Form 15G and 15H? – If your overall income is not taxable, what would you do to ensure that your bank may not withhold TDS on interest? When the interest income exceeds Rs.40,000 per year, banks are required to subtract TDS. This cap is calculated by adding deposits retained in all of the bank’s subsidiaries. If your net income is less than the taxable cap, you may recommend that the bank not subtract any TDS by submitting Form 15G and 15H.
Forms 15G and 15H are self-declaration documents that a person needs to submit to their bank to insist that TDS on interest income not be deducted because their earnings fall below the basic exemption cap. It is necessary to have the PAN in order to do so. You can apply these application forms via the bank’s site in some cases.
Who can submit form 15G and 15H?
Form 15H is for elderly people who are 60 years and older, and Form 15G is for everyone else.
