008-09 and they are not available online. I read on internet that one can send a email to ‘tininfo@nsdl.co.in’. On sending email on this ID, they replied back to connect with contactus@tdscpc.gov.in. I sent the email to this ID and also tried calling on the helpline. But there has been no response. It would be great if you could help us with the detailed procedure to manage this issue.

Dear Manish,
The tax deductions for rent payments received do not show up in 26AS as the co says my pan details were wrongly mentioned ,and they say they have taken up the matter for correcting the details .now if i E file my returns assuming the same ,do i invite trouble as they say the process will hardly take a weeks time to reflect in my tax credits and where as the it takes a months time for the IT dept to discover any mismatch ..

Hi Manish,

My 26 AS does not have entry of HSBC in it.
I’m wondering – how can they forget.
Isn’t this their responsibility to do that?

With this – there’s a potential chance of submitting the tax.
if the info is missing in 26 AS, do they charge penalty to the bank consumer or bank?

Thanks,
Sachin

Hi Manish,

Actually i am a senior citizen. I had 3 FDs with a Bank. The total amount of interest were more than 10000 and they have detucted some TDS from it. But when i see the 26AS of 2013-14 i see that 2 out of 3 charges are missing. Several times i have written emails to banking ombudsman of that bank but i have not received any word from them in this matter. Could you please tell me how serious this matter can go be if i inform RBI about it.

Thanks
Castial

Anyone cutting TDS has to update it to income tax website . If its not done , then you are liable to complain for it . Just that how much time has passed in this ?

Dear Manish,

Thank you so much for your quick answer. Actually i have been complaining to the bank for last 45 days but they are not giving me any kind of answer. Even i have addressed there ombudsman.But got not reply at all.

Actually i am above 60 and every penny i have earned i have made 3 fds and those are the primary source of my income now a days. That’s why i don’t want to bring any trouble to that bank. Do you think my investment will be safe if i sue the bank in front of RBI.
