The Income-Tax Act casts responsibility on the employer for tax deduction at source (TDS) on Salary at the time of payment of salary to employees whose salary income is above the maximum amount not chargeable to tax. The employer is required to deduct TDS on salary at the average  rate of income-tax and deposit the same with the government within the prescribed time. The employer is also required to file withholding tax returns and issue TDS certificate to the employee.

Various penalties are levied on the employer in case of default, making the entire procedure equally painful for your employer.

So, you must have started realising that the grass on the other side is not as green as you thought. Though, from the above it is understood that TDS is solely the obligation of the employer but, if as an employee you are aware that there is a TDS default, then you may be held responsible too. If your total income exceeds the maximum amount not chargeable to tax and no TDS is being deducted by the employer, then you are under an obligation to pay tax through the advance tax route.TDS on Salary –Key Points every employee should know

You should estimate your total income for the year that could comprise of salary, house property, interest income etc. Relevant deductions applicable to each source of income, on account of eligible investments, interest on housing loans, etc, can be considered to calculate the taxable income. On this amount, you should calculate the tax payable as per the applicable tax rates.

Having arrived at the gross tax liability, reduce the amount of TDS suffered/ likely to be suffered on the above income. If the balance tax payable exceeds Rs 10,000, you will be required to comply with the advance tax provisions. The entire amount becomes payable as advance tax in four installments on or before June 15th, September 15th, December 15th and March 15th, during the financial year.In case you miss the advance tax installments, taxes can also be deposited by way of self-assessment tax post April 1 (after the end of financial year). In case the employer has defaulted in TDS, it would be your responsibility to deposit taxes by way of advance tax/ self-assessment tax as ultimately, taxes are to be deposited on your income.

Failure to deposit taxes could lead to concealment of income on your part, resulting in penalty to be paid by you equivalent to 100-300% of the tax amount not deposited.Further, there are interest implications as well , but there are judicial precedents which indicate that if taxes were required to be deposited by way of TDS and have not been done, the recipient of income is not required to pay interest.

Going forward, before you plan your month-end celebrations, just glance through your pay stub. Instead of creating a hue and cry over the tax figure, be thankful to your employer for taking care of your taxes and saving you from a lot of hassles.

  6. Bharathi says:

    My daughter worked with kingfisher Airlines, they deducted TDS, but didn’t deposited tax to income tax Department, didn’t issue TDS certificate, on salary slip it shows tax deducted, now income tax Department sent notice to pay the tax again. The tax was collected by kingfisher airline because income tax Department authoriised kingfisher Airlines to collect and asked them to deposit, it is the income tax Departments responseibilty to collect money from kingfisher Airlines because they only authorised to deduct TDS , why they didn’t take bank guaranty when allowing someone to collect money on behalf of income tax Department . Once we paid TDS and because of the inability to collect money from kingfisher Airlines when it was existing, when it was functioning, is it correct to to pay TDS amount again with interest which was already paid. If income tax Department is failed to collect TDS from his authorised person it is the fault of income tax Department and not the worker who paid TDS to the income tax Department authorised person. It’s not at all correct to penalise a common man for mistake of the department, please help me the correct method not to pay again the TDS amount with interest, thanks

    That the employee has deposited advance tax and self assessement tax therefore the employer has deducted less tds on his salary but there is no column in 24Q for adjustment of advance tax and self assessement tax. the TRACES has raised the demand without considering the self assessement and advance tax. how this matter can be solved, because income tax officer tds has no option to correct the same online.
    Please give your valuable suggestion.

    I am a govt.employee. My employer does not give salary certificate or deducting tds. the salary goes directly to the bank. Unless I get the heads of account on which tax is payable or exempted I am in the dark to pay tax. My employer has moe than 1500 employees on rolls. Kindly advise action for paying tax as well as if any action is possible against employer for not giving salary certificate/slip every month and not deducting tds. The excuse given is shortage of staff to handle the work. Employer is a Govt. of Maharastra establishment. Thanks

    Kya ek female government employee income tax ma rented house ki rebate lay sakti hai, Agar rent agreement us ke husband ke naam bana hua ho or us ka husband us ki rebate na lay raha ho.

