What is TDS in Income Tax?
Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is a specific amount that is deducted when a certain payment like salary, commission, rent, interest, professional fees, etc. is made. The person who makes the payment deducts tax at the source, while the person who receives a payment/income has the liability to pay tax. It lowers tax evasion because the tax will be collected at the time of making a payment.
