Frequently Asked Questions

TDS means Tax Deducted at Source. It is the amount deducted from payments of various kinds such as salary, contract payment, commission, etc. This deducted amount can be adjusted against the tax due to the deductee.

The specified payment includes salary, interest, commission, brokerage, professional fees, royalty, contract payments, etc. The person who deducts TDS is called deductor and the person whose tax is being deducted is called deductee. TDS is not required to be deducted by Individuals and HUF except for those whose accounts are required to be audited u/s 44AB i.e. whose gross receipts in the preceding financial year in case of business is more than 2 crore (AY 2017-2018) or 1 crore ( AY 2016-2017) and in case of the profession 50 lakhs ( AY 2017-2018) or 25 lakhs (AY 2016-2017).

Thus such a person must make an application within a month of deducting TDS for allotment of Tax Deduction and Collection Number (TAN) in Form 49B.
