ITR Filing 2024: The Income Tax return filing season has started. Along with the tax filing procedure, salaried individuals and taxpayers are also planning their taxes, and investments for this financial year. Basically, every taxpayer aims to look for ways to reduce their tax liability in a given financial year.

 Before filing income tax returns, the Income Tax Department is required to upload annual statements in new form 26AS containing the details of Tax Credits in the account of a taxpayer as per the records of the department. It is mandatory to prepare traces of Form 26AS under Rule 114I (Rule 31AB has been

omitted with effect from 1st June 2020) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

What is Form 26AS?

Form 26AS is the total summary of income, taxes deducted at source (TDS), taxes paid, and other related information of the individual or entity. Taxpayers can access Form 26AS by logging into their Income Tax Department account online. 

The form is a summary of the following:


> Tax deducted on behalf of the Taxpayer

> Tax collected on behalf of the Taxpayer

> Advance Tax and Self-Assessment Tax deposited by Taxpayer

> Refund, if any, paid by Income Tax Department to the individual

> Tax demand by the Income Tax department

> Annual Information Return (AIR) for high-value financial transactions 

> Form 26AS is the consolidated tax record by all deductors and collectors and is a guide for other authorities.

> Information related to high-value financial transactions, such as property, shares, mutual funds, etc.

> Information related to completed and pending proceedings.

The Income Tax Department stores taxpayers' total tax payments as tax credits in their accounts. Taxpayers can claim tax credits based on the information in their Form 26AS provided by the department.
