What is TDS Return Filing?

TDS is the abbreviation for tax deducted at Source. A Company or any person making payment is required to deduct tax at Source if the payment exceeds the prescribed threshold limit. The Income-tax Department of our country decides the rate at which the TDS will be deducted. The entity/ individual which deducts the said amount is termed as Deductor, and the person whose tax is deducted is termed as Deductee. It becomes the responsibility of the Deductor to deduct the TDS before making the payment and deposit it to the government.
