TDS or Tax Deducted at Source is an advanced tax deduction system specially designed and presented by the Income Tax Department of India. The methodology behind this system is to deduct a certain percentage of tax at the source of payment. The deduction varies between 1% to 10% depending on the individual's monthly income.
When paying an employee(deductee) his/her monthly allowance, the firm(deductor) deducts TDS under Section 192. The firm would need to submit Form 24Q every quarter of the financial year to indicate TDS for salary. Form 24Q indicates the total remuneration paid to the deductee and the TDS deducted on the employee's salary. No firm must refrain from abiding by the norms to file Form 24Q when required.
