    FORM ITR-V has been e-filed on 31.072014. But after filling it is found that, the details given in the computation of income and tax thereon, the coloumn 1 to 6 are not filled.

    There is a taxable income and it is calculate during the running year and TDS is deduted from salary and it is paid to government directly by the organisation.

    As entries at the points (1) to (6) is not displayed, it is noticed only after e-filing. the TDS paid by organisation is arrived as refundable.

    My salary is Rs.24,840/pm ..Is TDS applicable on my salary? Presently they deduct Rs.1500/pm and At times they deduct and at times they don’t I am confused

    • February 22, 2013 at 12:49 pm

      Can you provide the full details like PF, Prof Tax, and other break up so that I can calculate your tax accurately.
      Nevertheless, from the information you provided, assuming Rs. 24,840/- of salary is after all deductions, your Total Tax for the Financial Year 2012-13 (April’12-March’13) comes to 10,094/-.So the cumulative total of all TDS amounts deducted on different months for this FY 2012-13 should not exceed 10,094/-.

      Provide full breakup of your salary, we will calculate TDS amount accurately.
