What is TDS?
If someone has any income, then after deducting tax from that income, if the remaining amount is given to the person, then the amount deducted as tax is called TDS. The government collects tax through TDS. It is deducted on different types of income sources like salary, interest or commission received on any investment etc. The onus of paying TDS is on the person or entity (company) making the payment. If the TDS deducted from your salary is more than your total tax liability, then it is refunded through ITR Filing.

What is TCS?
TCS is tax collected at source. It means tax collected at source (tax collected from income). This tax is imposed on the transaction of certain types of goods. Like liquor, tendu leaf, timber, scrap, minerals etc. While taking the price of the goods, tax money is also added to it and deposited with the government. After collecting it, the work of depositing it is done by the seller or the shopkeeper only. This is controlled in section 206C of the Income Tax Act.
