While preparing Form 26Q by using NSDL return preparation Utility I am facing a problem. i.e. The deduction is 30% instead of 10%. The 30% amount has already been deposited in the bank. The deductee does not have PAN No.
Under these circumstances i entered the data like this amount paid 100000 tds 30000.
now when I tried to validate the data i am getting an error message
"INVALID PAN DEDUCTION AT HIGHER RATE IS NOT SELECTED"
WHAT SHOULD I WRITE AT PAN NO. AND WHAT OPTION i SHOULD CHOOSE FOR THE ABOVE QUERY.
From F.Y 2010-11 for getting the TDS returns validated - PAN details of 100% deductees are required. In case PAN is unavailable then TDs at a higher rate of 20% (30% in case of sec. 194B, 194BB) is required to be deducted.
In the input file there is a column viz. Rate at which TDS deducted, wherein you have to select the the option of Higher rate than the rate in force. After carrying out this exercise for all the deductees whose PAN is unavailable you will be able to validate the file.
Caution: Incase TDS is not deducted at a higher rate as mentioned above, despite not having PAN details of deductees, then you will subsequently receive a notice for making payment of short deduction of tax.
In filing the etds return of 26Q last month i have no pan number of some deductee then i selected the higher rate of deduction i.e C. Now revising the return with PAN Number higher rate of deduction i.e C is not removed. Please help me about this matter.
I received a notice from IT department, its regarding short deductions in 26Q1 of Financial year 2012-2013. I couldn't able to get the justification report in Traces to get the short deductions list as per IT notice. Please help me on this.
