Tax Deducted at Source is a common tax payment that is followed by both an employee and employer together. This TDS is applicable when the company is making the salary or annual payment to the employee.

When the salary range meets the TDS requirement then a certain amount will be deducted under the name of TDS. And then the employee will receive the salary once TDS amount is deducted, so employees already have TDS deductions.

TDS should be deducted by your employer and then it should be readily paid to the Income tax department under TDS submission for the respective employee. So, this article is mainly for companies, firms and industries who have employees whose TDS they have to submit to the Income tax department every month.

TDS Payment due date

The TDS payment due date for submission by a company is always on the 7th of the next month. It means, once the employee salaries are deducted from the TDS applicable, then before the 7th of the same month the company has to submit all their employees TDS amount with respect to their PAN Card information.

So, even the Income tax department will be able to map the TDS submitted for each of the employees under their respective PAN Card details. Sometimes there can be a confusion among new HR and finance holders for companies that TDS would paid annually. But, that is incorrect as the Income tax department has clearly stated that all the TDS payments should made before the 7th of the next month.
