Tax credit available on the TDS on cash withdrawn
An important thing which must be kept in mind that tax so deducted under section 194N shall not be treated as income of the person withdrawing cash. The Finance (No. 2) Act, 2019 has amended section 198 to provide that sum deducted under section 194N shall not be deemed as income. However, tax so deducted on cash withdrawal can be claimed as credit at the time of filing of ITR.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in a notification dated September 27, 2019 has allowed the bank account holder (i.e., the individual in whose name the bank account is held) to get tax credit on the TDS but only for the financial year in which it has been cut.
