I made an error while paying my self-assessment tax for the assessment year (AY) 2022-2023. Instead of selecting AY 2022-2023, I mistakenly chose AY 2021-2022 for which I had zero earnings and should not owe any tax. Unfortunately, I have received a demand for Rs. 90,000 for AY 2021-2022 as a result of this mistake.
To make matters more complicated, for AY 2023-2024, I was entitled to a tax refund of Rs. 60,000, but it was adjusted against the demand for AY 2021-2022.
Now, I'm eager to correct this mistake, clear the tax dues for AY 2021-2022, and obtain my refund for AY 2023-2024. I'd appreciate guidance on how to proceed with these corrections and adjustments.
Ans: Kindly file written application to Jurisdiction assessing officer. Officer will be able to correct the year and you will receive refund in AY 2022-23
