TDS Filing

Understanding TDS Return Filing: 

Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is a mechanism where tax is deducted at the source of income, such as salaries, rent, interest, etc., by the deductor (payer) and deposited to the government on behalf of the deductee (recipient). 

As a deductor, you are responsible for filing TDS returns electronically, summarizing the TDS deducted and deposited for a specific quarter.

Outline of TDS return filing process 

  1. Preparation:
    • Data Accuracy: TDS statements are prepared using government-issued software to ensure data integrity. 
    • Validation: These statements are then validated using another official tool to catch any errors before submission. 
     Electronic Filing

    • Digital Signature: Returns can be verified using a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) for stronger authentication (optional). 
    • OTP: Alternatively, a one-time password (OTP) sent to a registered mobile number can be used for verification. 
  3. Record Keeping
