    Can you please confirm what is the deadline for depositing TDS amount deductions, keeping in mind that date of filing ITR has been extended from 30th Sep to 30th Nov 2014. Does this mean that TDA payment date has also been extended. The point is concerns is the Disallowance of Expenditure under section 40(a)(i) and 40(a)(ia) of Income Tax Act, 1961, which says that Apart from consequences like Interest, penalty and prosecution for Non Deduction or Nonpayment of TDS after deduction, this is a consequence for assessees getting profits and gains from business or profession. Please help and clarify this.

Can you please help me in this concern.

    1. TDSMAN Post author

      Dear Sir,

      As per the TDS rules as provided by the department there is no provision to enter March 24G in the next Financial Year returns. To the best of our knowledge, we can advice you to enter March 24G in previous Financial Year Q4 returns.
