As the members are aware, the Direct Taxes Committee of ICAI, has in all its endeavors, tried to strengthen the relationship between the taxpayers and the Department by submitting representations on various issues arising out of direct tax laws.
One of the important areas where issues are being faced by the assessees is TDS. The issues reported to ICAI are being regularly taken up with the appropriate authorities. During the course of one such meeting with CPC(TDS), it was informed to ICAI that majority of the issues can be resolved if the communications sent by CPC(TDS) at the registered id of the deductors receive their due attention. Since majority of the TDS returns are filed through our members, ICAI consented to bring the aforesaid communications to the notice of its members.
The said communications relate to issues like Release of new RPUs/FVUs, best practices to follow , reminder to file TDS returns and consequences of failure to do so and the other like issues. Even though, aforesaid communications have been hosted on the TRACES website at the link http://contents.tdscpc.gov.in/en/tdscpc-communication.html, a consolidated .pdf file of the same has been shared with ICAI for dissemination of knowledge among its members.
The table below contains both the consolidated as well as specific/individual communications for the benefit of the members:
