Limited Time to issue form 16A (TDS Certificate)


Issue form 16A in Prescribed Period

Issue of Form 16a is a part of duty of Deductor. We should not think that form 16A will be issued as and when we receive request from deductee, As per income tax , deductor should issue form 16a with in a month from the end of each month in which deduction has been made. Some example is given as under :-

if Deductor deducts TDS in the following dates :-
  1. 10 th April,2009
  2. 30 th June, 2009
  3. 1 st July, 2009

In above case form 16A should be issued upto :-
  1. 31 st May,2009
  2. 31 st July,2009
  3. 31 st August,2009
Issue of form 16A on Annual Basis.
On the request of deductee, form 16A can be issued on annual basis. But written request is mandatory before deducting first tds from his payment in the Financial Year.

Penalty for Non-issue or Late issue of Form 16A
If deductor do not issue or late issue form 16a, then as per Income Tax Act, Penalty of Rs. 100/- per day for Late Period can be imposed. Therefore, to avoid any complication or penalty we should issue form 16A in time.
