Forms 15G/15H are forms which a customer can submit to ensure that the Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is not deducted on the interest income if He/ She meets the applicable conditions. Also, the customer must have a Permanent Account Number (PAN) before claiming a Tax exemption through Form 15G/15H. ICICI Bank allows these forms to be submitted online through Internet Banking and iMobile application. Log on to www.icicibank.com for submitting.
TDS is to be deducted when the interest income earned exceeds ₹ 40,000 in a financial year for all resident assesses, except for resident senior citizens. In case of resident senior citizens, TDS is to be deducted when the interest income earned exceeds ₹50,000 in a financial year.
Form 15G/H are only a declaration that no TDS should be deducted on your interest income since the tax on your total income is nil. The interest income from deposits is always taxable.
