    Unfortunately, the IT numbers given are not responsive. Further, ‘ask me’ email is also not operational, presumably due to server problems. My refund has been wrongly held up by wrongly stating that that specified bank account is not linked to Pan card while the fact of the matter is that the account was always connected to Pan. The IT portal also wrongly displayed that refund has been effected. In a nutshell, simple problems of tax payers is yet not efficiently addressed.

    I have filed my ITR-1 under section 139(1) on 06/07/2020 (Jul 6, 2020) Acknowledgement No : 383328540060720 well before due date. My ITR is incorrectly processed and i was asked to pay demand instead of getting refund. IT says my TDS is Rs. 1,30,709. My actual TDS paid is Rs. 1,48,304. Form 16 and form 26 AS clearly shows TDS paid is 148304. Some error someone made, im not sure from where TDS Rs. 1,30,709 came into picture. Im sorry to say i have been waiting for refund more than 2 years, raised so many grievances, called customer support more than 50 times, went to ITO, HMT Bhawan so many times. ITO, HMT Bhawan kept saying data is with CPC we waiting for the date. I went to CPC in person last week (01/17/2022), some officer told me please file offline rectification. When i raise rectification, it will ask me to call customer care. I roamed like Dog Sir to get my refund. I have speech disability, i was forced to talk and get humiliated due to this roaming. Due to your incorrect processing im asked to pay my demand with interest. Please note im suppose to pay tax 138753, my TDS paid is 148304. So i should get refund 148304-138753 equals 9551 plus interest. I tried reaching out to some CA they demanding 4 to 5K. To get my refund for the fault of ITO, i need to hire CA and pay 5K. I have spent lot of time and already wasted more money travelling to IT offices.
