The tax deducted from the total payment amount goes to the government for various types of activities such as infrastructure development, defence, development, etc. Depending on the type of service, a certain type of tax (TDS) is levied that the payee is expected to deduct. If the individual has deducted more than the required tax amount, he/she will be eligible for a TDS Refund. The individual will require filing their TDS Return in order to receive the refund amount. TDS can be collected on a regular, periodic, or occasional basis, it is applicable to salary, interest, commission, fee, etc.
