No more CD & Pen drive. Electronic filing of statement of transactions on which tax has not been deducted to be allowed
Section 206A of the Act relates to furnishing of statement in respect of payment of certain income by way of interest to residents where no tax has been deducted at source.
At present, the section provides for filing of such statements on a floppy, diskette, magnetic tape, CD-ROM, or any other computer readable media. To enable online filing of such statements, it is proposed to substitute this section so as to provide for filing of statement (where tax has not been deducted on payment of interest to residents) in prescribed form in the prescribed manner.
It is also proposed to provide for correction of such statements for rectification of any mistake or to add, delete or update the information furnished. It is also proposed to make a consequential amendment arising out of amendment carried out by Finance Act, 2019 whereby threshold for TDS on payment of interest by a banking company or cooperative society or public company was raised to forty thousand rupees.
These amendments will take effect from 1st September, 2019.
