Every taxpayer whose TDS has been deducted is required to complete a TDS return. These forms must be filed at specific times, and the information that must be supplied to the income tax authorities includes the TAN number (Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number), the amount deducted, the Permanent Account Number (PAN), the TDS payment, the kind of payment, and so on.

 

There are late filing costs for late submission of TDS returns, therefore it is critical to remember the due dates as well as the relevant documentation necessary.

 

TDS Deducting Deposit Deadlines

The tax deductor shall deposit the TDS (tax deducted at source) to the government within the time period specified in Section 200 of the Income Tax Act of 1961. Current income tax laws require the tax deductor to deposit the tax with the government by the seventh day of the following month. The government and other deductors have varied deadlines for taxes deducted in March. The government has until April 7 to deposit tax deducted. The tax must be deposited by April 30 for all other deductors.
