    I paid self assessment tax on 19/07/2013 and submitted ITR before this amount got reflected in TRACES. I am getting reminders even today to pay that amount. I responded in the system by providing details, but still it is not corrected in the system. what to do?

    Corporate Assessee filed return for AY 2014-15 within due date.
    Committed the following errors:
    TDS in 26AS is 10 lakh. TDS shown in return 15 lakh.
    Self Assessment Tax paid in April 2014, 12 lakh reflected in 26AS but erroneously mentioned in the return as 6 lakh.
    No rectification return submitted.
    Taken up as limited scrutiny.
    Assessment order passed in August 2016.
    Directed to pay interest u/s 234 and tax shortfall.
    Paid 234 interest and again paid 6 lakh towards self assessment tax.
    Realised the error of double payment of 6 lakh towards self assessment tax in Jan 2017.
    Any scope for rectification and refund.

    Paid self assessment tax in SBI on 23-06-16 which is not reflected in 26As even on 03-7-16. Can the responsibility for this delay be fixed to the system?

    1. Hi Debdatta

    I deposited self assessment tax on 27.05.2016. It was received by TIN on 30.05.2016. Stll it is not reflecting in my 26AS. How long will it take pls? Any idea?

    1. Hi Vinay

      I suggest that you now take the RTI route. You can file the RTI and ask your queries to them. THey are bound to reply you on your queries.

      Its a bit long cut, but works well

    Recently I paid self assessment tax online and within five or six days I was able to see my tax paid entry in Form 26AS online. It does not take that long for sure. But definitely it does not reflect within two days.

  11. Dear Anirban, as the new site is not working properly, it may take a longer time than usual.

    It takes about 3-4 days to reflect in your form 26AS.
