Late Filing Fees
Failure to file your TDS returns within the maturity date will mean that you simply are going to be subject to a late filing fee of Rs.200 per day. The fee are going to be charged for each day after the maturity , until the date on which your return is filed. However, the utmost fees that you simply will had to pay are going to be limited to the TDS amount.
For instance, just in case your TDS payable amount is Rs.7,500 on May 14, and therefore the amount is paid on November 19, the entire number of days between the aforementioned dates is 190. Therefore, Rs.200 per day for 190 days are going to be Rs.38,000. However, since your TDS payable amount is Rs.7,500, your late filing fees are going to be only Rs.7,500 and not Rs.38,000. But, an interest will be charged to you.

A penalty won’t be charged under Section 271H of the tax Act just in case TDS/TCS returns aren’t filed within the maturity , as long as the subsequent conditions are applicable:
- The TDS/TCS is paid to the government’s credit.
- The filing of the TDS/TCS return is completed before the expiry of 1 year from the maturity date.
- The interest and late filing fees (if any) are paid to the government’s credit.
Interest Rate for TDS Payment
Under Section 201(1A) of the tax Act, 1961, if tax isn’t deducted at source, either partly or fully, a rate of interest of 1% per month are going to be applicable from the date on which tax was likely to be subtracted to the date on which it’s actually subtracted. In case tax has been deducted, and has not been paid either partly or fully, a rate of interest of 1.5% per month are going to be applicable from the date on which tax was deducted to the date on which it had been paid.
For instance, just in case the TDS payable amount of a private is Rs.7,500 and therefore the date on which it had been deducted is January 14, and TDS was paid on May 18, the interest owed to the single person shall be Rs.7,500 x 1.5% per month x 5 months = Rs.562.5.
