How To Avoid Excess TDS?

 

 

 

It's that time of the year when you think taxes. One of the most important things in taxes is the TDS or Tax Deducted at Source. Your employer deducts tax from your salary and pays it to the Government, on your behalf. You are given the Form 16, which is your income certificate. It contains details of your income and taxes paid on this income. 

In this article you will learn how to avoid excess TDS deduction and also make sure, the TDS is deposited with the Government.

How To Avoid Excess TDS?

 

1. Avoid TDS on interest income

 

You earn interest on your bank fixed deposits. If your estimated total income which also includes interest income, is most probably less than the basic exemption limit (Less than Rs 2,50,000 a year) in case of male/female below 60 years or (Less than Rs 3,00,000 a year) in case of senior citizens, you can submit the Form 15G, if you are below 60 years or Form 15H, if you are above 60 years, at the bank.

2. Avoid TDS on salary income

 

To avoid TDS on salary you can submit:

 

  • The details of the rent you have paid like name, address and PAN of the landlord and the amount of rent, to claim the HRA benefit.
  • Details of any investment proof that enjoys the Section 80C benefit up to a maximum of Rs 1.5 Lakhs a year. These include the LIC receipt on your life insurance plan, the PPF contribution, Home Loan EMI (Principal) repayment proof and so on.
  • You need a copy of the amount deposited under the NPS, to claim a deduction under Section 80CCD.
  • Your health insurance premium receipt to enjoy the Section 80D benefit.
  • Certificate of interest paid on the home loan to claim the Section 24 Deduction.
  • Receipts of eligible donations/charity under Section 80G.

 

3. Make sure the TDS is deposited with the Government

 

If your employer does not deposit the TDS deducted from your salary with the Government, you will get a notice from the IT Department. If you want to make sure that your employer has deposited the TDS with the Government, you can log in to the Income Tax Departments e-filing website, and check the TDS credit under your PAN, by viewing Form 26AS.

Form 26AS gets updated on a regular basis, as and when the deductor files quarterly TDS return.  The Government has also launched a new initiative to intimate you and other salaried employees via SMS. You will get an SMS each quarter, vis-a-vis the TDS deposited with the Government by your employer. Be Wise, Get Rich.
