Configure Specified Person Higher Tax Rate (Under Section 206CCA)

Finance Bill 2021 introduced Section 206CCA of the Income Tax Act which will take effect from 1st July 2021. It is a special provision for the collection of tax at source at a higher rate for the non-filers (Specified Person) of Income Tax Return.
The tax would be collected at source at twice the rate as specified under the relevant category or at a rate of 5%, whichever is higher, in cases where any amount or sum or income is received or payable or credited from the Specified Person:

  1. who has not filed their Income Tax Return for two years immediately prior to the year in which tax is required to be collected.
  2. where the aggregate of tax collected at source in each of the two previous years is Rs 50 thousand or more.

Therefore, for FY 2021-22, the seller would have to collect the TCS at a higher rate from buyer/customer who has not filed their Income Tax Return for both the FY 2019-20 and FY 2020-21 and the aggregate of TCS is Rs 50 thousand or more during each of FY 2019-20 and FY 2020-21.

Tax collectors can verify if any party is a ‘Specified Person’ as defined in Section 206CCA by entering a valid PAN in the department’s portal. A PAN that has not been filed for the past two years and any TCS that has been collected from the party which is Rs 50 thousand or more will be found on such list. Parties whose PANs fall under the Specified Person list will be taxed at source at twice the rate as specified under the relevant category or at a rate of 5%, whichever is higher.

No PAN

If a PAN is not available for any party, TCS will be calculated using the rate specified for no PAN in the category master.

However, in some cases the tax rate may be configured as 15% with PAN, while without PAN it is 20%. As a result of doubling the 15% tax rate, the specified value becomes 30%, which is higher than 20% (tax incurred when no PAN is provided). TCS will be collected at the rate of whichever is higher, in this case, it would be 30%.
