    I forgot to fill return for Assessment Year 2014-15 and I got ‘ Non-Compliance’.

    I have to choose one of the option from ‘Information Relates To’ present in ‘Related Information Summary’ Tab. Could you please suggest which one to choose:

    I have:
    Information Code : TDS-192A
    Information Description : TDS Return – Salary to Employee (Section 192A)

    Thanks,
    Pratyus

    • Dear Pratyus,

      Section 192A is for TDS deduction by the employer.In your case it seems that you have got notice because TDS is deducted and you have not filed notice. It is possible in the case where you have spend more amount like Paid Rs 2 lac or above against credit card. In Information Related to tab you can select I need more information and ask for more information.
