Employer wrongly mentioned deduction for Section 80U in Form 16

I was just about to file returns when I noticed that deductions in Form 16 Annexure has been mentioned under Section 80U (Disability of the individual himself) which should actually be mentioned in Section 80DD – Deduction for Medical Disability of a dependent family member.

You may ask your employer for revision of such return.
Or else, file the correct return showing deduction under 80DD.
Be prepared for further communication from the IT department for such mismatch. You may be required to reply for such mismatch with adequate proofs.

Hi,

Not an issue. You can mention it in the correct head in the return of income.

Ensure you have all the back-up documents with you.

Please feel free to call/ revert in case you need more clarity.

You take the correct deduction and also take a declaration from the employer that there was mistake on his part. This is just to safeguard in future.
