Q.1 What is tax deducted at source?

Page Contents

​Ans: For quick and efficient collection of taxes, the Income-tax Law has incorporated a system of deduction of tax at the point of generation of income. This system is called as “Tax Deducted at Source”, commonly known as TDS. Under this system tax is deducted at the origin of the income. Tax is deducted by the payer and is remitted to the Government by the payer on behalf of the payee.

The provisions of deduction of tax at source are applicable to several payments such as salary, interest, commission, brokerage, professional fees, royalty, contract payments, etc. In respect of payments to which the TDS provisions apply, the payer has to deduct tax at source on the payments made by him and he has to deposit the tax deducted by him to the credit of the Government.

Q.2 What are the payments covered under the TDS mechanism and the rates for deduction of tax at source?

Ans: ​​​​​​​Tax is deductible at source at the rates given in table (infra). If PAN of the deductee is not intimated to the deductor, tax will be deducted at source by virtue of section ​206AA either at the rate given in the table or at the rate or rates in force or at the rate of 20 per cent, whichever is higher. Further, under section 94A(5), if payment or credit is made or given to a deductee who is located in a notified jurisdictional area, tax is deductible at the rate given in the table or at the rate of 30 per cent, whichever is higher.

Form No. 15G is for the individual or a person (other than company or firm) and Form No. 15H is for the senior citizens.

Q.5 What are the consequences a deductor would face if he fails to deduct TDS or after deducting the same fails to deposit it to the Government’s account?

​​​​​​Ans: A deductor would face the following consequences if he fails to deduct TDS or after deducting the same fails to deposit it to the credit of Central Government’s account:-

a)  Disallowance of expenditure

As per section 40(a)(i) of the Income-tax Act, any sum (other than salary) payable outside India or to a non-resident, which is chargeable to tax in India in the hands of the recipient, shall not be allowed to be deducted if it is paid without deduction of tax at source or if tax is deducted but is not deposited with the Central Government till the due date of filing of return.

However, if tax is deducted or deposited in subsequent year, as the case may be, the expenditure shall be allowed as deduction in that year.

Similarly, as per section 40(a)(ia), any sum payable to a resident, which is subject to deduction of tax at source, would attract 30% disallowance if it is paid without deduction of tax at source or if tax is deducted but is not deposited with the Central Government till the due date of filing of return.

However, where in respect of any such sum, tax is deducted or deposited in subsequent year, as the case may be, the expenditure so disallowed shall be allowed as deduction in that year.

As per Section 58(1A) (as amended with effect from the assessment year 2018-19), the provisions of section 40(a)(ia) and 40(a)(iia) shall also apply in computing the income chargeable under the head “Income from other sources”.

b) Levy of interest

As per section 201 of the Income-tax Act, if a deductor fails to deduct tax at source or after the deducting the same fails to deposit it to the Government’s account then he shall be deemed to be an assessee-in-default and liable to pay simple interest as follows:-

(i) at one per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deductible to the date on which such tax is deducted; and

(ii) at one and one-half per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deducted to the date on which such tax is actually paid.​

Q.6 Under what circumstances a deductor would not be deemed as an assessee-in-default even after he fails to deduct TDS or after deducting the same fails to deposit it to the Government’s account?

Ans: ​​​​​​A deductor who fails to deduct the whole or any part of the tax on the sum paid to a resident or on the sum credited to the account of a resident shall not be deemed to be an assessee-in-default in respect of such tax if such resident—

(i) has furnished his return of income under section 139​;

(ii) has taken into account such sum for computing income in such return of income; and

(iii) has paid the tax due on the income declared by him in such return of income, and the deductor furnishes a certificate to this effect in Form No. 26A from a chartered accountant.

Q.7 However, w.e.f. 01-09-2019, sum paid to non-resident will be covered by above provisions.

Ans: ​​In such a case, the payee can claim the refund of entire/excess amount of TDS (as the case may be) by filing the return of income.​​

Q.8 If the payer does not deduct tax at source, will the payee face any adverse consequences by means of action taken by the Income-tax Department?

