If payment to the parties (on which TDS has been deducted) has been made actually i.e. by cash, cheque, demand draft or any other acceptable mode, then ‘otherwise’ has to be mentioned in the specified field. But if payment has not been actually made and merely a provision has been made on the last date of the accounting year, then the option ‘Paid by Book Entry’ has to be selected.

21. By whom should the control chart Form 27A be signed?

Form 27A is the summary of the TDS/TCS statement. It has to be signed by the same person who is authorized to sign the TDS/TCS statement in paper format.

The details of missing PANs (to the extent it can be collected from the deductees) may be filed within seven days of the date of Provisional Receipt to TIN-FC. e-TDS/TCS return will be accepted even with missing PANs. However, if PAN of deductees is not given in the TDS return, tax deducted from payment made to him cannot be posted to the statement of TDS to be issued to him u/s 203AA.

23. Is the Challan Identification Number compulsory?

Yes. Challan Identification Number is necessary for all non-Government deductors.

24. Is PAN mandatory for deductors and employees/deductees?

If you have more than one office/branch you can file a consolidated e-TDS/TCS return for all offices/branches. In this case you should quote the same TAN. You can also file e-TDS/TCS returns office/branch-wise individually. In such cases you need to have separate TAN for every branch. In case you do not have separate TAN for each branch then you should apply for TAN for each of the branches filing separate e-TDS/TCS return.

26. Should I file copies of certificate for no deduction or concessional deduction of tax along with the e-TDS/TCS return?

In case of salary e-TDS/TCS return (Form No. 24), you have to file certificate for no deduction or concessional deduction of TDS alongwith

the e-TDS/TCS return. In case of non-salary (Form No. 26/27) you need not file certificates for no deduction or concessional deduction of TDS alongwith the e-TDS/TCS return. This is not required in case of any quarterly statements

27. How do I file my quarterly e-TDS/TCS return, if I don’t have PANs of all deductees?

You can file your e-TDS/TCS return for the deductees who have valid PANs and subsequently file correction return for remaining deductees whose PANs were not available with you while furnishing regular return.

28. How do I include deductees whose details were not provided earlier due to unavailability of PAN?

You are required to file a correction return in a prescribed file format available at www.tin-nsdl.com

29. What amount should be mentioned in the challan details in case a regular return is filed only for those deductees whose PAN is present and subsequently a correction is filed with the remaining deductees?

The amount deposited vide that particular challan should be mentioned in the original as well as correction return. Refer below example:

  • Suppose a challan payment of Rs.1,00,000/- has been made for non-salary TDS against 100 deductees each with TDS of Rs.1 ,000/-. Under the existing procedure the deductor will have to quote at least 85 PAN failing which his return will be rejected.
  • If there are only 50 deductees whose PAN is available and the deductor attempts to file a return with details of 100 deductees with PAN of only 50 deductees, the return will automatically be rejected at present.
  • However, if he files a return with challan amount of Rs. 1,00,000/-and with details of 50 deductees with PAN, with deductee total ofRs.50,000/-, the return will be accepted. It means the deductor can furnish the details relating to such deductees whose PANs are available.
  • The deductor can later file correction returns with other details of remaining deductees with the same challan details, i.e., the challan amount should be the amount deposited (in this case Rs. 1,00,000/-).
  • The return will be accepted so long as the TDS total of incremental deductees is less than or equal to the balance of Rs.50,000/-.

30. After I prepare my e-TDS/TCS return, is there any way I can check/ verify whether it conforms to the prescribed data structure (file format)?

Yes, after you have prepared your e-TDS/TCS return you can check/verify the same by using the File Validation Utility (FVU). This utility is freely down loadable from the NSDL-TIN website.

31. What is File Validation Utility (FVU)?

FVU is a program developed by NSDL, which is used to ascertain whether the e-TDS/TCS return file contains any format level error(s). When you pass e-TDS/TCS return through FVU, it generates an ‘error/response file’. If there are no errors in the e-TDS/TCS return file, error/response file will display the control totals. If there are errors, the error/response file will display the error location and error code along with the error code description. In case you find any error, you can rectify the error and pass the e-TDS/TCS return file again through the FVU till you get an error-free file.

32. What is the ‘Upload File’ in the new File Validation Utility?

Earlier the e-TDS/TCS return file after validating using File Validation Utility (FVU) had to be filed with TIN-FC. Now ‘Upload File’ that is generated by the FVU when the return is validated using the FVU has to be filed with TIN-FC. This ‘upload file’ is a file with the same filename as the ‘input file’ but with extension .fvu. Example ‘input file’ name is 27EQGov.txt, the upload file generated will be 27EQGov.fvu.

33. What are the platforms for execution of FVU?

For Annual Returns, FVU can be executed on any of the Windows platforms mentioned below: Win 95/Win 98/Win 2K Professional/Win 2K Server/Win NT 4.0 Server/Win XP Professional.

For Quarterly Returns, Java has to be installed to run FVU. Details are given in FVU section of NSDL-TIN website.

