TDS credit mismatching limit restricted to Rs. 5000 from 1 lac for processing of returns of A.Y. 2011-12

CBDT has revised its instructions relating to matching of TDS credit for processing of returns of A.Y. 2011-12. CBDT has withdrawn its earlier instruction No. 01/2012 issued on 2nd Feburary 2012.

Earlier in the withdrawn instruction it was instructed that TDS credit will be allowed if the mismatching in TDS doesnot exceed Rs. 1 lac. Now CBDT has revised this limit to Rs. 5000/- only.

Revised instructions are as follows:

Section 143 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 – Assessment – General – Processing of returns of A.Y. 2011-12 – Steps to clear backlog – Withdrawal of Instruction No. 1/2012, dated 2-2-2012
Instruction No. 4/2012 [F. No. 225/34/2011-ITA.II], dated 25-5-2012

The Board has decided to withdraw Instruction no. 01/2012 issued on 2nd February, 2012 on the subject above with immediate effect. The following decisions have been taken in this regard:

(i) In all returns (ITR-1 to ITR-6), where the difference between the TDS claim and matching TDS amount reported in AS-26 data does not exceed Rs. Five thousands, the TDS claim may be accepted without verification. (ii) Where there is zero TDS matching, TDS credit shall be allowed only after due verification.

(iii) Where there are TDS claims with invalid TAN, the TDS credit for such claims is not to be allowed.

(iv) In all other cases TDS credit shall be allowed after due verification.
