Tax Effect of TDS Rule

Experts say that the 1% TDS rule will not result in any additional tax expense in the hands of the seller as it will be adjusted against his regular annual tax liability.

However, it will certainly help the government to trace crypto transactions and any tax leakage. Also, there will be no TDS compliance on the crypto buyer if he is buying through an exchange, as in such a case TDS will be deducted by the exchange and it will reduce his TDS compliance burden,” Bohra said.
