How to fill Form 12BB?

All salaried taxpayers are required to complete Form 12BB. This form must be submitted to their employer at the start of each financial year to facilitate accurate Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) deductions. Form 12BB serves as a declaration of all tax-saving investments made by the employee during the relevant financial year. By disclosing these investments, employees ensure that their TDS deductions are calculated correctly in line with their eligible tax-saving investments.

Who needs to Fill Form 12BB?

Since 1st June 2016, it’s mandatory for every salaried taxpayer to submit Form 12BB. Along with the form, you need to provide proofs/evidence supporting your investments. This helps in reducing your taxable income and ensures accurate TDS deduction by your employer from your salary.

However, if you fail to file Form 12BB, your employer might deduct excess TDS from your salary. Don’t worry though, you can claim back this excess TDS while filing your Income Tax returns. It’s important to ensure timely submission of Form 12BB to avoid unnecessary deductions and streamline your tax obligations.
