Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is the amount deducted by a person (deductor) who is required to pay another person (deductee) a specific amount of money. TDS is tax deducted from money while making payments such as salary, rent, fees, commission, interest, and so on. The deductor transfers the balance to the deductee after deducting the sum. The TDS so deducted is remitted to the Central Government by the deductor.
TDS is an income tax deducted when a specific payment is made. According to the Income Tax Act, every firm or individual is required to deduct tax at the point of payment if the amount paid exceeds a specified threshold. The individual who gets a payment is likewise obligated to pay taxes. The goal of TDS is to reduce the possibility of evading taxes by the income recipients.
TDS must be deposited with the central government by the individual or firm deducting it. Once deposited, the amount will be reflected on the Form 26AS of the person who got the income after the TDS deduction. All TDS payments reflected on the deductee's Form 26AS will be immediately adjusted in their taxable income.
The deductee should also receive a TDS certificate from the deductor, which they can use to file their Income Tax Return. All TDS deducted provides the deductee with tax credits, lowering their tax liability.
