There could be several reasons due to which you may find credits missing in your form 26AS. In this guide we will discuss about the reasons and ways to rectify the missing credits in your credit statement.
Reasons for Mismatch Credits in Form 26AS:
Tax deductor / collector has failed to file periodic TDS return or TDS / TCS statement
Deductee (you) had failed to provide PAN to the tax deductor / collector
You may have provided incorrect PAN to the tax deductor / collector
Tax deductor / collector has made an error in quoting PAN of the Deductee in the TDS / TCS return
The tax deductor / collector had missed to quote your PAN
Details of relevant challan were wrongly quoted in the TDS return by the deductor or were wrongly quoted in the challan details uploaded by the bank.
To rectify these errors in your form 26AS, you should contact tax deductor and request him:
To file the TDS return if it is still pending
To use a PAN correction statement in the TDS return and rectify the PAN
To furnish a revised TDS return in case the tax deductor had filed TDS return but inadvertently missed providing correct details or in case deductee had not given PAN to deductor before filing of the TDS return
To provide a correction statement if the deductor had filed a TDS return which had error in the challan details
To take up with the bank to rectify any mistake in the amount in the challan details uploaded by the bank.
