New way to file TDS and TCS return, 26Q, 24Q, 27Q, 27EQ


The Indian Taxation Code defines Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) as a sort of advance tax that is taken out of an individual’s or an organization’s profits before the money is actually credited to that entity’s account. By enforcing the TDS laws on both individual and corporate incomes, the government is able to raise money. The Central Board of Direct Taxes is in charge of and oversees TDS rules and regulations under the Income Tax Act of 1961. (CBDT).

The phrase “Tax Deducted at Source” means that the payee or employer withholds the tax prior to making a payment to the recipient, as the name would imply. Both regularly earned income and income earned sporadically or irregularly are subject to tax deducted at source. TDS is therefore applicable to a variety of incomes, including but not limited to interest, rent, professional fees, commission, salary and commission.

Benefits of TDS payment

Since TDS is due on earnings, it’s vital to remember that the obligation to pay TDS only applies in the event that earnings really occur. TDS is subtracted before payments are made. On payments made in cash, check or credit, deductions must be made. The TDS-deducted money is then deposited with additional government organisations.

TDS payment has a number of benefits including the following:

     Tax evasion is stopped by removing TDS at the source.

     Taxes are properly and promptly collected.

     Many people are included in the tax net.

     The government receives a consistent stream of income from TDS collection.
