Family pension received by the individual is taxable under the head 'income from other sources'.
At the time of filing your income tax return (ITR) it is important to ensure that all TDS-related details are correctly filed in the form. Consequently, questions relating to reporting of TDS in ITR often come up when filing the tax return.

It may also happen that while filling TDS details in the ITR form, you may get an error message because the details filled by you are either filled in the wrong head or schedule or you have missed out filling important details.

FAQs released by the income tax department try to resolve the problems/questions and errors usually faced by individuals while filling details in the ITR form.

Here are three common TDS-related queries answered by the income tax department:

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. The Details of TDS brought forward and TDS of current financial year should be provided in separate rows to claim TDS.
