The Income Tax Department has recently rolled out the new Annual Information Statement (AIS) on its compliance Portal which provides a comprehensive view of information to a taxpayer with a facility to capture online feedback. The new AIS includes additional information relating to interest, dividend, securities transactions, mutual fund transactions, foreign remittance information, etc. As a result, the Income Tax Department has issued some dos and don'ts for the convenience of taxpayers. Through a Tweet, the department has reported that "Caveat! There are some Do's & Don'ts which the taxpayer must follow to have a seamless experience in the AIS utility."
- Use the latest version of the AIS utility.
- Give feedback on the information displayed in AIS.
- Check your TIS to confirm the values used for pre-filing of return.

- Use the AIS utility to view AIS and provide feedback if the transactions count is high.

- Don't provide incorrect feedback on the AIS information.
- Don't share your e-filing credentials with anyone.
