  • Income tax Department can send notice to any Assesses under Section 139(9) 142(2), 143(1), 143(2), 148, 156 or 245. Our team diligently handles such notices and makes representation before the Income tax Assessing Officer or the concerned officer in the Income tax department. If grieved by the decision of the Assessing Officer, then the assessee has the option to approach CIT (Appeals) and thereafter Income tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT). We have contested many cases pertaining to Gifts, Property Transactions, difference in Interpretations of statutes, Shares transactions and many more cases.
  • Section 197 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 provides for the facility of NIL deduction of tax at source or at a deduction at a Lower rate of tax. To avail of this benefit the assessee whose TDS is likely to be deducted on certain receipts should make an application before the TDS Assessing Officer who has a jurisdiction over his/ her/ its case. We have handled many cases and got Certificate for low TDS or TDS exemption from the Income Tax Authorities for our clients.
Section 192, 194 and 195 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 has prescribed various types payments on which tax has to be deducted at source at the time of payment or credit whichever is earlier. Limits have been mentioned in every Section above which requirement of TDS arises. The TDS so deducted can be set off against the income tax payable by the assesses against whose income tax has been deducted at source. To take this benefit the tax deductor has to file its TDS returns and issue TDS certificate to the deductee on frequency as prescribed under the Law. Once the TDS returns are filed the TDS gets reflected on the online tax view statement of the assessee and this can be claimed by the assessee in its income tax return. The Income Tax Department also processes income tax returns filed by the assesses and issues refund giving TDS claims made by the assessee. Thus it is imperative to correctly file TDS returns.
The initial step is to obtain Tax Deduction Account Number (TAN). Every assessee required to deduct TDS under the law shall obtain TAN. We get the TAN registration for all types of assesses.
