What is a Revised TDS Return?

The individual deducting TDS is required to regularly file TDS returns with NSDL. If a deductor finds any errors or needs to make any modifications to the return, he can file an updated TDS return to update the previous return.

When must we submit our updated TDS return?

In the following circumstances, we must file amended TDS returns:

  • Incorrect PAN number on a TDS statement
  • The amount of unanticipated TDS is subtracted.
  • Unexpected usage of funds and inaccurate information received in return

Types of TDS Return Corrections

Depending on the adjustments the deductor requests be made to the ordinary return, different correction kinds apply. There are six main categories for rectification returns.

C1: Except for the TAN number, all modifications made to the deductor’s details are subject to C1 rectification. If the address, PAN number, or deductor’s name are incorrect, a C1 correction is generated.

C2: A change in deductor details or currency is subject to the C2 correction. When the challan serial number is submitted improperly, it is necessary. However, C1 correction is also a part of the C2 correction process.

C3: Any kind of correction to the deductee, challan, or deduction details falls under this category (apart from PAN number corrections). Incorrect reference to the schooling cessation when rectifying specific details. Additional information, like the referencing currency, may also be deducted.

TDS Returns

C4: Modifications to compensation details are subject to C4 modification. It is only relevant if the Form 24Q fourth quarter statement needs to be amended. If the records for Gross Salary or Total Salary are inaccurate, this modification may be made.

C5: If there is an issue with the deductee’s PAN number, C5 correction is necessary. Updates to PAN can also be made with Forms 26Q, 27Q, and 27EQ.

When preparing TDS reports, businesses and employers must deal with a large amount of information, which can lead to several mistakes. The submission of TDS returns is frequently amended. Usually, C1, C2, C3, C4, and C5 can all be updated with a single file. After filing the return, you have three days to review any modifications. To verify your TDS Return, you need to know your TAN and Receipt Number.
