Clarification from CBDT on Online Direct-Tax payment

Regarding e-Payment of taxes, there were several confusions in the tax payers and there were no major responses from CDBT. Now department has issued a major circular clarifying few doubts. The summary is as under.

With a view to facilitating electronic payment of taxes by different categories of taxpayers,CBDT has clarified that, -

  1. An assessee can make electronic payment of taxes also from the account of any other person. However, the challan for making such payment must clearly indicate the Permanent Account Number (PAN) of the assessee on whose behalf the payment is made. It is not necessary for the assessee to make payment of taxes from his own account in an authorized bank.
  2. Further, it is also clarified that payment of any amount by a deductor by way of tax deducted at source (TDS) or tax collected at source (TCS) shall fall within the meaning of ‘tax’ for the purpose of the rule 125 of the Income-tax Rules, 1962.

The copy of circular on e-payment clarification [Circular No.5 /2008] is avialable here.
