Check TDS deduction, income tax refund Online

Posted in Finance, Income Tax, India.

Just out of curiosity and to learn more, for past few years, I have been calculating tax, making whatever extra payment other than TDS online, filling return forms and submitting tax return myself. I am always excited to try new ways government implements.

I registered myself 3 years back to view tax credits paid by my employer as TDS. You can also register here : Check you tax credits. You can also download Form 26 AS here and see how much tax has been deposited on your name from your employer or any other firm.

You can view it to verify if the tax payments made by you or TDS deducted from salary or interest etc are correctly reported to the income tax department. You can also check income tax refund from previous year in the same form.

Now the same can also be checked from View Tax credit statement (Form 26 AS) section under  “My Account” menu in Income tax e-filing website after login.

    Is it essential to send Form ITR V to Bangalore, if I have not filled by form by e-filing method. I went to ITO to deposit the same. My refund gets delayed by 18 to 36 months

    • Pankaj Batra says

      @Akhilesh
      If you have not filed online, there is no need to send ITR-V to Bangalore. You will have to deposit ITR form to income tax office in that case.
      In case you want faster refunds, you should file online.

    • Pankaj Batra says

      @Vikas
      You should get form-16A from bank which should have whole TDS amount mentioned in it.
      Once you have this, you can file income tax return to get extra amount deducted as refund.

    Hi Pankaj,

    I have to get the IT Refund for the Financial Year 2005-2006, I have filed ITR-I that time and filled bank A/C.
    And 6 months later I moved to another company and the aforementioned A/C got closed.
    Now, Is there any way to get that refund back? If Yes, please tell me the procedure to get the refund back.
    Thanks in advance….

    Hello sir,
    I want to submit my form 16a return for money. As I was worked in a private organisation, they deducted 10% of my salary as TDS and they given the forms too,
    Now I have the forms with me, now I want to file those copies for the cash refund.
    Please give me any suggestion from your side.

    • Pankaj Batra says

      @Bharadwaj
      You would need to file income tax returns in order to claim refund of extra tax deducted.
      As form-16A has been issued, it looks like you have worked as consultant and not as an salaried employee, so this income would be treated as income from business/profession.
      You would need to file returns with ITR-4 form. Under section 44AA and 44AB, you may require account maintenance or audit depending on where you fit into on basis of gross receipts.
