Reply to TDS Demand Notice
Many persons receive a TDS demand notice from the Income Tax Department. A TDS demand notice could be sent for any one of the following defaults:
The TDS demand notice does not inform the deductor about the reason behind the notice. To find out the reason for default, the deductor has to download a justification report from the TRACES website. The justification report contains all details about the TDS demand notice.
TDS Return is required to be filed by any person who is liable to deduct tax at source. A TDS Return is a quarterly statement which has to be submitted to the Income Tax Department of India. Submitting TDS Return is mandatory if you are a deductor. It should contain all details of TDS deducted and deposited by you for a particular quarter.
You may need to file TDS correction or TDS revision if you have wrongly shown any details in original TDS Returns. Such mistakes can be wrong PAN, wrong date, or short or no tax deduction. In all such cases, in order to ensure seamless credit to the person whose TDS is deducted, you should revise your TDS Return.
