      No Comments on Types of Corrections in TDS Returns
There are 6 types of corrections namely C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C9. The following table briefly talks about each correction type:

Type Corrections in:
C1 Deductor details: All details of deductor except the TAN No. can be modified.
C2 Challan details: All details of the challan can be modified. C2 can include C1 type correction
C3 Deductee details: All details except the PAN number of the  Deductee can be modified. One may add/delete/modify a deductee in the existing challan.
C4 Salary Details: This type of correction is only applicable to correction of 4th Quarter statement of Form 24Q. All the details of the salary can be modified here except the PAN number of the employee. Here there is no provision of updating the record, a record has to be deleted and a new record has to be added with updated details.
C5 PAN: In this type of correction deductee PAN is updated. When Pan is updated for Salary record the same will also get updated in the deduction record. PAN has to be updated quarterwise i.e a separate correction return needs to be filed for each quarter where the PAN number is mentioned incorrectly.
C9 Addition of new Challans and/or Deductions: Any new addition of Challan and/or deductions forms Correction type C9. When a deduction is added with Tax amount zero then automatically a NIL challan is generated
It may be noted the C1,C2, C3,C4,C5 and C9 type of correction may be made in the same single correction.

Given below are the points one should remember regarding TDS statement:

  • Correct Reporting: Cancellation of TDS return and deductee row is no longer permissible. Accordingly, it is very important to report correct and valid particulars (TAN of the deductor, Category (Government / Non-Government) of the deductor, PAN of the deductees and other particulars of deduction of tax) in the quarterly TDS return
  • Quote correct and valid lower rate TDS certificate in TDS return wherever the TDS has been deducted at lower / zero rate on the basis of certificate issued by the Assessing Officer
  • Last Provisional Receipt Number to be quoted in regular TDS / TCS returns: While filing new regular (original) TDS return, it is mandatory to quote the last accepted Provisional Receipt Number of the regular quarterly TDS / TCS return of any form type
  • TDS return cannot be filed without quoting any valid challan and deductee row
  • Late TDS filing fee, being statutory in nature, cannot be waived
  • Download PAN Master from TRACES and use the same to file new statement to avoid quoting of incorrect and invalid PAN
  • Validate PAN and name of fresh deductees from TRACES before quoting it in TDS statement
  • Download TDS certificate from TRACES (http://www.tdscpc.gov.in) bearing unique TDS certificate number and issue to the taxpayers within due date
  • File correction statements promptly in case of incomplete and incorrect reporting
  • Download the justification report to know the details of TDS defaults, if any, on processing of TDS return
  • Do view your Dashboard regularly to know about your TDS performance
  • Government deductors should obtain BIN (Book Identification Number) from their Accounts Officer (AIN holder) in time and quote the same correctly in TDS statement

Interest on Late Deduction of TDS

      No Comments on Interest on Late Deduction of TDS

The due date for deduction is either at the time of giving credit or payment of the dues, whichever is earlier. Late deduction happens in the event the tax is not deducted when the deduction is due and is deducted at a later date. The interest for the delay in deduction is charged at the rate of 1% per month or part of a month of the delay. For Example if the due date for a deduction is 2nd of June and it is deducted on 8th of July in the same year, then the interest is charged at the rate of 1% for each month i.e. (June & July) aggregating to 2% interest.
