e-Application for Obtaining e-Certificate for Deduction of TDS/Withholding Tax at Lower/Nil Rate
Legislature, by insertion of Chapter XVII-B in the Income Tax Act, 1961, has casted the responsibility of deducting and depositing tax at source (TDS), at applicable rates, in relation to the income of the recipient taxpayer, upon the payer of such income. The recipient taxpayer can claim credit of this TDS at the time of filing his/her annual ITR.
However, at times, the recipient taxpayer may not have taxable income or his/her effective tax rate may be lower than the applicable TDS rate. In such cases, it becomes very tedious and time consuming for the taxpayer to claim income-tax refund in respect of excess TDS being deducted on his/her income.
In order to remove such hardship of the taxpayer, there are provisions in section 197/195 of the Income Tax Act, wherein the taxpayer may file an application for obtaining Certificate for deduction of TDS at lower/nil rate.
Currently, such application for obtaining Certificate for deduction of TDS/Withholding Tax at lower/nil rateis to be filed electronically in prescribed Form 13, by the tax-payer/deductee in the TRACES website, as per procedure specified herein.
