TDS also know as Tax deducted at source is income tax withheld from the money collected at the period of paying specified expenses like rent, commission, professional fees, wages, interest, etc., by individuals making such transactions.

Generally, the individual earning any type of income is responsible to pay taxes. However, the government, mostly with aid of the TDS, guarantees the income tax is withheld in advance from the payments received by you.

The beneficiary of the profits shall receive a net sum (after substantiating TDS). (after reducing TDS). The beneficiary will apply the gross sum to his wages and the sum of the TDS will be calculated towards his actual tax obligation. The receiver shall take the credit of the balance previously deducted and paid on his side.

When is TDS deducted and by who does it?

 Any individual who makes specified payments referred to in the Income Tax Act is mandated to deduct TDS at the point of preparing those very given payments. However no TDS must be subtracted if the person attempting to make the payment is an individual or a HUF for whom the books are really not needed to be audited.

Even though in the event of rent payments undertaken by individual and HUF above Rs 50,000 a month, TDS @ 5 per cent must be deducted even though the individual or HUF is not liable for a tax audit. Also, those persons and HUF who are eligible to subtract TDS @5 % will not need to request for TAN.

Your company subtracts TDS at the appropriate income tax limit. Banks subtract TDS by 10%. Or they can subtract up to 20% if they don’t really have the PAN detail. For the most part, the TDS payment rates are laid out in the Income Tax Act as well as the TDS is withheld by the payer on the basis of such prescribed rates.

If you provide investment evidence to your company and your gross taxable benefit is under the taxable cap, you will not have to pay any tax. Thus no TDS can be excluded from your taxes. In the same way, you should apply Form 15G and Form 15H to the bank if your gross income is well below the taxable cap so that you really do not subtract TDS on your interest income.

In the event that you have not been able to provide evidence to the employer or that your employer or bank has indeed subtracted TDS and that your overall revenue is well below the taxable limit – you can file a return and receive a refund of such a TDS.
