When tax filing your refunds in India, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. We, at India Refunds, have got you covered. Our tax filing refund checklist is all you need while filing your tax returns in India.
Final Tax Refund Checklist before filing for returns:
The first step is to go over all your incomes, deductions, and exemptions. The documents to review are as follows:
Form 16 issued by your employer to verify whether the income was captured correctly.
Form 16A issued by a tax deductor on the deduction of taxes for any payments made towards bank interest, commission, professional fees, etc.
Form 26AS, which displays various taxes deducted from your income by your employer, bank, or others during the financial year. It also displays details of any advance tax, self-assessment tax paid by you, tax collected at source, any refunds received, etc. Form 26AS is available on your e-filing portal.
Your annual information statement or taxpayer's information summary should be downloaded from the AIS dropdown given on the e-filing portal.
Your bank statements!
Any capital gain Profit and Loss account statements.
Any housing loan certificate.
Receipts for any donations made during the FY.
Rental agreement/rent receipts in case of any rental income received by you or any rent paid by you.

Your FA Foreign Asset Schedule, as applicable for Residents and Ordinarily Residents of India for assets held overseas.
