While submitting my income tax proofs in my company website, by mistake i added my previous company total taxable income to the field "Previous company Earnings" which was not required as the previous company had already deducted the tax amount for the period i was with them. This mistake increased my total taxable income for the financial year 2016-2017 by over Rs 5 lakhs.
The total income tax on me for the year 2016-2017 thus became a whopping more than Rs 1 lakh out of which the present company has already deducted Rs 38000 from my january salary. I do have the payslips of my previous company as proof that they had already deducted tax from me for the period i was with them from March 2016 to the date of joining my present company.
Is there any way i could correct this error and get back the surplus deduction which infact i don't have to pay?