Ans: ​It is the duty and responsibility of the payer to deduct tax at source. If the payer fails to deduct tax at source, then the payee will not have to face any adverse consequences. However, in such a case, the payee will have to discharge his tax liability. Thus, failure of the payer to deduct tax at source will not relieve the payee from payment of tax on his income. ​

Q.9 What are the duties of the person deducting tax at source?

Ans: ​Following are the basic duties of the person who is liable to deduct tax at source.

  • He shall obtain Tax Deduction Account Number and quote the same in all the documents pertaining to TDS.
  • He shall deduct the tax at source at the applicable rate.
  • He shall pay the tax deducted by him at source to the credit of the Government (by the due date specified in this regard*).
  • He shall file the periodic TDS statements, i.e., TDS return (by the due date specified in this regard*).
  • He shall issue the TDS certificate to the payee in respect of tax deducted by him (by the due date specified in this regard*).

*Refer tax calendar for the due dates.

Q.10 How can I know the quantum of tax deducted from my income by the payer?

​​Ans: To know the quantum of the tax deducted by the payer, you can ask the payer to furnish you a TDS certificate in respect of tax deducted by him. You can also check Form 26AS​ from your e-filing account at https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in

You can also use the “View Your Tax Credit” facility available at www.incometaxindia.gov.in

Q.11 What to do if the TDS credit is not reflected in Form 26AS?

​​​Ans: Non-reflection of TDS credit in Form 26AS can be due to several reasons like non-filing of TDS statement by the payer, quoting incorrect PAN of the deductee in the TDS statement filed by the payer. Thus, in case of non-reflection of TDS credit in Form 26AS, the payee has to contact the payer for ascertaining the correct reasons for non-reflection of the TDS credit in Form 26AS.​

Q.12 At what rate the payer will deduct tax if I do not furnish my Permanent Account Number to him?

​​​​​Ans: As per section 206AA​, if you do not furnish your Permanent Account Number to the payer (i.e., deductor), then the deductor shall deduct tax at the higher of the following rates :

  • At the rate specified in the relevant provision of the Act.
  • At the rate or rates in force, i.e., the rate prescribed in the Finance Act.
  • At the rate of 20%.​

Q.13 However, the provisions of section 206AA shall not apply in the following cases:-

Ans: 1. In respect of payment of interest on long-term bonds to a non-resident under section 194LC.

2. Where deductee being a non-resident or a foreign company, shall in respect of payments in the nature of interest, royalty, fees for technical services and payments on transfer of any capital asset, furnish the following details and documents to the deductor, namely:—

i. name, e-mail id, contact number;

ii. address in the country or specified territory outside India of which the deductee is a resident;

iii. a certificate of his being resident in any country or specified territory outside India from the Government of that country or specified territory if the law of that country or specified territory provides for issuance of such certificate;

iv. Tax Identification Number of the deductee in the country or specified territory of his residence and in case no such number is available, then a unique number on the basis of which the deductee is identified by the Government of that country or the specified territory of which he claims to be a resident.

Q.14 I do not have PAN. Can I furnish Form 15G/15H for non-deduction of TDS from interest?

Ans: ​​​As per section 206AA​​, a declaration in Form No. 15G or Form No. 15H is not a valid declaration, if it does not contain PAN of the person making the declaration. If the declaration is without the PAN, then tax is to be deducted at higher of following rates :

  • At the rate specified in the re​levant provision of the Act.
  • At the rate or rates in force, i.e., the rate prescribed in the Finance Act.
  • At the rate of 20%.​

Q.15 Would I face any adverse consequences if instead of depositing TDS in the government’s account I use it for my personal needs?

​​​Ans: Yes, failure to remit tax deducted by me in the government’s account within stipulated time-limit would attract interest, penalty and rigorous imprisonment of upto seven years.

Q.16 I have not received TDS certificate from the deductor. Can I claim TDS in my return of income?

Ans: ​​​Yes, the tax credit in your case will be reflected in your Form 26AS and, hence, you can check Form 26AS and claim the credit of the tax accordingly. However, the claim of TDS to be made in your return of income should be strictly as per the TDS credit being reflected in Form 26AS. If there is any discrepancy in the tax actually deducted and the tax credit being reflected in Form 26AS then you should intimate the same to the deductor and should reconcile the difference. The credit granted by the Income-tax Department will be as per Form 26AS. ​

Q.17 If I buy any land/building then is there any requirement to deduct tax from the sale proceeds to be paid by me to the seller?

