Provisions related to TDS deduction and applicability

The Finance Act 2013 had provided that purchaser of an immovable property (other than agricultural land) worth over Rs 50 lakh is required to pay withholding tax at the rate of 1% from the consideration payable to a resident transferor.  The rate at which tax is to be cut is 1%, but it would go up to as high as 20% if the seller does not disclose his permanent account number.  This amendment is effective from 1st June, 2013.

    Dear Sir,

    Kindly inform due date for payment of TDS U/s. 194IA.

    If we are crediting party’s account in the month of March’14, then we can pay the same on or before 30/04/2014 or we have to pay the same by 07/04/2014.

    Kindly reply at the earliest.

    Please clerify if the tax deducted at the time of payment & credited to the Income Tax Department is refunded to the seller of the property or to the purchaser. Similarly please also confirm as to who will reflect the deducted amount in the annual return of tax submitted to the tax authorities.Is it the seller or the buyer.

    I have forgotten to print Form 26QB though I have the acknowledgement number and made the payment. I also have the Challan after online payment to the Bank.

    How can I take a reprint of form 26QB.
