Claiming tds refund

Hello,

I did some freelance work for a company. The company deducted 10% TDS for the services and remitted the rest of the payment. The company is now submitting their monthly service tax returns. For this they are suggesting that I submit my father's PAN number instead of mine for the TDS receipt/statement. They say that since my father is retired now, I can show the income in his name which will fall below the taxable income ceiling and hence can claim TDS refund when I file for the returns through him.

Is this a legal and ethical way to claim tax refund?

Dear Sir,

Strictly speaking, this is not a legal way to do it. Unfortunately, people use this trick to save taxes unethically.

Please feel free to call/ revert in case of any doubts.

Hello SIr,

You can claim the TDS deducted on your income and in the second case where a person is paying you your fees, you can offer the whole part as income and pay the due taxes while filing your return.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to call back/ get back in case of further clarifications. 

Thanking You.
