What is TDS?

Normally, a person is supposed to pay income tax, at the time of filing his income return for the year. However, the concept of Tax Deducted at Source or TDS, was introduced in India with an aim to deduct tax at the source by deducting it as and when it is originating and not at a later date. Thus, by introducing TDS, the government collected tax in advance so as to lessen the chances of tax evasion by the taxpayer.

Tax is deducted at the time of payment in many cases, some of which are:

1. Salary
2. Dividends
3. Winning from horse race
4. Winning from lottery of crosswords puzzle
5. Bank interest
6. Brokerage or commission
7. Interest on securities
8. Payment of rent
9. Payment in respect of life insurance policy to policy holder
10. Payment in respect of deposits under the National Saving Scheme
11. Payment of accumulated balance of employee's Provident Fund
12. Payment on account of repurchases of units by Mutual Funds or Unit Trust of India
13. Payment of compensation on compulsory acquisition of certain immovable property

Thus, at the time of these payments, tax is deducted before making the payment and the amount paid is net of tax. This tax is then deposited in the account of the Central Government by the deductor.

When should TDS be deducted and by whom?

Any person making payments specified in the Income Tax Act, is required to deduct tax at the time of making such payment. However, TDS shouldn't be deducted if the person making the payment is an individual or HUF, whose books aren't required to be audited.

Deductor: The company or person who makes the payment and deducts tax on the same is called a TDS deductor. The deductor is then supposed to deposit the tax collected with the government.

Deductee: The company or person who receives the payment, net of tax is called a deductee.
