TDS Mismatch Rectification: How to Rectify TDS Mismatch

How to Proceed in case of TDS Mismatch:

(1) TAN of deductor was wrongly mentioned

(2) Name of deductor was not spelt out correctly

(3) Tax deducted by one deductor was wrongly included in the amount of tax deducted by another deductor.

The TDS mismatch may also be due to error in TDS return filed by deductor. In such a situation you should intimate the deductor about such error and tell him to rectify the TDS return.

In Press Note No. 402/92/2006, dated April 17, 2014 CBDT had noted that many taxpayers commit mistakes while furnishing details of tax credit in the return of income. Such mistakes include:

(a) Invalid/incorrect TAN of deductor;

(b) Furnishing same TAN for more than one deductor;

(c) Filing information in wrong TDS Schedules in the Return Form;

(d) Furnishing wrong challan particulars in respect of Advance tax, Self-assessment tax, etc.

Consequently, the tax credit could not be allowed to the taxpayers while processing returns despite the tax credit being available in Form 26AS statement. 

The CBDT, therefore, has directed the taxpayers to verify if the demand raised on them is due to tax credit mismatch on account of such incorrect particulars and submit rectification requests with correct particulars of TDS/tax claims for correction of these demands. 

The rectification requests have to be submitted to the jurisdictional Assessing Officer in case the return was processed by such officer, or the taxpayer is informed by CPC, Bangalore that such rectification is to be carried out by Jurisdictional Assessing Officer. 

In all other cases of processing by CPC, Bangalore, an online rectification request can be made (as defined above).
