Also, it is to be noted that when the request is raised without using digital signature, the system cannot establish the identity of the person involved. Therefore, in such a case it is forwarded to the TDS AOs (along with the documents uploaded by the deductor at the time of raising the request) for verification and approval/rejection. Hence, TDS AOs should pay due diligence in verification of the facts of the case and the genuineness of the persons involved before approving the ticket, especially when change in ownership or amount is involved. TDS AO may like to ask for the Identity Proof and PAN Card of buyer along with the documents related to Transfer of Properly and the proofs of payment made to verify the Amount of Property, Date of Payment, Property Details etc.

Q 2. How can these defaults be resolved? Is online correction facility for form 26QB available now?

Ans: For the resolution of these defaults, the buyer needs to use the “demand payment” link on the TIN portal through URL- https://onlineservices.tin.egovnsdl.com/etaxnew/tdsnontds.jsp. For further detailed procedure of demand payment the buyer/deductor may refer to Question No.3.

However, if the buyer/deductor finds that the default has arisen due to wrong data entry in his 26QB statement, then the functionality for online correction of Form 26QB is now available to the deductors (buyers). For that the buyer can log in to www.tdscpc.gov.in and make the online correction request in the respective fields.

Q3. Is there any approval required for online correction of 26QB statement? If yes, the details thereof ?

Ans: If the buyer makes correction using Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), then there is no need of TDS assessing officer (AO)’s approval for making correction in any field of 26QB form. But, if the buyer doesn’t make correction using Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), then following fields in 26QB online correction require approval of their TAN assessing officer (AO):

1. PAN of Buyer Details
2. PAN of Seller Details
3. Amount Paid/Credited – Amount payable to the Transferor/Seller
4. Date of Payment/Credit (Date of Payment to the Transferor/Seller). Note that the buyer will have to change the Financial Year as well if the changed Date of Payment/Credit lies outside the earlier financial year.
5. Date of Tax Deduction

If the buyer wants to change the PAN of buyer but doesn’t make correction using DSC, then after the successful submission of correction request, an approval request will be automatically sent simultaneously to both, PAN of Seller and Updated PAN of Buyer and status will be shown as “Pending for PAN approval” in the inbox of buyer. After getting their approval, an approval request will be automatically sent to the TDS assessing officer and status will be shown as “Pending for AO approval” in the inbox of the buyer. However, if the same request is made using DSC then AO approval will not be required and only approval from PAN of Seller and Updated PAN of Buyer will be required.

If the buyer wants to change the PAN of seller but doesn’t make correction using DSC, then after the successful submission of correction request, an approval request will be automatically sent to the PAN of previous Seller and status will be shown as “Pending for PAN approval” in the inbox of buyer. After getting the approval of previous seller, an approval request will be automatically sent to the TDS assessing officer and status will be shown as “Pending for AO approval” in the inbox of the buyer. However, if the same request is made using DSC, then AO approval will not be required and only approval from PAN of previous Seller will be required.

NOTE: In all the cases where approval by AO is required, the dcductor will be prompted to approach the TDS assessing officer with hard copy of the correction request. The dcductor/buyer should carry his Identity Proof & PAN Card along with the documents related to Transfer of Property and the proofs of payment made, for verification at the end of Assessing officer.

Q.4 Is the intimation letter and justification report sent by CPC -TDS password protected? If yes, what is the password to open the same?

Ans: Yes, the attached document containing the intimation letter and justification report sent by CPC -TDS is password protected. To open the PDF, enter the first four characters of your PAN in capital letters, followed by an underscore (_) and date of payment/credit in the format DDMMYYYY. For e.g., if your PAN is ABCD12345E and date of payment/Credit as regular statement is 30-Sep-2012, enter password as ‘ABCD_30092012’
