Each method applies differently based on an individual’s tax obligations and circumstances.

The withholding technique is utilized by individuals who are required to deduct and withhold tax from certain payments they make. This includes employers deducting taxes from team member income, individuals or entities paying investment returns, and those making payments for services or contracts.

All individuals have an obligation to pay taxes in installments, usually based on estimated income and tax obligations for a specific period. Installments contribute towards fulfilling their overall tax liability.

Assessments come into play when the tax authority determines the final tax amount owed after reviewing tax returns or conducting an audit. This involves evaluating income, deductions, and other factors to arrive at the final tax obligation.