34. What are the Control Totals appearing in the Error/Response File generated by validating the text file through File Validation Utility (FVU) of NSDL?

The Control Totals in Error/Response File are generated only when a valid file is generated. Otherwise, the Error/Response File shows the nature of error. The control totals are as under:

  • Number of deductee/party records: In case of Form 24/24Q, it is equal to the number of employees for which TDS return is being prepared. In case of Form 26/27/26Q/27Q, it is equal to the total number of records of tax deduction. 10 payments to 1 party would mean 10 deductee records.
  • Amount Paid: This is the Total Amount of all payments made on which tax was deducted. In case of Form 24/24Q, it is equal to the Total Taxable Income of all the employees. In case of Form 26/27/26Q/27Q, this is equal to the total of all the amounts on which tax has been deducted at source.
  • Tax Deducted: This is the Total Amount of tax actually deducted at source for all payments.
  • Tax Deposited: This is the total of all the deposit challans. This is normally the same as Tax Deducted but at times may be different due to interest or other amount.

35. Are the control totals appearing in Form 27A same as that of Error/ Response File?

Yes, the control totals in Form 27A and in Error/Response File are same.

36. WHAT IF ANY OF THE CONTROL TOTALS MENTIONED IN FORM NO. 27A DO NOT MATCH WITH THAT IN E-TDS/TCS RETURN?

In such a case the e-TDS/TCS return will not be accepted by the TIN­FC. You should ensure that the control totals generated by FVU and that mentioned on Form No. 27A match. In case of any difficulties/queries, you should contact the TIN-FC or TIN Call Centre at NSDL.

37. Where can I file my TDS/TCS return?

You can file your TDS/TCS return at any of the TIN-FCs managed by NSDL. TIN-FCs are set-up at specified locations across the country. Details

On successful verification credit of tax deducted/collected by you is reflected in the annual tax statement (Form 26AS) of the deductees/transacting parties where PAN of deductee / transacting party is present.

In case of deficiencies in the accepted regular TDS/TCS statement such as incorrect challan details or PAN not provided or provided incorrectly, the tax credit will not reflect in the Form 26AS of the deductees in your statement.

To facilitate correct credit in Form 26AS of the deductees you are required to remove deficiencies, if any, in the accepted regular TDS/TCS statement by filing a correction statement.

72. What are the different types of corrections that I can make?

The following are the various types of corrections that you can make to an accepted regular TDS/TCS statement:

  • Update deductor details such as Name, Address of Deductor. This type of correction is known as C1
  • Update challan details such as challan serial no., BSR code, challan tender date, challan amounts etc. This type of correction is known as C2.
  • Update/delete /add deductee details. This type of correction is known as C3.
  • Add / delete salary detail records. This type of correction is known as C4.
  • Update PAN of the deductee or employee in deductee/salary details. This type of correction is known as C5.
  • Add a new challan and underlying deductees. This type of correction is known as C9.
  • Cancel accepted statement. This type of correction is known as Y. Regular TDS /TCS statement can be cancelled only if the TAN of the deductor is to be corrected. After the regular statement with incorrect TAN is cancelled a regular TDS / TCS statement with the correct TAN should be filed.

73. Can I update / add deductee and challan details in the same correction statement? Do I need to file separate correction statements for updating a PAN as well as adding a challan and its underlying deductees?

Yes. There is no need to file separate statements for different types of corrections. In case you need to update or add different deductees / challans in the same statement, it can be done in a single correction file.

Depending on the type of correction a single correction file may contain multiple correction statements. A correction file containing more than one correction statement is called “multiple batch correction statement”.

74. Can I file the correction e-TDS/TCS statement with any TIN-FC?

You can file the corrected e-TDS/TCS return at any TIN-FC.

75. Do I have to pay upload fee for filing correction e-TDS/TCS return?

Yes. Upload fee is payable for each and every e-TDS/TCS return accepted by the TIN-FC, irrespective of whether it is a correction e-TDS/TCS statement or an original e-TDS/TCS statement. Upload fees applicable for correction statement is as per table below:

No. of deductee records in e-TDS/TCS return Upload charges

Returns having upto 100 records Rs.30
Returns having 101 to 1000 records Rs.182
Returns having more than 1000 records Rs.606

76. Do I have to pay upload fee for filing correction e-TDS/TCS return?

Yes. Upload fees are applicable for cancellation (Y) statements. Charges would be as per regular statement being cancelled.

77. Will the TIN-FC give any acknowledgment/receipt after acceptance of corrected e-TDS/TCS return?

Yes, TIN-FC will issue a Provisional Receipt in case corrected e-TDS/TCS return file is valid and accepted by the TIN-FC. The Provisional Receipt issued by TIN-FC is deemed to be the proof of corrected e-TDS/TCS return filed by you.

78. What are the prerequisites for furnishing a correction TDS/TCS statement?

In case statement is accepted, you can further check the status of challans and deductee PANs in the statement.