    More over : Kya ek female government employee apne husband ki insurance policy pay karne ke bad income tax mai rebate lay sakti hai or insurance installment cash ma pay ki gayi ho or us ka husband us ki rebate na lay.


    Friend, I am a Government employee. During Sep 2009 I received a lump sum amount as arrears due to 6th pay commission. This amount was for Jan 2006 to Aug 2008.The amount was split into the arrears for the respective year and claimed rebate against section 89(1) for an amount of Rs.11592/= This amount claimed was reflected in the Form 16 provided by the employer for AY 2010-2011. However on re calculation it is seen that the actual rebate amount claimed should have been Rs. 10562.There is a short fall of Rs.1030 which is due to Income tax. My income is only from salary and it is reflected in the form 16. Now how much with penalty and interest i have to pay

    In case the employee has furnished FALSE DECLARATION then I Tax Deptt will trouble employee for recovery of short deductions, penalties and interest thereupon. And further it could be case of section 271 for doing a wrong (false declaration) intentionally. Please note that it makes a big difference between ‘wrong calculation of tax’ and making a wrong calculation intentionally by self or by furnishing false declaration.

    @ Rohit,

    Please calculate your net taxable income and then tax liability. Pay this tax liability yourself by adjusting any amount deducted by employer as TDS.

    @ Mr Subhash Bhatt

    Your employer is right and allow them to deduct Tax from April.

    @Mr Mukesh Patel,

    No you cannot take any action against employer. It is the Income Tax Deptt who will question as why the tax was not collected correctly. Further it depends upon the tax amount. If the tax amount is less than 5000 then feel easy.

  78. ravi says:

    Employer was not deducting TDS from Salary. Employee paid advance tax in challans at a bank in Sept.,December and March . proof of advance tax payment and proof of savings eligible for 80C deduction were given to employer for getting Form 16. The employers charted accountant then says the employers has to deduct TDS and goes ahead and deposits TDS in June along with penal interest which was then deducted from salary of employee along with the TDS. Is the employer right in making the employee pay th penal interest when he has paid advance tax and has a net refund due.



  80. Subhash Bhatt says:

    Dear Sir,

    My salary is taxable & I want to deduct the TDS from Dec onwards but my company is deducting TDS from April i.e. taxable amt divide by 12 months. & they are telling that it is a new rule which we have to follow.

    Please advice.

  81. ashok patel says:

    When you get stuck up all provisions of Law comes in action and assesse are punishable for payment of penalty and interest, Now if any employer does not deduct TDS from salary then the expenses claimed for salary of such person will be disallowed and added to income of that assessment year and when TDS is paid in the later year then the said expenses will be allowed in that later year of payment of TDS, that’s what Law says,
    It was bad at law for not deduction of TDS from Salary, any employer in India has to be cautious by asking their employ for details of employees tax saving investments,and explain each employee for the taxation part during the year from April onwards,The accounts and tax department or Chartered Accountant of the company has to take care of such matters,and comply with all the rules and regulations of Law requirements,
    I hope you understand the pains of payments

Thereafter she fail to furnish the said form from here arrears and tax amounting to Rs. 15600/- were deducted less from her salary which later on she deposited with penalty through bank challan after 31st March of that year. Now Income tax department issued show cause notice regarding less payment. They are not convinced with the fact that the tax was deposited by the employee herself as it was not shown in TAN of the concern as she deposited individually. can it be possible to take that amount under TAN? OR what should I do to reply the department?

  88. Ritesh Jain says:

    @ Vijay: If employer fails to deduct the TDS than he will liable for penalty provisions.
    & IT Dept. will not issue a demand notice to the employer instead will be charged penalty.

    @ Amit: If employer deducted and not deposited than you have not to be worry till you have TDS certificate from the employer.

    @ Amit: In my openion that why govt. has come with this provision because now a days so many peoples are not disclosing there other income to there employers, resulting in lower deduction of TDS on the employer end.
    So the govt. wants that employee if wants to conceal any income till the end of the year than he is not allowed to do that as it has been mentioned there would be a penalty of 100-300% of the tax amount.
