## 6 Steps for Deduction of TDS on Salary Calculation in Excel

TDS, or Tax Deducted at Source, is an amount deducted when a specific payment is made, such as a wage, commission, lease, interest, professional fees, and so on. The person making the payment deducts tax at the source, whereas the individual receiving the payment/income must pay the tax. It reduces tax fraud because the taxes are collected at the moment of payment.
Here, I will explain the process of TDS deduction on salary calculation in Excel. For simplicity, I have divided the process into 6 easy steps.
Please note that the detailed breakdown of the allowances and deduced amounts are absent here because it varies from country to country.

### Step 1: Calculate Yearly Salary

Let’s assume that the monthly salary of a person is Rs 70,000. Now, I will calculate the annual salary.

• To do so, first, go to C8 and write down the following formula
`=C7*12` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. Read More: How to Calculate Basic Salary in Excel (3 Common Cases)

### Step 2: Measure Total Taxable Income from Salary

The next step is to calculate the total taxable income from the salary.
Let’s assume that, other taxable income is Rs 10,000, and the deduction is Rs. 2000. • Now, go to C11 and write down the following formula
`=C8+C9-C10` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. ### Step 3: Calculate Tax on Taxable Income

The next step is to calculate the tax on the taxable income. The tax is calculated based on different slabs.

To calculate it,

• Go to C12 and write down the following formula
`=IF(C6<60,IF(C11>1000000,(((C11-1000000)*0.3)+112500),IF(C11>500000,(((C11-500000)*0.2)+12500),IF(C11>250000,(C11-250000)*0.05,0))),IF(C6>79,IF(C11>1000000,(((C11-1000000)*0.3)+110000),IF(C11>500000,(((C11-500000)*0.2)+0),0)),IF(C11>1000000,(((C11-1000000)*0.3)+110000),IF(C11>500000,(((C11-500000)*0.2)+10000),IF(C11>300000,(C11-300000)*0.05,0)))))` Formula Explanation

• The 1st logical test is C6<60 which is TRUE.
• So the corresponding output is IF(C11>1000000,(((C11-1000000)*0.3)+112500),IF(C11>500000,(((C11-500000)*0.2)+12500),IF(C11>250000,(C11-250000)*0.05,0)))
• The value of this output is 82100.
• Then, press ENTER to get the output. ### Step 4: Measure Education Cess

The next step is to measure the education cess. The assumption is that the education cess is 2% of the tax on total taxable income.

To calculate it,

• Go to C13 and write down the following formula
`=C12*2%` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. ### Step 5: Calculate Tax Liability for Year

The next step is to calculate the yearly tax liability. For this step, I will use the SUM function. To calculate it,

• Go to C14 and write down the formula
`=SUM(C12:C13)` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. ### Step 6: Measure Monthly TDS

The final step is to calculate the monthly TDS. To calculate it,

• Go to C15 and write down the following formula
`=C14/12` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. ## Things to Remember

• The tax is calculated based on different slabs.
• The breakdown of the allowances and deductions varies according to the different sections.
