Where TDS is applicable and how to avoid it

Salary income: Employer deducts TDS on total income, including income other than salary after taking into account all deductions and exemptions. This saves the individual the hassle of paying tax himself.

TDS rate: As applicable to individual based on his income and deductions.

Interest income: TDS is deducted by banks on FDs and RDs if the interest exceeds Rs 10,000 a year. TDS does not end tax liability. Someone in a higher tax slab will need to pay additional tax. Those in lower income bracket can seek a tax refund.

TDS rate: If PAN has been provided, TDS is 10% of income. Otherwise it is 20% of income.

EPF withdrawals: Withdrawals from Employee Provident Fund are subject to TDS if you withdraw before five years of service. However, no TDS is deducted on withdrawals of less than Rs 30,000.

TDS rate: If PAN has been provided, TDS is 10% of the withdrawal. Otherwise it is 20% of the amount.

Property sale: TDS is applicable if the value of the property exceeds Rs 50 lakh. If instalments are being paid TDS is deducted on each instalment. The buyer must obtain a Tax Deduction Account Number to deduct TDS. TDS has to be de -posited along with Form 26QB within a week from the end of the month in which TDS was deducted. Buyer must give TDS certificate to the seller.

TDS rate: If PAN has been provided, TDS is 1% of sale value. Otherwise it is 20% of the sale value.

On NRIs: NRIs are not permitted to submit Form 15G/H for NRO deposits and TDS is mandatory on all incomes. In case of resident Indians, TDS kicks in only if interest exceeds Rs 10,000 a year. But there are no such threshold for NRO deposits. Easwar committee has recommended easing of TDS rules for NRIs.

TDS rate: 30% on interest income from bank deposits, 20% from corporate deposits, 15% on short-term capital gains if securities transaction tax (STT) has been paid and 10% on longterm capital gains. If no STT is paid on short-term gains, TDS is 30%. Flat rate of 20% on sale of property.

How to avoid it

TDS can be avoided by submitting Form 15G or 15H. Form 15H is for senior citizens. It can be submitted if there is no tax on total income. Form 15G is for everybody else, except NRIs. It can be filed if tax on total income is nil and total interest income is less than the basic exemption limit.

CBDT launches ‘e-nivaran’ facility to resolve income tax grievances

CBDT has launched the ambitious ‘e-nivaran’ facility for online redressal of taxpayers’ grievances related to refunds, ITRs and PAN among others as part of its initiative to reduce instances of harassment of the public when it comes to complaints related to the I-T Department.

An exclusive ‘e-nivaran’ (electronic resolution) link has recently been activated on the e-filing portal of the department — — where taxpayers can register their complaints through their personal computer systems and receive a special PIN number on their registered mobile and email, as their unique number to keep track of the issue.

The ‘e-nivaran’ module, a senior official said, will work on the lines of the internet-based Income Tax Returns (ITRs) filing system and taxpayers can register all complaints related to delay in refunds, filing of e-returns, Tax Deducted at Source (TDS), PAN issues, and those pertaining to their Assessing Officer (AO).

“People who do not have a Permanent Account Number (PAN) but have some problem in connection with their I-T case can also use the e-nivaran facility. Documents can be uploaded in a PDF format and clubbed as a ZIP file,” the official said.

A special space has also been provided for ‘grievance description’ along with furnishing of details like mention of the Assessment Year (in case of individual) or the Financial Year (in case of deductor).

Address, postal PIN code, mobile number and email are mandatory fields to be filled up.

“The new system will ensure, like e-filing, that the taxpayer gets his grievance redressed by just using an internet-enabled computer and does not require them to travel to a tax office. The ‘e-nivaran’ has been now connected to all electronic databases and the modern business application software platform of the department to ensure quick resolution,” the official said.

The ‘e-nivaran’ form is also expected to be provided at the Aaykar Sampark Kendras (ASK) (tax facilitation centre), located in over 300 cities, in a physical form which will later fed into the system by tax officials.

Once the grievance is registered, the system will also issue an acknowledgment number which can be quoted by the taxpayer for all his future communications with the taxman and also to track the progress of the complaint.
