Failure to Deposit TDS On Time Will Attract Penalty: CBDT
June, 06th 2013

Failure to deposit timely and correct TDS or TCS will now attract a penalty ranging from Rs 200 to Rs one lakh by the Income Tax department.

All the Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) range offices of the department across the country have been asked by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to ensure compliance in this area and also inform and make aware the authorised deductors about this new action being initiated by the taxman.

According to the new instructions issued, a deductor, either government or private, will have to submit a "compulsory" fine of Rs 200 for delay in filing either TDS or Tax Collected at Source (TCS) every day beyond the stipulated date of remittance of these category of taxes.

Similarly, the penalty would be between Rs 10,000 to Rs one lakh for furnishing incorrect information or failure to file the collection statement within the due date.

"The assessing officer of the department will use sections 234E and 271H of the I-T Act to ensure that TDS or TCS collections are not delayed or faltered. The department, in many cases, has found that deductors delay for long the filing of these category of taxes even after deducting it from the salary of their employees," a senior official said.

The TDS regime has to be strengthened and hence such measures are important, the official said.

A big chunk of 41 per cent, in the total tax collections in the last fiscal, came from the TDS category alone.

During financial year 2012-13, Rs 2,30,188 crore tax was collected under the TDS category while the total direct taxes collections stood at 5,58,970 crore.

The department, during its recent deliberations with top I-T and CBDT officials here, has also decided to strengthen its regime for obtaining TDS from salaries of employees in order to collect more revenue under this category.