​​​​​Ans: Yes, Finance Act, 2013 has introduced section 194-IA which provides for deduction of tax at source in case of payment of sale consideration of immovable property (other than rural agricultural land) to a resident. S​ection 194-IA is not applicable if the seller is a non-resident. Tax is to be deducted @ 1%. No tax is to be deducted if the consideration is below Rs. 50,00,000. If the sale consideration exceeds Rs. 50,00,000, then tax is to be deducted on the entire amount and not only on the amount exceeding Rs. 50,00,000.

If the seller is a non-resident then tax is be deducted under section 195 and not under section 194-IA. Thus, in case of purchase of property from non-resident TDS provisions of section 195​ will apply and not of section 194-IA

Q.18 What is the difference between PAN and TAN?

Ans: ​​​​​P​AN stands for Permanent Account Number and TAN stands for Tax Deduction Account Number. TAN is to be obtained by the person responsible to deduct tax, i.e., the deductor. In all the documents relating to TDS and all the correspondence with the Income-tax Department relating to TDS one has to quote his TAN.

PAN cannot be used for TAN, hence, the deductor has to obtain TAN, even if he holds PAN.

However, in case of TDS on purchase of land and building (as per section 194-​IA) as discussed in previous FAQ, the deductor is not required to obtain TAN and can use PAN for remitting the TDS.​

Further in case of TDS on rent (as per section 194-IB) and TDS on payment of certain sums by Individuals of HUFs (as per section 194M), the deductor can use PAN instead of TAN for remiiting TDS

Q.20 What is the amount of TDS if property belongs to NRI?

Ans: ​​​Yes, as per the rates prescribed u/s 195. TDS is to be deducted on capital gain income. In case you have any doubt regarding the amount on which TDS is to be made, you may file an application with the officer handling non-resident taxation who will pass an order determining the TDS to be made. Alternatively, if the recipient feels that the TDS is more he may file an application with his Assessing Officer for non-deduction.

Q.21 Whether limit of Rs. 50,000 per month under section 194-IB is applicable to each of the co-owners separately in case rent is paid individually to co-owners?

​Ans: As per the section 194IB, an individual or HUF whose books of account are not liable for audit u/s 44AB, paying rent to a resident exceeding Rs. 50,000 per month or part of the month for land or building, liable to deduct tax @ 5% at the time of credit of rent, for the last month of the previous year or last month of the tenancy in case property is vacated during the year, as the case may be, to the account of the payee or at the time of payment thereof in cash or by cheque or draft or any other mode, whichever is earlier.

Therefore, limit of Rs. 50,000 is applicable for each co-owner separately, if rent is paid to co-owners of the property.

For Example: Mr. A is making payment of rent of Rs. 1,00,000 per month to Mr. B &Mr. C who are co-owners of the property, where in rent paid to Mr. B is Rs. 70,000 and to Mr. C is Rs. 30,000 ; A is liable to deduct tax @ 5% under section 194IB on rent paid to Mr. B as the amount of rent paid exceeds Rs. 50,000 and is not required to deduct tax on rent paid to Mr. C as the amount of rent paid does not exceed Rs. 50,000.

    Hello,
    I would like to know that can I just the excess interest paid u/s 201(1A). With other deduction.
    ie. Suppose I’m liable to pay Interest u/s 201(1A) is Rs. 1,000/-. But I have made the payment of Rs. 3,000/- (instead of Rs. 1,000/-)
    And now I’m liable to pay TDS on 194C – amounting to Rs. 2,000/- (TDS amount) . So now can adjust the excess interest paid of Rs.2,000/- with this?

