    No expert is giving reason that 26AS downloaded & matched with Forms 16A can be different to 26AS data with CPC (E-Filing) thus showing Mismatch in E-Filing. E-Filing Mismatch shows less amount in 26AS whereas 26AS downloaded shows correct amount.

    I am holidaying in USA on a private visit.
    I am not able to view my AS26 while I am in USA.
    Will the Income Tax Department look into this issue.

  3. K.P.Srinivasan says:

    I have come to USA on a visit to see my daughters. Till I came here, the details in Form 26AS was not complete and so I waited till date to file my incometax return. When I wanted to access Form 26AS to find out whether it is complete, I am asked to register as NRI (may be I am accessing it from USA). This is meaningless. I should be able to access form 26AS without any difficulty no matter whether I am in India or USA. Will the department look into this difficulty, since I want to file my return atleast by the end of this month.
