Download 26AS (Tax Credit Statement) from Bank

How to view & download Form 26AS from your Bank?

Income Tax Department insists on matching TDS certificates with 26AS. You have three different options to view and download your 26AS. You can download using any of the three options however I feel that mostly people find it convenient to download 26AS through net banking as generally net banking credentials are clear in our mind & we dont struggle for locating the log-in details.

How to download 26AS through your e-filing account at Income Tax portal

Step by Step Process to View & Download 26AS from your Net Banking

  • Log in to your Net Banking Account.
  • Now in your Account locate Something like Tax Centre, Income Tax or e-services etc. Every bank has its own idea or system of navigation to 26AS, you need to locate that. I have done it for ICICI Bank & SBI Bank:
For account with ICICI Bank, go to Payments & Transfer at the top navigation and then in Payments & Transfer go to Tax Centre

For SBI Bank Accounts First go to E-services, in there go to My Certificates
