From the desk of Chairman,CBDT
S.N. 43/May 8,2011
Drive to clean up TDS database by May 20 2011 – Cooperation between CITs (TDS) &Corporate charges’ CITs
To immediately redress the grievances of tax payers who have claimed refunds, but because of the default on the part of tax Deductors, tax demands have been created, CBDT advises all the CCITs (CCA) to ensure thefollowing:
i. Where TDS Returns have been filed:
TDS Returns with very high number of mismatches have been identified by the Systems. Top 15,020 deductors account for a mismatch of Rs. 11652 cr (86% of total mismatch amount).RCC – wise details with regard to the same may be downloaded by the CITs (TDS) from ITAXNET & thereafter these TDS Returns may be got corrected;
ii. Where TDS Returns have not been filed:
CITs (TDS) to ensure thatTDS Returns are necessarily filed by non-filers against whom deductees have lodged TDS claims in their income tax returns of AY 10-11. Such lists are also available at ITAXNET & may be downloaded therefrom.
As most of the TDS mismatch is reported in the TDS returns of Corporates, all the corporate charges’ CITs are hereby advised to extend whole-hearted support &cooperation to CITs (TDS) to ensure that TDS returns, correct & complete in all respects with 100% PAN quoting, are filed by the non-filer Corporates and also incomplete TDS Returns are immediately corrected. They should have separate meetings with CEOs of Corporates in this regard.
For getting the TDS Returns immediately filed, CITs (TDS) may take the assistance of TRPs, payments to whom may be made directly by CITs (TDS).
