The assessee is required to pay the taxes on his income. Tax is collected by two modes:
- Deduction or collection of tax at source (TDS / TCS)
- Direct payment by assessee i.e. Advance tax/ self- assessment tax.
In this blog, we will take an in-depth understanding on how to make TDS payment.
TDS or Tax Deduction at Source is the amount of tax already deducted from the income of a person before the income is transferred in the hands of the receiver. Consider this example for a better understanding,
Suppose Mr. A has won a lottery for an amount of Rs 1,00,000. TDS on the same needs to be done at the rate of 30%. Now, in this case, the amount that would be given to Mr. A would be Rs 70,000 (Rs 1,00,000 – 30%) and not 1,00,000. Since the tax has been deducted before rendering the income in hands of the receiver it is known as Tax Deduction at Source. If no TDS provisions would have been levied then, MR. A would have received Rs 1,00,000 and later on paid Rs 30,000 (Rs 1,00,000 * 30%) to the government himself.
The TDS so deducted needs to be deposited by the deductor to the government within the fixed time frame. The payment can be done
