TDS or Tax Deducted from Source is the type of tax which an individual is liable to pay. The tax deducted from an employee's income goes to activities such as development of infrastructure, defense etc. If the TDS deducted is greater than the actual tax amount, an employee is eligible for TDS Refund. To receive the refund amount on TDS, the individual is required to file TDS Return. The TDS collected depends on the income that an individual is drawing, age of the employee, interest incurred etc and it can be collected on an annual, monthly or biannual basis.

TDS Rate on Salary

The employer has authority to file TDS on the employee's behalf. TDS can be deducted from the salary only at the time the employee is receiving their salary. However, if the annual income that an individual is earning comes below the minimum taxable income slab, TDS will not be deducted from your income. The TDS rate varies from 5-30%

The chart below shows TDS amount applicable on any amount of payment:
