What is TDS (Tax Deducted at Source)?

TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) was created with the goal of collecting tax directly from the source of revenue. According to this notion, a person (deductor) who is required to make a payment of a specific sort to another person (deductee) must deduct tax at source and send it to the Central Government’s account.

Mistakes that can be done by TDS Deductor

Incorrect Assessment Year

A difference in the specifics of the processing and reporting of tax in the TDS challan will result from an inaccurate financial or assessment year. As a result, there are chances that a deductee will not receive any Tax Credit.

 Incorrect TAN Information

Individuals obligated to collect or deduct tax from payments under the Income Tax Act of 1961 are given a Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN). However, the TAN is sometimes mentioned or changed improperly in the system. As a result, the payment is not recorded in the tax returns, and the tax department is unable to validate them.

 Incorrect PAN Information

If a person’s Permanent Account Number (PAN) is entered incorrectly, the tax paid will not be recorded, resulting in non-payment of tax by the same person.

 Date of Deposit is Mismatched

If the deposit date differs from the TDS challan date, there will be a data mismatch, and the refund will most likely to be refused.

 Wrong or incorrect information of a Deductor

The TDS filed may be rejected if the information provided by an individual or a representative of an organisation or entity is erroneous. The same goes for the deductor information, which if entered improperly will prevent the file from being submitted to the portals.
