If you are a taxpayer whose mobile number is yet to be linked to an Aadhaar card, then your password can be reset by using an authentic digital signature certificate on the e-filing income tax portal. And also you can use other options like logging into Internet banking, said the department.
The IT Department also clarified that a taxpayer should analyze his record books and provide the information in an income tax return.
Banks can take up to 2-3 days to provide information to the IT department. Usually, the information gets updated with the ITR data.
As long as the data related to taxes paid is not reflected in ITR, the taxpayers can choose to wait for the required time period.
“In cases where the taxpayer has already filled in additional details over and above pre-filled details, the taxpayers can enter such payment details manually after clicking on the ‘Add Details’ link for advance tax and self-assessment tax payment details under schedule ‘Taxes Paid’.”
If you do not have an e-filing OTP, then you can bypass this process and use an authentic Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) to reset the password. Another way is to directly login into an e-filing account through Internet Banking.
“The DSC should be linked to the PAN card of the taxpayer and the user can reset the password even if the certificate is not registered on the portal,” as per IT Department.
“In the situation of difference between income as shown in AIS and 26AS, the department clarified that income reflected in AIS and 26AS is based on information received from different sources and tax compliance made by different stakeholders.
