The AIS application is an update to Form 26AS, which displays Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) and Tax Collected at Source (TCS) data, as well as information on advance tax and self-assessment tax. Additionally, the AIS application will provide refund information.
The AIS app is basically a free mobile solution providing a comprehensive view of the Annual Information System, which is a collection of various information about taxpayers.Now, refund information will now be accessible on the AIS application.

Since AIS keeps track of all financial transactions from the past year, taxpayers should refer to it while filling out their ITR. If the ITR has already been filed and there is a discrepancy in income, taxpayers should file a revised ITR to avoid receiving a notice from the department.
