Today Income Tax Department has announced rollout of a new statement - AIS (Annual Information Statement)

This will give u all details (well almost all!) about YOUR financial transactions during the year

This is a thread to tell u what it is and how do u get the AIS


First of all,

What is AIS (Annual Information Statement)?

You know earlier Income Tax used to give statement 26AS

AIS is a much detailed one - with many more details included - like your Savings Interest, all Mutual Fund txns during the year etc

Will 26AS be stopped?

a) Now you can get both 26AS and also AIS
b) Both put together, Income Tax department knows all your financial txns
c) And it's good as now you will find it very easy to know and submit details for your Income Tax returns

How to access my AIS?

a) Log in to your Income Tax account at
b) Go to Services Tab
c) Last option in this tab is the AIS option

Screenshot below
When u click on the AIS option in the above dropdown

it will open a new tab withbelow options

It has two options
a) Left side - Tax Information Summary (TIS)
b) Right side - AIS

Both are the same. TIS is a summary and AIS is the detailed statement. You can download both
When u download u get a pdf statement (There is json option also, but let's stick to PDF now)

PDF will be password protected
