Can employer deduct TDS of an employee, even if the employee salary is not taxable ? Will there be any implications on employer for this ?

HI,

No, you cannot deduct TDS from an employee if her/his salary doesn’t come under TDS bracket.

If you have any valid reason for doing so , please let me know accordingly can help you.

Hi,

Employer should ask for Investment Declaration at the start of Financial Year (April/May) before doing the Tax Calculation & deduct the taxes on prorata basis

Final Tax Calculation should be done at the end of Financial Year post collection of Investment Proofs (Feb/Mar) and balance tax to be deducted in March.

There are times when Employee wants to deduct the taxes, insuch cases Employee should give in writing to employer.
