Late Fee u/s 234E for TDS on Property
I purchased a property in Mumbai on 31 Dec 2020, with an agreement value of 1.7 cr, I paid approxamately 43 lakhs til February 2021. TDS @0.75% amounts to approx 33000. There was a delay in payment of TDS amount, which I paid only in May 2021. I got a notification from the Income Tax Department u/d 200A for interest on late payment and late filing fee u/s 234E which is approximately 10,000. My Question
1. Is there a way I can get a waiver of the late fee?
2. Was TDS applicable to me in the first place in FY 2020-21 (as TDS is applicable u/s 194-IA only if payment exceeds 50 lakhs in a financial year?
3. What are my options to reverse or save on the late fee notice?
