pri How can we check our TDS Credit? How can we check our TDS Credit?

We are always worried about the fact that whether our TDS deductor/collector has filed quarterly TDS/TCS statement and provided our PAN while filing the TDS/TCS return. Therefore, today I am covering this topic in my article as to how can we check or cross confirm our TDS credit?

Following Are the ways via which we can cross confirm the TDS details:

1. TDS Certificate (Form 16/ 16A) Verification by the Taxpayer

Step – I – Visit

Step – II – Enter the Captcha code and click on Proceed

Step – III – Fill the requisite details such as “TAN of Deductor”, “PAN of Tax Payer”, “TDS Certificate Number”, “Financial Year”, “Source of Income” and “TDS Amount Deducted as per Certificate” and click on “Validate”

Step – IV – TDS/TCS credit can also be checked by giving some details like “PAN of Deductee”, “TAN of Deductor”, “Financial Year” “Quarter” and “Type of Return” and click on “Go”.

2. Form 26AS:

An annual tax credit statement is generated by the income tax department for a person subjected to TDS (deductee) in Form 26AS. The statement provides details such as name of the deductee, PAN of deductee, details of deductor, the TDS amount, the amount of TDS deposited with the Government by the deductor etc.

The user can download the statement from the income tax e-filing website. This statement is linked to your PAN and contains details of all your TDS -by employers as well as others (e.g. banks etc).

The link to download Form 26AS from TRACES can be found after logging into your account on the income tax e-filing site.

It can also be downloaded via your net banking account provided that your bank provides the e-filing login facility. The list of banks providing this facility is available at:

    What is the recourse available if the Employer deducts the income tax from Salary but fails to deposit the Income Tax. The Salary Slips indicate the deduction of the Income Tax at Source.

    In view of the above, i am apprehensive about the receipt of the Form-16 which will be hard to come by.

    I request the Tax Guru team to help me find a solution to this problem. I have to file my return within the next 40 days… and possibly also claim a Refund.

    Thanking the Taxguru team in anticipation,
