Non-Applicability Of Tds Provisions On Payments Made To Corporations Whose Income Is Exempt Under Section 10(26bbb) [Circular No.7/2015, Dated 23-04-2015]

Written by KnowYourGST Team under GST

The CBDT had earlier issued Circular No.4/2002 dated 16.07.2002 which laid down that there would be no requirement for tax deduction at source in respect of payments made to such entities, whose income is unconditionally exempt under section 10 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 and who are statutorily not required to file return of income as per the section 139. The said Circular also lists the entities which are unconditionally exempt under section 10 and who are statutorily not required to file return of income as per section 139.

Subsequently, section 10(26BBB) was inserted in the Income-tax Act, 1961 vide Finance Act, 2003 w.e.f. 1.4.2004 to provide that any income of a corporation established by a Central, State or Provincial Act for the welfare and economic upliftment of ex-service-men being the citizens of India does not form part of the total income. The corporations covered under section 10(26BBB) are also statutorily not required to file return of income as per the section 139.

The corporations covered under section 10(26BBB) satisfy the two conditions of Circular No. 4/2002 i.e., such corporations are statutorily not required to file return of income as per section 139 and their income is also unconditionally exempt under section 10 of the Income-tax Act, 1961. Accordingly, the CBDT has examined the matter and extended the benefit of the said Circular to such corporations whose income is exempt under section 10(26BBB). Hence, there would be no requirement for tax deduction at source from the payments made to such corporations, since their income is anyway exempt under the Income-tax Act, 1961.
