Ques 1. I am getting family pension and tax is deducted at source under section 192. On account of this, the income details are auto-populated in salary schedule. What should I do?
Ans: Since family pension is taxable under 'income from other sources', you may edit the prepopulated value in the salary schedule and capture the pension details in the 'schedule OS'.
Ques 2. I am getting error message "Unclaimed TDS brought forward and details of TDS of current FY should be provided in different rows in Sch TDS 2" (Applicable for ITR 2,3,5,6 and 7). What should I do?
Ans: In Schedule TDS-2, the field "Financial Year in which TDS is deducted (Column 5)" is applicable only for those who are bringing forward the unclaimed TDS of the earlier years. In the field 'TDS of the current Financial Year (Column 7)' taxpayer needs to provide only TDS details pertaining to current financial year.
