TDS provision when income is subject to clubbing Provisions: In whose name TDS is to be done?
There are lot many cases where the FDR is done in the name of the minor by the parents or in the name of the wife by the husband.
Income in such case is subject to the clubbing provision and the person giving the amount is liable for taxation. The person is whose name FDR is done is not liable for taxation.
However, TDS in such case may be an issue as the banker or payer may be doing TDS in the name of the person whose name is mentioned in the FDR.
Here is an Income Tax Rule No. 37BA which deals with the situation. The same is produced here-under:
Credit for tax deducted at source for the purposes of section 199.37BA.
