Definition of TDS in Accounting

What is TDS in Accounting? TDS or tax deducted at source is a deduction made by someone while making a payment or crediting the account, whichever is early. This could be your employer, customer or even a bank paying you interest on a fixed deposit. Before making a payment to you, the payer deducts and pays tax on your behalf to the Income-tax department. You can claim/adjust TDS credit while filing your income tax return against income tax payable. You can view the details of the TDS credit in Form 26AS by logging into your income tax filing account.
