Staff get notice as Jet failed to deposit TDS

Mumbai: A number of Jet Airways employees have been receiving notices from the income-tax department since the past one week for unpaid tax and penalty that range from 10,000 to over 4 lakh.
For employees, like engineers, pilots and general managers, the notices pertain to unpaid income tax on account of December 2018 salary, while for the rest of the staffers, it is for salaries earned between December 2018 and February 2019.
Though Jet Airways shut down in mid-April, it has not paid its pilots and engineers salaries from January onwards and other employees haven't been paid for March and April.
"Most of us have been jobless for the past six months. Our families have been facing financial hardships. The last salary I received was for December, almost a year ago. Though I received a tax-deducted salary, the government wants me to pay tax again on that salary, along with a penalty. This has to be done within 30 days of receipt of the I-T notice. It's stressful," said a Jet Airways employee, requesting anonymity.
The 12-page notices, issued under Section 143 (1) of the I-T Act, lists details of preliminary assessment carried out by the I-T department for income earned, tax paid and returns filed by the assesses.
