'Form 26AS' or in simple terms you can call it your 'tax credit statement' is provided by the income tax department to all the tax payers. It acts a proof that the tax received from you has reached the government and has been credited against your Permanent Account Number (PAN) (http://www.personalfn.com/knowledge-center/tax-savings/views-on-news/13-0213/are_you_are_a_pan_holder_not_filing_tax_returns_read_this.aspx). Ideally all the payments made by you as tax should get reflected in the Form 26AS. If any of your tax payments (http://www.personalfn.com/knowledge-center/Money-Simplified.aspx) in the assessment year is not reflecting in this statement, then it means the tax money deducted from you has not been submitted to the tax department till the date of record. How do I get my Form 26AS?

Incase if any of the issue has not been resolved by the deductor, then you can contact Aaykar Sampark Kendra (ASK) at 0124-2438000 or Central Processing Center (CPC) of TDS.

Even if you purchased your new home in 2012, it may be possible for you to qualify for a tax credit of 20 percent of the mortgage interest you pay each year, for the next three decades. This credit is only offered by certain mortgage lenders, so read the fine print. If your tax bracket is too high, you may also be ineligible. PREVIOUS
