Addition on difference in freight charges - difference in disclosure by the assessee in its return of income vis-à-vis TDS Certificate - CIT(A) accepted assessee’s contention that this receipt was not disclosed in the return, because the exact amount was spent by the assessee and no profit was earned on this receipt - Held that:- We do not find any merit in this observation of CIT(A) insofar as even if the assessee had incurred expenditure equal to the amount of receipt, both receipt and expendi .....

after observing as under :- 2.6 A perusal of the above reveals that labour charge of ₹ 32,21,205/- and the productivity allowance of ₹ 16,50,325/- received from the above two companies, were in fact paid back.

ase law cited. The short legal issue before us is that whether the receipts shown as per the TDS certificate is the income of the assessee to be taxed wholly without any adjustments. To answer this legal question, we have examined the nature of business activity of the assessee and it was found that the assessee-company is carrying on transportation business.

Therefore, the facts have revealed that the TDS was deducted on the whole amount of freight on trucks supplied through assessee but said amount had an over-riding right of the Truck-owners therefore directly diverted to their respective accounts. On careful examination of the statutory provisions to answer this legal question, it is evident that the deduction of tax at source is not a levy of tax unless and until it is followed by an assessment order making a charge of tax. Even thi .....

An observation at this stage can be made that the provisions relating to Tax Deduction at Source are not the provisions for the computation of income. An income of a taxpayer is not required to be computed merely with reference to the TDS Certificate but assessment of an income is altogether an independent exercise. With this .....

to the trucks owners, therefore, the freight was not subject to tax in the hands of the assessee. Nevertheless, accounts of the assessee have also demonstrated the same. With the result, the amount on which the TDS was deducted had not matched with the figures of the income disclosed by the assessee in respect of those transactions. Such a business transaction can be dealt with in two ways; i.e. either to be treated as the receipts with overriding liability or secondly that the freight receipts .....

r considered opinion, the provisions of deduction of TDS have been brought in the statute to facilitate the collection of tax. It is not the intention of the legislature that the credit for a portion of TDS deducted and paid is never granted.

ounting is mercantile as reported in TAR. The wages of every month become due and payable on 7th of next months. E.g. March 2007 wages are payable to the works on 7th of April 2007 and the bill is raised on 5th to 7th of April, amount received and paid to the workers. Thus, the wages of March 2008 are due only on 7th of April 2008 and they do not become receivable and payable in March 2008.
