CBDT brings in new changes in TDS rules
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has revised the Income Tax Rules, 1962 by bringing in new changes to the provisions regarding Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) that are filed on or after April 1, 2010.
New rules for TDS deposits
Every month the employers deduct tax on the salaries and other payments distributed to the employees. According to the new rules, the employers should deposit the tax deduction for a month within 7 days from the end of that month. However, the tax deducted for the month of March, which is the end of the financial year, can be deposited on or before April 30 of the year.
For annual TDS certificate
The new CBDT rules also make it mandatory for the employers to issue the Form 16 or the annual TDS certificate to their salaried employees by May 31 soon after the end of the financial year. Previously the deadline was April 30.
