TDS Liabilities in India – An Overview
Tax Deducted at Source or 'TDS' is the tax, which either a company or individual collects in against of a payment made of value more than the income tax threshold amount. Here, one who makes payment for his/her/its purchase collects the tax and is called ‘Deductor’ while, one receiving such payment with TDS deduction is said to be ‘Deductee’. TDS should be deposited by the deductor in the IT Department’s Account and a TDS Return is usually filed quarterly (except, for certain cases, such as, payment for immovable property, etc. where one time Return is filed) in specific due date. Like income tax, failure of on-time TDS transfer and its filing to IT Department of India is a punishable legal offence and thus should not be practiced intentionally.
