I joined the job in May 2020. But, my employer started deducting TDS from salary since Sep 2020.
Form 26AS is showing the salary amount from Sep 2020 onwards. Even provisional form 16 from TRACES website shows Salary from Sep 2020 only.
But, Form 16 from employer shows salary from May 2020 onwards.
However TDS is same in both the forms.
Which salary amount should I consider while filing ITR? Can I let go of the amount paid to me from May 2020 to Sep 2020.
Because, I think that Income tax dept verifies salary and TDS amount from 26AS only.
Or, do they have access to the form 16 issued by employer too.
Expert opinion requested.
