It is very much clear that Income Tax Department charge Interest on all late deposit TDS/TCS. In case we have deposited interest amount on a challan no 281/e-payment. Now a following question arise that
Question :- Should we enter interest challan entry while submitting etds/etcs return ?
Answer :- "Yes". It means that entry is must in e-tds/e-tcs return even there is TDS amount is nil only Interest amount is available. Picture view of entry is also given below :-
In this way only challan entry will be made in Challan Detail and there will no entry in Annexure-1 or Annexure -2 in NSDL software.
Secondly, form 16 & 16A programme is also updated accordingly. Earlier there is problem due to this type of entry but now the same has been resolved.
