Updated TDS/TCS Rates for FY 2020-21 and AY 2021-20

Union Finance Minister Mrs Nirmala Sitharaman, in order to provide more funds in the hands of the taxpayer during this coronavirus pandemic situation and as a part of economic relief package, has reduced the rate of Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) and Tax Collection at Source (TCS) by 25% on the payments made to non-salaried residents persons.

These rates shall come into force from 14.05.2020 and will remain effective till 31.03.2021. Further, these reduced rates are applicable to all types of payment made to the resident person except in the case of payment of salary. So, in other words, TDS on salary will be deducted on slab rates as applicable to the individual as before this reduction. However on all other types of payments, TDS will be deducted at reduced rates.
