WHAT IS TDS

Tax Deducted at Source or TDS was introduced to collect tax from the source of income. According to the Income Tax Act, anyone making a payment is required to deduct tax if the payment is crossing certain limits. The limits or the rates are prescribed by the Income Tax department. TDS is managed by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), which comes under the Department of Revenue.
 
The company or the person deducting the tax is called a deductor and the company or the person receiving the deducted payment if the deductee. The deductor is required to remit the tax into the account of the Union government and the deductee would be entitled to get credit of the amount taxed on the basis of Form 26AS.