  2. anil anand says:

    Looking for your advise .
    As part of the agreement for joint development. The builder paid us some consideration by cheque to each one of us in February.
    He now realized that he has to pay 10 percent to deductions as per section 194 IC .
    THE PAYMENT is as per agreement but no transfer of capital (property) has taken place. So how do we reflect this in our return. do we have to reflect the payment since builder will pay the 10 percent . If we do reflect then we pay tax at 33% which may not be recovered as LTCG Being nil later on.
    So what is the option for us as far as filing this years tax return.Is there a clause that we reflect but do not pay any more tax
    Shall look forward to your response.

    Can i have clarification in a case where TDS is remitted and is appearing in form 26AS. But the payment relating to TDS is not received during that year. What will be the impact on IT return where the income does not match with the turnover shown in form 26AS. These cases are quite common in PSU’s or Govt departments where expenditure has to be booked before it is actually incurred.

  12. GANDHI MOHAN BHARATI says:

    TDS has become so complicated that for failure of Deductors in paying to Government or non submission of proper Returns or misquoting PAN by them, individuals are put to a lot of difficulty.
    Why can’t the Government introduce a Form 15J so that individuals themselves undertake to do the TDS and any failure to deduct and pay as an Advance Tax within a month is penalisable.?

    QUERRY – If TDS deducted in Aug 2015 and deposited in Jan 2016 but the payments given by Payer for this in parts between May 2016 to Oct 2016 (Next financial year).
    So AS 26 of AY 16-17 will show this TDS deposited and the payment received has to be Taxed in AY 17-18. The AS26 for AY17-18 will not show this TDS.
    Then how credit of this deducted TDS can be taken?
    In ITR I put deduction year 2015 but Credit not given and showed mismatch.
    How to correct the situation ??

    Total income from salary is 806105 from which PF of 33312 and profession tax of 2700 has been deducted. How much will be my income tax

  23. GANDHI MOHAN BHARATI says:

    TDS by Banks and reconciling the same with Form26AS has become a pain in the neck. Due to carelessness of the Deductorsa the the Assessee has to suffer. As per the present position of the Income Tax Act it is the Assessee who is to to run behind the deductor.
    Look at what Vijay Mallaya did.
    Why does not the Income Tax department introduce a Form like 15G or 15H wherein the Assessee himself undertakes to deduct TDS and pay as Advance Tax and give it to the Deductor. ( say call it Form 15J). Default by assessee may attract the same penalties as to the oriinal Deductor.
    The responsibility in any case is on the Assessee; whether Deductor collects, fails to pay to Government, makes mistakes in PAN or does not file the TDS Return or makes mistakes in the amount of TDS.
    It has been my frustration and exasperation with the Banks every Quarter for the past decade.
    Will the Department consider this or be happy with people like Vijay Mallaya who collected and not remitted and harassing the employees to pay again and honest poor citizens at the mercy of careless Bank emloyees whose mistakes lead to all the problems of assessees and thereby Government gets extra revenue.

  24. Renuka says:

    Hi,
    I have withdrawn EPF from last employer. Amount is credited after deduction of TDS. I have received Form 16A for the same and it is reflected in Form 26AS. Now, my query is :
    -While filing income tax return for the FY 2015-16 should I mention PF amount in my taxable income (if yes; where)?
    -Because of this my slab rate has been changed and there is outstanding tax payable.
    -Both last and current employer has already been deducted TDS.

    Please guide!
    Thanks

  25. Pune Office says:

    Sir,
    Where the Party Is Providing two type of services such as Labour and Vehicle Hiring Services. Does We have to deduct TDS under Both The heads i.e(194C and 194ia) if limit is crossed under only 194ia.

  26. Nishant says:

    Last financial year I checked that none of my payslips have the income tax deduction mentioned in it. I noticed this when I saw my Form 16s [I changed my company last October, hence have two Form 16s]. Even the payslips from my current company did not have the income tax deduction for the months left in the previous financial year. The deduction started from April, 2016, i.e. the starting for the current finacial year. Because of this I have to pay the entire tax now when I am filing my return.
    My question is why did this happen that both the companies did not deduct the monthly income tax from my salary? Did I miss anything on my part?
    I have completed the e-filing on the Income Tax website but have not verified it. Do I have to pay the pending tax and then do the e-filing again and then submit the return?
    Or should I pay the tax and then verify the return, keeping the e-filing same?

