TRACES means TDS Reconciliation Analysis and Correction Enabling System. It is the online portal for administration and implementation of TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) and TCS (Tax Collected at Source). A Deductor can make corrections for TDS Return filed FY 2007-08 onwards. For corrections in PAN master, personal information, deductee details and challan details, there is no need to request for Conso file. Deductor can make a correction using the service ‘Request for Correction’ on TRACES. In the case of a paper return, you cannot opt for online correction.
