Annual Information System

Annual Information System

Annual Information System is a system used by the Indian government to collect and maintain information about various social welfare schemes run by the government. The AIS is used by government officials and agencies to collect, store, and analyze data about the beneficiaries of these schemes and the funds disbursed under them.

A DETAILED GUIDE ON ANNUAL INFORMATION SYSTEM(AIS)

INTRODUCTION

Annual Information Statement (AIS) is a utility/ form available on Income Tax Portal which displays all the financial and tax related information available with the Tax Department with regard to the taxpayer.

It is an extension of an earlier available form, called 26AS, on the portal which contained the information only upon taxes deducted and deposited during the year along with the summary of Specified Financial Transactions (SFT).

Now,Annual Information Statement (AIS) has brought in added features to the old form 26AS by showcasing information upon bank interest earned, dividend income and sale of securities, in addition to tax related information.

All Information System enables to taxpayers to get a comprehensive view of all the financial information available with the department and accordingly proceed with tax related matters.

Also, taxpayers can find details about all material transactions such as sale of listed securities, mutual funds, dividends and interests received, foreign remittances at one place. This will give ease in return filing and others forms.

Apart from this,Annual Information Statement (AIS) has an added functionality of accepting feedback from taxpayers. The taxpayers can view their financial information in Annual Information Statement (AIS) and in case of any disagreement, they may submit their feedback for amendment of such information.

The Tax Information Statement (TIS) will then show edited financial information after incorporating such feedbacks.

 An AIS is divided into two parts:

Part A: General Information It displays general information related to a taxpayer such as his name, PAN, Aadhar Number, date of birth, contact details and address.

Part B: Tax Information Statement (TIS)

1. TDS/TCS: This section displays information about tax deducted at source/ tax collected at source in relation to a taxpayer. It is similar to the information displayed in Form 26AS.

2. SFT Information: This section displays information received by tax department from various reporting entities like banks and NBFCs with regard to specified financial transaction undertaken by the taxpayer during the year like purchase/ sale of immovable property.

3. Payment of Taxes: It displays the quantum of taxes paid by the taxpayer like advance tax, self-assessment tax along with the details like date of payment, challan number etc.

4. Demand and Refund: It displays details regarding any outstanding demand of tax by the department, their quantum and current status at that point of time. It also shows if any refund has been initiated with respect to any assessment year.
