What is TDS?

Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is a mechanism through which the Government of India collects taxes at the time of transaction occurrence. In this case, the tax is deducted either when the payee’s account is credited or at the time of payment, depending on which event occurs earlier. The tax is deducted during the payment process for salary payments and life insurance policies. The entity responsible for making the payment must deposit the deducted tax amount with the Income Tax Department. TDS facilitates the direct payment of a portion of the tax to the Income Tax Department, typically at 10% or within a specified range.

What Is a TDS Certificate?

It is issued at the end of the financial year and includes information such as the amount of income earned, the number of TDS deducted, and the amount of tax paid by the employee or payee. The employee or payee uses the TDS Certificate to claim credit for the tax paid while filing their income tax returns.

TDS Return Form

A TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) return form is a document used to report tax deductions made from an individual’s or organization’s income. It is filed with the Income Tax Department of India and is used to ensure that the individual or organization pays the correct amount of tax. The TDS return form consists of details such as the taxpayer’s name and PAN (Permanent Account Number), the tax Deducter’s name and TAN (Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number), the period of tax deduction, and the total amount of tax deducted. It also includes details of the tax deductible at sources, such as the nature of the payment, the amount paid, and the rate at which the tax was deducted. TDS return forms can be filed electronically or through a physical form. It is important to file the TDS return form on time to avoid any penalties or fines.

Fine for Late Filing of TDS/TCS Returns


The fine for late filing of TDS/TCS returns in India is as follows:

  • Under Section 234E of the Income Tax Act, 1961, a late filing fee of Rs. 200 per day is levied for every day of delay in filing the TDS/TCS return, up to a maximum of the amount of TDS/TCS deducted or collected.
  • Under Section 271H of the Income Tax Act, 1961, the Assessing Officer may direct the person who fails to file the TDS/TCS return within the due date to pay a penalty of Rs. 10,000, which may be extended to Rs. 1,00,000. The penalty for late filing of TDS/TCS returns is in addition to the late filing fee. It is important to note that the penalty for late filing of TDS/TCS returns can be waived if the person can show that there was a reasonable cause for the delay.

The table below lists the deadlines for depositing tax withheld at source and filing TDS returns for each deducter’s fiscal year 2023–2024. Check for the TDS rates as well every year.

Fine for Late Filing of TDS/TCS Returns

Late filing charges or collected as per Section 234e. Each and every person who files a TDS after the due date is subject to a fine of ₹200 everyday until the TDS return is filed. Say, for instance, that you deducted TDS of ₹5000 on 13 May 2023, and that you file your first quarter’s return on 17 November 2023, rather than the required 31 July 2023.

The delay is 109 days long, measured from 1 August 2023, to 17 November 2023.

The result of the calculation is ₹200 times 109 days, or ₹21,800. Since the total late fee amount is greater than the TDS amount of ₹5000 you will be required to pay ₹5000 as a late filing fee. You must also pay interest for any TDS deposit delays, which is described in the section below. WIth the help of ANBIFM TDS deposit online, you can avoid TDS deposit delays.

FAQs on Easy Online TDS Return Payment

How do online TDS returns work?

The TDS concept was introduced in order to collect tax directly from the source of income. This theory states that a person (the deductor) who is required to pay a particular kind to another person (the deductee) is required to withhold tax at source and remit it to the Central Government’s account.

You can now request a TDS refund for the additional amount deducted if you pay taxes at a rate of 5%. Similarly, you can request a TDS refund for any excess TDS deducted from your pay because your employer did not receive your 80C investment proofs or rent receipts for your house rent allowance.

The government has recently mandated the filing of income tax returns, even for individuals whose income falls below the basic exemption limit, if their total TDS/TCS (Tax Deducted at Source/Tax Collected at Source) during the financial year amounts to ₹25,000 or more.

The deadline for the government to deposit tax withheld is 7 April. The tax must be deposited by 30 April for all other deductors.

The deductors are required to submit the TDS returns on time. TDS return filing can be done online. The payee’s Form 26AS will reflect the information once the TDS returns have been electronically submitted.

It usually takes 3-6 months for the refund amount to be credited.

Section 234E requires a penalty of Rs 200 each day. You can still pay TDS after the deadline. The deductor is responsible for paying the fine for each day that the failure persists. Don’t delay, with the help of Vakilsearch’s TDS payment online option, you won’t have to miss out on dates.

Yes. You must file an income tax return whether your employer withheld tax at source (TDS) from your pay or you paid tax yourself.
