New Delhi: The government has extended the due date of filing tax deducted at source (TDS) returns under GST laws for the October-December period till January 31, 2019.

The TDS provisions under the goods and services tax (GST) were brought into effect from October 1, 2018.

According to the Central GST (CGST) Act, the notified entities are required to collect TDS at 1% on payments to goods or services suppliers in excess of 2.5 lakh. Also, states levy 1% TDS under state laws.

The finance ministry, through a notification, extended the due date for filing TDS returns under GST for the October-December 2018 period, till January 31, 2019.

PwC India partner and leader (indirect tax) Pratik Jain said issues were being faced on GST portal regarding acceptance of tax deducted by the deductor for claiming credit/ benefit by the deductee and generation of TDS certificates.

“Even after following the steps, TDS certificates were not getting generated in certain cases, leading to disputes between deductor and deductee,” Jain said.

He said the government should consider all such challenges and make necessary changes on the GST portal.
