“The hardest thing in the world to understand is the Income Tax.”- This quote has come from an all-time great scientist and genius Albert Einstein. Indeed, taxation laws are highly complex. Entrepreneurs, traders, and individuals often get baffled in computing tax on their income. One of our taxable incomes is interest on FD or any investment.

Banks, by rule, have to deduct TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) when your interest income is more than INR 10000 a year. The bank includes all your deposits, from all the branches, to calculate this income. But what if our total income is below the taxable limit? The government has given the provision to request banks not to deduct any TDS on interest if our income is not taxable. Forms 15G and 15H are used for this purpose.

Q 1. What is tax deducted at source?

  • 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 the same is directly 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.
  • The following illustration will explain the TDS mechanism.

  • Deductors can update status of TDS/TCS statement to non-filing online after login at TDSCPC website.
  • The benefit of this facility is that instead of filing nil TDS/TCS return for a particular quarter/period, one just need to update the status to non filing of return.
