Form 26AS is a consolidated Tax Credit statement that shows the tax credited against the Permanent Account Number (PAN) of a taxpayer and paid to the Income Tax Department of India. It is imperative for the taxpayers to check their Form 26AS while filing Income Tax returns to ensure that correct amount of Tax was deducted at source, under correct PAN card details and paid to the government on time. Also it is advisable that you must declare all incomes while filing your Income Tax Return, as in case there is any income the details of which are mentioned in Form 26 AS but not disclosed in the Income Tax Returns, you may be served a notice by the IT Department.

And this Part A1 will show “No transactions present” if you haven't submitted either of 2 forms mentioned above. Part A2 contains the details of amount paid and TDS deduction from receipts if any property was sold during the year.

2. The Part B of ITR Form 26AS shows details of TCS i.e. Tax Deducted at Source, in case of an individual who is a seller and is collecting tax, the details of Tax Collected at Source (TCS) will be contained in Part B.
