TDS on payment

TDS is the abbreviation for Tax Deducted at Source. TDS is a direct taxation mechanism which was introduced to collect taxes from the source of income itself or at the time of income payout. Under this mechanism, a person liable to make payment to any other person is required to deduct tax at source from the total amount payable and transfer the balance to the recipient of such income. The person liable to make payment is called deductor while the recipient of the income is called the deductee. The deductor would deduct TDS at the time of crediting the amount to the account of the deductee or at the time of actual payment whichever is earlier. The TDS so deducted shall reflect in Form 26AS of the deductee for the relevant financial year. The deductee can take tax credit of such TDS amount at the time of filing of Income Tax Return.
