intentionally employer deducting tax even after accepting proofs

  • Contents


I am working at XXX. I have resigned and my last day here is 31st Dec 2019. I have submitted PPF and HRA receipts to employer, they have approved in their internal portals and I have proof of that mail.

Now for Dec salary they have deducted huge tax not considered 80c as well as HRA.

I understand they are doing intentionally.

Whom can I approach so that I can take action against employer ?

please advice earliest. Thank you.

You can ask the concern HR person for the clarity. Otherwise you can claim these deductions while filing your Income tax return.

Don't fight with the company. It is not good. Solve the issue amicably.

Right advices given by Sh.Ganeshan Kalyani Ji. The querist can get refund on the basis of Income Tax Return for the Financial Year 2019-20. Maintain cordial relations with the company as advised by Sh.Ganeshan Kalyani Ji. Pl. note that when you apply for a job in an other company, that company will make queries about you not only from this company but also from other cos. where you have been posted prior to the present job. You will invite negative report if you have strained relations with any company where you have worked.

This is practical approach. Rest decision is yours.

Employer can have policy for submission of documents for deduction by a particular date. Therefore, if these were submitted after such cut off date, then as a policy, the operational officer of employer cannot accept and give effect to documents submitted after cutoff date. However, in case of large organization 31 January is reasonable time for such cut off date because any short fall in TDS can be covered in February and March without making substantial reduction in take home salary . Check what is cut off date fixed by your employer. If you had submitted documents belatedly, still you can request the employer to consider the same and make proper adjustment for TDS because December to March ( four months are available for adjustments of TDS). The employer has time and option to reduce your TDS for the month of December or earlier period and make necessary adjustments in TDS remittance, adjustments and returns for PYE 3103.2020. It will depend on co-operation of tax team and you can also point out this to senior officers of employer company to make policy as 'reasonable policy', This will also be a measure of employees welfare with due legal compliance. If there is employees grievances redressal committee, in employer company, you can approach such committee or write to the CMD with request to make reasonable policies for convenience of employees.