80. What are the different statuses of a challan in the TDS/TCS statement?

The following are the various statuses of challans in a TDS/TCS statement:

  • Booked: Challan / transfer voucher detail in the statement matches with corresponding details received from banks / PAO.
  • Match Pending: Corresponding challan details not received from the bank.
  • Match Failed (Challan): TAN and/or amount relating to a challan in the statement do not match with the corresponding details received from banks.
  • Match Failed (Transfer Voucher): Amount relating to a transfer voucher does not match with corresponding details received from PAO.

81. What is the significance if the status of challan is ‘Booked’?

If the challan is in Booked status, credit of tax deducted will be reflected in the annual tax statement (Form 26AS) of all the underlying deductees with a valid PAN.

Correction in challan details is not allowed once a challan is booked. Correction can be made on underlying deductee records of a booked challan.

82. What should I do if the status of challan is Match pending?

A challan is in Match pending status as the CIN is not present in the payment information provided by the Bank. As a result the credit of tax deducted will not be reflected in the Form 26AS of corresponding deductees with valid PAN.

The possible cause could be due to error in quoting CIN details (Challan serial no., BSR code and challan tender date) either in the TDS statement or in the details provided by the Bank. Error in TDS statement can be rectified by filing a correction statement, where as error.

83. What should I do if the status of challan is in status ‘Match failed’?

A challan is in Match failed status as the TAN/challan amount in the statement does not match the details provided by the Bank. As a result the credit of tax deducted will not be reflected in Form 26AS of corresponding deductees with valid PAN.

The possible cause could be error in quoting challan amount. The same can be rectified by filing a correction statement.

84. How do I prepare the first correction on a regular TDS/TCS statement?

There are two fields for Provisional Receipt Number (PRN) / Token Number in a correction statement as under:

a. Original Provisional Receipt Number / Token Number – PRN of the regular statement should be mentioned in this field.

b. Previous Provisional Receipt Number / Token Number – PRN of the last accepted correction statement should be mentioned in this field. In case the value in this field is incorrectly mentioned, the statement will get rejected at TIN central system for the reason: “Either Previous Provisional Receipt No. provided is incorrect or combination of Original Provisional Receipt Number / Token Number and Previous Provisional Receipt Number / Token Number is not in sequence”

Example:

Single batch correction statement – Only one type of correction in the file

a. You have filed a regular statement having PRN / Token Number 010010200083255 and subsequently filed a single batch correction statement having PRN / Token Number 010010300074112. While preparing correction statement, you have to mention PRN / Token Number 010010200083255 in the field original PRN and the PRN / Token Number 010010300074112 in the field Previous PRN.

Multiple batch correction statement – different types of correction in a single file

b. You have filed a regular statement having PRN / Token Number 010010200083255 and subsequently filed a multi batch correction statement having three batches and corresponding PRNs / Token Numbers as 010010300074112, 010010300074123 and 010010300074134. While preparing the correction statement, you have to mention PRN / Token Number 010010200083255 in the field original PRN and check the status of all the three PRNs of correction statement.

• If all the three PRNs / Token Numbers are accepted at the TIN central system, you may mention any of the three PRNs / Token Numbers in the field previous PRN.

• If any of the three PRNs / Token Numbers is rejected, then you should mention the PRN / Token Number which has been accepted at the TIN central system in the field Previous PRN.

This is possible when the PAN in the any of the records being updated by you in the correction statement is invalid, i.e. PAN not present in PAN Master Database. In such a scenario, the said record gets rejected resulting in partial acceptance of the statement.

113. What could be the cause of rejection of TDS/TCS statement for the reason “Total Deposit amount of deductees is more than Challan amount actually deposited in bank”?

The total tax deposited amount as per challan should be greater than or equal to the total tax deposited amount as per deductee details, else a regular TDS/TCS statement will not get validated through FVU.

If you file a correction statement for adding deductee records under a particular challan, the total tax deposited as per challan in regular statement should be greater than or equal to the total tax deposited in deductee details as per regular as well as correction statement.

    Income tax was deducted from my salary and Form-16 was also issued to me stating the deduction of tax in Apr, May, June,2007. The tax was deposited with Govt. account . The Form-16 stated the E-filing reference no for 1st quarter for FY 2007-08. However, I got a demand from ITO stating short deduction of IT .Total tax liability as stated by ITO
    has been deducted from my salary as per form-16. I submitted the original Form-16 along with separate letters to ITO. However, It is still pending. Subsequently, I noticed that the ref. no given in form-16 for 1st qtr was under 26Q and not under 24Q. Return under 24Q for 1st Qtr of FY 2007-08 was not filed by my employer.

    If there is an error in ‘amount of payment’details during quarterly e- filing of TDS returns in form 24Q while ‘TDS deducted’ details are correct then is it necessary to correct the details and if it is so then can I correct the statement already corrected for other reason. eg. salary paid to employee as per books is Rs. 30000 and T.D.S deducted Rs. 2000 for the month of April as per books, however, while quarter filing of tds return the salary paid is mistakely entered as Rs. 29000 but T.D.s deducted entered is correct.

    What are the details that are required to be quoted in case any assessee is deducting tax at source of a non-resident. Since it might not be possible for us to quote PAN as they might not have those applicable in their home country.
