What’s the role of online Feedback option?

A service has been made available for the taxpayer to make online feedback if they consider the record is erroneous or is duplicate. Taxpayers can also use an AIS Utility to monitor AIS and input feedback in an offline mode. In the AIS, the stated figure and the value following feedback will be displayed separately. If the information is changed or rejected, the source of the information may be addressed for verification.

Taxpayers should and should review the information in the Annual Information Statement (AIS) and submit feedback if any of it needs to be changed. While submitting the ITR, the figure stated in the Taxpayer Information Summary (TIS) may be taken into account. If the ITR has already been submitted and some information has been left out, the return can be updated to add the missing information by the taxpayer.

What is Taxpayer Information Summary (TIS)?

For each taxpayer, a simplified Taxpayer Information Summary (TIS) has been prepared, which presents the taxpayer's aggregated value for simplicity of filing his or her income tax return. According to the Income Tax Department "TIS shows the processed value (i.e. the value generated after deduplication of information

based on predefined rules) and derived value (i.e. the value derived after considering the taxpayer feedback and processed value)." The resulting statistics in TIS will be immediately modified in real-time if the taxpayer submits feedback on AIS. The TIS-generated information will be utilized to pre-fill the return which will be permitted phase by phase.
