    Traces now has a online 26QB Correction facility and following fields and many of the fields can be corrected.

    But what should be done – if all details in 26QB are correct (and there is nothing to rectify), but during net-banking to pay the TDS, an in-correct amount is mentioned and debited from account.

    I my case I paid a substantially higher amount.
    Are there any guideline on how to get refund of the excess or adjust in your next IT filing.