    1. Sasthamani Iyer says:

      Dear Nishant U have to pay the pending tax, do the e filing again ( Note to include Chalan No etc) & then submit the return. I did so last year.

    I need to know, when is a proprietorship liable to pay TDS? Is there any limit for the payment of the same like Tax audit exemption limits are there

    1. Kingshuk Das says:

      A Proprietor can deduct TDS or TDS can be deducted from him whenever and wherever TDS is applicable. For example if she is getting rent above 15000/- per month she should deduct TDS @ 10% preferably after application and allotment of TAN number. When she is a deductee i.e., when TDS is being deducted from her she should insist on getting TDS certificate and file her IT Return based on that certificate/s.

  28. Rakesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    I am an NRE, I had opened Fixed deposit of 29 Lacs in Central Bank for 1 year in Sept 2010 with option of automatic renewal with interest. From Sept 2011 to August 2014 every year bank renewed my fixed with accumulated interest. In the month of may 2014, I was in need of funds so I prematurely withdrawn my FD. Bank has paid me interest up to September 2013. They have not paid any interest for the period Oct 2013 to May 2014.

    They explained me that no interest on NRE Premature withdrawal.

    Please let me know if bank is Right.

    Though My bank ( SBH) used to deduct TDS on interest generated on 1000 days FD’s of mine ( a Senior citizen)for 2 years , and I used to show the same in my ITR ,as per 26 AS ,everything was running smooth,then ,in the third year , in the month of July , as TDS was neither deducted by SBH -nor shown in 26 AS , hence after inquiry, SBH asked me to PAY amount equivalent to TDS to them , and then SBH PAID to IT authorities as TDS on interest, on my behalf .

    after maturity of those FD’s,it was seen that , i received CONTRACTUAL MATURITY AMOUNT (after deducting TDS), but i was not reimbursed-refunded-credited with amount equivalent to TDS (of the third year)that was CREDITED by me to SBH and then that bank has CREDITED TO IT authorities.
    when it was brought to SBH , they agreed to reimburse-refund that amount with 18% comp.interest

    Now bank is neither refunding that amount …what to Do…..

    I am a business consultant to a group of Companies numbering six. Group had undertaken supply of foodgrains and other items to Government Department through a nominated Govt. agency during the A.Y. 2009-10; 2010-11 and 2011-12 under tie-up arrangement on back to back basis. The Department treated Govt Agency as Contractor (though not supposed to be) and deducted TDS under 194-C and issued Form 16-A in lieu of that. The TDS amount, so deducted , was subtracted from our payments by the Agency. But the Govt Agency is not releasing the TDS amount even after 3 years, saying that its Income Assessment has not been completed and also few entries (less than Rs .10 lakhs) are to be converted from “P” to “F” in 26AS. Our plea to release the amount through various correspondences have gone to the deaf years of the Agency. The claim amount runs in few crores of rupees.
    My question is as to the reasons given by the Agency is justified ? How long the Agency can dilly-dally the matter and the limitations? Whether Our group is entitled to get the refund with interest? Please clarify.

  76. Pankaj says:

    Sir,

    I was working with firm in year 2010-2012 and in FY 2010-2011 Employer deducted TDS of Rs. 2.47 L and never deposited to IT department. At the year end, Employer provided Form 16 in which it is stated that “Employer has deducted TDS but yet not deposited the same and Employer will deposit the same at earliest.” I have filed ITR with same understanding attaching that Form 16. Then after in 2012-13 I got notice from IT department of outstanding of Sum of Rs. 2.47 L. I replied to this note is very polite and positive manner confirming all possible details and also providing some reference court cases confirming that it is Employer’s responsibility to deposit TDS deducted. But IT department is possibly not accepting my humble request and they have sent me another notice asking for interest component as well. To which I have replied in formal commercial language with help of my C.A. and awaiting revert from IT Department. Now I request you to guide how to proceed with this case as explained above as IT department has started deducting /not paying my refund and adjusting the same against so claimed outstanding…..Your valuable inputs will be appreciated. Please let me understanding in case any additional details are sought from my end to facilitate your quick and valuable response.

