Taxes include interest and penalty also, but we will discuss about taxes paid by the assesse or taxes deducted from the income of the assesse alone.

There are popularly three types of taxes we have:

·         Tax Deducted at Source: When the person responsible to pay any income to the any other person, and when the person who is responsible to pay the income, pays the income after deducting the tax thereon, such tax deducted will be known as Tax Deducted at source. In this, the person who is paying the income is liable to deduct TDS, and if doesn’t deduct TDS he will be liable for non deduction of TDS. The person from whose income the TDS is to be deducted is in no situation can be held responsible for the non deduction of TDS liability.

·         Advance Tax: If the tax payable by the person for the financial year exceeds Rs 10000 he is liable to pay his tax liability to pay Advance Tax.
