Earlier this month, the Income Tax Department of India created a new provision for filing E-TDS online without the need of a Facilitation Centre.
Mentioned below is the procedure for doing the same:
Step 1: Registration on Traces Website
1.Go to the website - https://www.tdscpc.gov.in/app/login.xhtml
2.Click on ‘Register as New User’ and select ‘Deductor’ and ‘Proceed’ by filling the required fields and get registered.
Note: Use a challan which has multiple PAN in deductee records. Please don’t repeat PAN in deductee details.
Step 2: Login to Traces Website and register under “Register at E-Filing Site”
Step 3: Login to Income Tax Portal (http://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/)
1.Register the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) of Deductor’s authorized person (Partner, Director etc).
2.At the instance this is not done, you have to verify the return via a Demate Account or Online Banking or Aadhar OTP respectively.
3.With the help of TDS returns preparations software or utility generated FVU file, create ZIP folder of the FVU file.
Upload the file in TDS option within the Income Tax E-Filing portal (presently last option in TAB) and ‘save’ the acknowledgement receipt.
