The Income Tax Department had rolled out a new Annual Information System (AIS), a comprehensive statement containing details of all the financial transactions undertaken during a financial year and are at present available with the Income Tax Department, even broader than Form 26AS.

At present, Form 26AS is detailed by the Tax Department, which is a consolidated annual tax statement that includes information on tax deducted/collected at source, advance tax, and self-assessment that is available on the Income-Tax website against a taxpayer’s Permanent Account Number (PAN). The revised Annual Information Statement (AIS) includes additional categories of information of interest, dividend, securities transactions, mutual fund transactions, and remittances from abroad, along with information on many other transactions that are at present available with the Income Tax Department.

Salient Features of AIS:

  • Includes new information- Interest, dividend, securities transactions, mutual fund transactions, foreign remittance information etc.
  • Summary of information and generation of a simplified Taxpayer Information Summary (TIS) for ease of filing return (pre-filling will be enabled in a phased manner).
  • Taxpayer will be able to submit online feedback on the information displayed in AIS and also download information in PDF, JSON, CSV file formats.
  • AIS Utility will enable taxpayer to view AIS and upload feedback in offline manner.
  • Ease of reporting errors in AIS through feedback mechanism.

Accessing AIS on Portal:

Step 1: Login to the Income Tax e-filing Website by using the URL https://www.incometax.gov.in/.

Step 2: Click on “Annual Information Statement (AIS)” under “Services” tab from the e-filing portal after successful login on e-filing portal.

Step 3: Navigate to AIS Homepage. View Taxpayer Information summary (TIS) and Annual Information Statement (AIS)

Step 4: Select the relevant FY and click on AIS tile to view the Annual Information Statement.

Under the AIS option on the Income tax portal, there are two tabs – Annual Information statement (AIS) and Taxpayer Information Summary (TIS).

  • In case there is variation between the TDS/TCS information relating to tax payment as shown in the AIS on Compliance Portal and Form 26AS on TRACES, then the taxpayer can rely on the information present on the TRACES portal for filing of ITR and other tax compliance purposes
  • If the taxpayer feels that the information is incorrect, relates to another person/year, is a duplicate etc., a facility has been provided to submit feedback online. Feedback can also be furnished by submitting multiple information in bulk. An AIS Utility has also been provided for taxpayers to view AIS and upload feedback in offline manner. The reported value and value after feedback will be shown separately in the AIS. In case the information is modified/denied, the information source may be contacted for confirmation.

    I have tried the feed back system. I am not a software specialist. I must have spent atleast 2 weeks and atleast 3 hours each time. i am unable to understand how to tell them it is wrong. They have listed a IT Refund of FY 2010-11 under FY 2020-21 and the the dropdown list shows only from 2016-17. Even if I deny, I am unable do an upload “SUBIT” my feed back. I request the Government to come with a simple method rather tha the complicated terminologies like JSON DILE, CSV, IMPORT, EXPORT, MERGE, ETC.
    WHY NOT A FEED BACK WITH A TICK AND A COMMENT “WRONG” IN AIS ITSELF?
    Are they expecting every citizen, by the way I am a Super Senior Citizen, to audit the wrong reports given by someone and tell the Department that they are wrong?

    1. Assumption is that tax payers are software engineers who can operate Jason utility or Java utility with impunity which is not the case.
    2. As super senior citizens are allowed to file returns manually, they may be allowed to send by e mail their objections to the designated authority or jurisdictional ITO .
    3. Some alternative mechanism should be provided for tax payers who are not technically savvy
