TDS not received by IT dept

Hi Pankaj, For the AY 2013-13 my employer consistently deducted TDS from my salary and I was provided a form 16 in June last year basis which I filed my returns. Last week I recieved a communication from Income Tax where they had indicated that the tax calculated for my income still remains due and had shown 0 (zero) Rs as tax deducted at source. I have been asked to respond in 30 days. Could you please help me understand how should I reply to this, what documents as proof do I need to obtain from my employer. Also I have left that job and am working with a new employer now.

First, you should check form 26AS on income tax efiling website. If this shows tax deposit under your name with same figure as shown in Form 16, you can file rectification request on efiling website asking them to reconsider the return.

In case form 26AS does not show same figures, you should ask previous employer to update same. If employer is not helping, submit a written request to assessing officer in income tax office along with form-16 copy to clear demand.
