Hi all.

I have an FD for Rs 1,50,000. The interest on this FD, being greater than Rs 10000, will attract TDS. Also, my income falls in the 20% income tax slab. So, while filling up the income tax return form, in the section “interest from other sources” if i put the interest from this FD, the form will automatically calculate the tax based on the 20% slab.

Now, to avoid this extra 10% of tax(20%-10%), how shall i proceed while filling up the income tax return form?

    Thanks Manish…. u just raised my tax liability by 10% on my interest income. 🙂

  2. But the tax you need to pay is 20% only , the TDS might be cut as 10% , then in that you need to pay extra 10% tax on FD interest again . Is this the case ?

    If TDS is cut at 30% , then you are liable to get back 10% . in which case you need to apply for refund !
