What is the TDS policy?

From 1 April'23, the Income Tax department introduced a new TDS section, 194BA, for Winnings from online games.

The net winnings are calculated when you place a request for withdrawal (or on the closing balance at year-end). TDS is calculated at 30% of the net winnings comprising the Withdrawal/Closing Balance at year-end.

Key points:

  1. TDS will be deducted at the time of withdrawal
  2. TDS will be applicable only on net winnings during withdrawals and not deposits
  3. Your deposit and withdrawal ledger will become 0 at 00:00 hours on 1st April of every financial year (FY)
  4. Net winnings = [Total withdrawals in FY - (Total deposits in FY + Net winnings which have incurred TDS during the FY + Opening balance)]

How is TDS calculated on Taj Rummy?

The TDS will be deducted at the time of withdrawal and the year's end. The Financial Year (FY) is from 1st April to 31st March every year. Your deposit and withdrawal ledger will become 0 at 00:00 hours on the 1st of April of every financial year. Net winnings = [Total withdrawals in FY - (Total deposits in FY + Net winnings which have incurred TDS during the FY + Opening balance as of 1st April 00:00 hours)]. If your net winnings at the time of making a withdrawal are positive (greater than 0), 30% TDS will be applicable on any withdrawn amount.

Let us understand with a few examples:

Scenario 1

On 1st April, you have Rs. 7,000 in your winnings balance and Rs. 8,000 in your deposit balance. Now you want to withdraw Rs. 7,000 on 3rd April. In such a situation, no TDS will be applied. The calculation will be as follows:

Total withdrawals in FY Rs. 7,000
Total deposits in FY Rs. 0
Opening deposit balance Rs. 8,000
Net winnings Rs. 7,000 - Rs. 8,000 = Rs. -1,000
Net winnings that have incurred TDS in FY Rs. 0
TDS @ 30% on net winnings Rs. 0

Scenario 2

Now, consider that you deposit Rs. 3,000 in the current FY. Your opening deposit balance was Rs. 8,000, and you have already withdrawn Rs. 7,000. Now you want to withdraw Rs. 5,000 more. The calculation will be as follows:

Total withdrawals in FY Rs. 7,000 + Rs. 5,000 = Rs. 12,000
Total deposits in FY Rs. 3,000
Opening deposit balance Rs. 8,000
Net winnings Rs. 12,000 – (Rs. 8,000 + Rs. 3,000) = Rs. 1,000
Net winnings that have incurred TDS in FY Rs. 0
TDS @ 30% on net winnings Rs. 300

In the above case, you could have withdrawn Rs. 4,000 without tax instead of Rs. 5,000. However, since you are withdrawing Rs. 5,000, Rs. 300 will be deducted from the remaining Rs. 1,000, and you will receive Rs. 4,700 in your bank account.

Scenario 3

If TDS has been applied to your previous withdrawals, then no TDS is applicable on withdrawals till your net winnings exceed the amount for which you have already paid TDS.

Total withdrawals in FY Rs. 20,000
Total deposits in FY Rs. 6,000
Opening deposit balance Rs. 8,000
Net winnings Rs. 20,000 – (Rs. 8,000 + Rs. 6,000) = Rs. 6,000
Net winnings that have incurred TDS in FY Rs. 6,000
TDS @ 30% on net winnings Rs. 0

If you try to withdraw Rs. 5,500, no TDS will be deducted. You can withdraw up to Rs. 6,000 without any TDS.

However, if you wish to withdraw Rs. 10,000, TDS will be charged on the remaining Rs. 4,000 @ 30%, which is Rs. 1,200. Post this, you will receive Rs. 8,800 in your bank account.

What happens if extra TDS has been deducted in advance during an FY?

The new amendment in TDS on gaming platforms has actually simplified the process. The computation is processed the same as any income tax, except that the TDS levied on winnings from online gaming is 30 percent.

As players will be paying TDS on withdrawals throughout the year and the final TDS for the financial year will be assessed at 23:59 on 31st March, depending on the total amount remaining in the players’ accounts, some further deduction may need to be made minus the deposit amounts.

If any excess TDS has been deducted, then players may need to file an ITR request for Claims, and the total TDS deducted can be adjusted against the winnings liable for tax plus deposits.

Will Taj Rummy provide the TDS Certificate?

As required by income tax laws, all winnings are required to be reported by players under the heading of ‘Income from other sources’ while filing their income tax returns (ITR) for the financial year.

We deduct TDS during the withdrawal process (through the year or at the end of the year) and deposit it with the government. For this reason, players are required to provide their PAN Card and the linked Aadhar Card. The TDS deduction details can be seen in every player’s individual 26AS on the IT website, which is updated quarterly.

How to Play Online Rummy Games

If you have never played online rummy, then here are some easy-to-follow rules that will give you a quick primer:

  1. Rummy is played with two decks of 52 cards each, with two Jokers included in each deck, for a total of 104 cards.
  2. A deck is divided into four ranks or suits: spade, diamond, club, and heart. You will be dealt with a hand of 13 cards, which you must arrange into combinations of valid sequences and sets. The aim is to be the first to create one pure sequence, while the rest can be created using a printed joker and the declared wild card.
  3. The highest value set is of 3 Aces, which could potentially be a game-winner. A sequence made up of a minimum of 3 cards consists of unbroken number cards from 2 to 10; a high-value sequence consists of a jack, queen, king, and possibly Ace.
