How to Download TDS Certificate in Form 16B?

Advocate C P Chugh

Government has made it mandatory w.e.f 01.06.2013 on buyer of property to deduct TDS @ 1% on payment made after 01.06.2013 if Purchase Consideration of the Property exceeds Rs. 50 Lakh.   Deductor can pay such TDS by any of the following mode :-

  • Either make the payment online (through e-tax payment option) immediately;
  • Or make the payment subsequently through e-tax payment option (net-banking account) or by visiting any of the authorized Bank branches. However, such bank branches will make e-payment without digitization of any challan. The bank will get the challan details from the online form filled on www.tin-nsdl.com

Once the Payment is made now the dedcuctor / Buyer is required to issue TDS certificate in form 16B to the seller of the Property. Now the question is how to prepare or from where deductor can get such certificate for the purpose of issue to the seller? Answer is deductor can download such certificate from Traces website and issue to the seller.

    Good morning sir,
    To deduct TDS TAN No. is compulsory.If an individual for eg., salaried person who earns lakhs of money, took an immovable property in 2007 for 10 lakhs and it is now raised to 60lakhs and he is interested to sale that property. e.g., he sells he immediately has to deduct TDS but how he can deduct TDS without having TAN No. and the word property in above para refers whether movable or immovable or both.

    In case there are 3 sellers in the agreement, then we will have to provide form 16B to all 3 sellers or only to the 1st name in the agreement? If we have to provide three 16B then we have to fill up three 26QB?