      Madam,

      TDS Rate = 1% (if the payee is individual or HUF having valid PAN)
      TDS Rate = 2% (if the payee is not an individual or HUF)

      TDS @ 20% to be deducted if the payee is not having PAN or not willing to share PAN (in case of resident).

      Hope this information serves the purpose. For more information on TDS, you may email happyanandch@yahoo.co.in.

    4. Mention the case law of – Jaslok Hospital & Research … vs Department Of Income Tax on 7 November, 2012 and Mls Eli Lilly & Co. (India)(P) Ltd., 312 ITR 225 (SC).
    5. Also, there is a case law (unable to recall)that says – Penalty can not be imposed on deductor for failing to deduct TDS, if the deductee has discharged his tax liabilities well.

    This is not an expert opinion.

  79. Anand says:

    Sri Vashisth,

    Sir,

    TDS provisions are applicable on the basis that vendor account being credited or payment made whichever is earlier. It can also differ in case to case scenario.

  80. Anand says:

    Sri Vashisth,

    Sir,

    TDS on service Tax portion of a bill is not to be made as per circular no. 01/2014 of CBDT. Also, do not get confused with the words agreement/contract mentioned in it. It is applicable to all bills/invoices.

    Anand Prakash Choudhary

  81. Anand says:

    Sri Joginder Sud,

    Sir,

    For your information: the deductors are made liable for this. Once you file your ITR and if there is mismatch between the TDS claimed and TDS credit in your TRACES account, then the Assessing Officer (A.O.) will first issue a demand notice of the differential amount of TDS and interest. Then, you are supposed to present the TDS certificate to the AO clearing your position of TDS mismatch. The AO will then issue notice to the deductor (via respective TDS jurisdictional officer)for difference in the TDS certificate provided to you and TDS statement filed by them. The deductor will either explain the reasons or will file a correction statement. This solves the problem.

    Anand Prakash Choudhary

  82. Vashishth says:

      Sri P K Chopra,

      Sir,

      As per my understanding, you are not covered with the provisions of section 192, rather you are covered under section 194J. You can check the TDS statement (form 26AS) that under which section TDS is being made.

  84. joginder sud says:

    So much has been written on TDS problems faced by tax payers. No body has tackled the issue as to what can tax payer do if the deductor fails to file correction for TDS mismatch on form 26As.There is need to hold deductor responsible if he fails to correct the mismatch.

    Sri G.K.Sharma:

    Sir,

    The TDS will be deducted from the payment to be made to the Bank if it exceeds Rs. 50,00,000/-. The irony is that, the Bank is not entitled to claim this TDS credit in the Annual Income Tax Return.

    Thanks,
    Anand Prakash Choudhary

  88. Anand says:

    Sir, your answer to the FAQ – Whether any person is exempted from TDS deduction? Is there any such relaxation? If so what is the procedure that should be followed? seems not to be correct. The assessing Officer is required to issue a certificate for lower deduction of tax or nil deduction of tax u/s 197(1) only from ITD system (internal software of Income Tax Department) and not on the palin paper.

    Thanks,

    I want clarification regarding TDS on interest income. Interest income upto 10000 is exempt from tax, but if interest income is (say) 11000 then 10% TDS will be deducted from (11000-10000=1000) or from entire 11000?

  105. S.Ramakrishnan says:

    TDS on the amount you are paying; say the amount you have to pay by cheque but subject to deduction of TDS, so you are duducting the TDS and paying the net amount/balance amount. For the TDS deducted you are the Treasurer and bound to remit the amount to the I.Tax Authorities and issue the Tax Deduction Certificate to the Payee.

    This is just a Source of Deduction from payment, and the payee will get the credit for the Income Tax Deducted at Source while computing his income for Income Tax purposes.

    Hello Sir,

    My wife would like to start investment in stock market. Initial Money will be borrowed on interest [from

    local private money lender].

    I want to know how tax will be calculated on profit of Stock Trading.

    Can she adjust the interest charges of borrowed money with share profit.

    Is it required that she has to maintain any document on Borrowed money Interest.

    if income does not cross 1.6 L/A then Income tax Return filling is required.

    It would be better if you provide an illustation on this.

    Thanks a lot in advance
