    If your employer made a mistake at the time of TDS return filing, i.e. wrong PAN number, less amount shown in form 26AS etc, and on your repeated request your employer or deductor is not filing a correction TDS return, then what is option with deductee, who is the sufferrer and looser. There should be some penalty or fine etc. on deductor for making mistakes, some time intensionally.

  7. RAKESH KUMAR JAIN says:

    This is a good solution for reducing mismatches between Form 16/16A and 26AS. But, it
    may cause a problem. If there are mistakes in 26AS e.g. wrongly reported Interest/Salary paid to Deductee or wrongly reported TDS then generated form 16/16A will also carry mistake. Finally, the solution will be that Deductor rectifies 26AS otherwise the Deductee will have problems with IT Return/Refund. So. even in this case too there is no easy solution for poor Deductee.
