Tax Queries - Use ITR-2 to Show Salary and Capital Gains Income

Tax Queries - Use ITR-2 to Show Salary and Capital Gains Income
Which I-T form will be used for a salaried person if there is income from capital gains. Can we efile the ITR? Checking google, I gathered I should file ITR 2. But on choosing e-filing option, it shows ITR 1 and ITR 4. --HARSH An assessee having income under the heads income from salary and capital gains is required to file his return of income in ITR-2 for AY 2017-18. You will be required to prepare your return of income offline using ITR-2 utility (JavaExcel) available on the eFiling portal of income-tax department; generate xml file and upload it. Only the ITR 1 and 4 can be prepared and submitted online.

I retired from a PSU on November 30, 2015, and final settlement of my dues was done in May 2017. I have received a tax notice on July 24, 2017, asking about deductions claimed under section 80C, 80D, 80GG and 80TTA. If I do not reply and upload necessary documents in support of my claims, the amount will be taxed. For FY16-17, I have given details of tuition fees and NSC (80C), rent (80GG), mediclaim (80D) and savings from saving bank ac (80TTA). How do I upload the documents? According to the department. I should choose the e-assessmentproceeding menu but it says “No Record Found“. What should I do? --SWARUP DAS

The notice dated July 24, 2017, apparently related to AY 2016-17. You have submitted the details for FY 2016-17 ie.relevant to AY 2017-18. As a part of egovernance initiative to facilitate conduct of assessment proceedings electronically, the income-tax department has launched the “e-proceeding“ facility wherein assessee will be able to submit the response along with the attachments by uploading the same on the e-filing por tal. However, in cases where the assessee has received the notice asking him to elec tronically file the response, the e-proceedings menu is not activated on the e-filing portal, it is advisable that the assessee shall approach the assessing officer with the response and the supporting documents for AY 2016-17 to avoid non-compliance on the date of hearing. The assessee may also electronically file his response once the e-proceedings menu is activated.

Shrinking footprints of foreign banks in India

Shrinking footprints of foreign banks in India Foreign banks are increasingly shrinking their presence in India and are also becoming more conservative than private and public sector counterparts. While many of them have sold some of their businesses in India as part of their global strategy, some are trying to keep their core expertise intact. Others are branching out to newer areas to continue business momentum.For example, HSBC and Barclays Bank in India have got out of the retail business, whereas corporate-focused Standard Chartered Bank is now trying to increase its focus on retail “Building a retail franchise is a huge exercise and takes a long time. You cannot afford to lose it,” said Shashank Joshi, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ’s India head.According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data, foreign banks’ combined loan book shrunk nearly 10 per cent from Rs 3.78 trillion in fiscal 2015-16 to Rs 3.42 trillion last financial year. The banking industry, which includes foreign banks…

New money laundering norms stump jewellery sector

New money laundering norms stump jewellery sector Dealers with turnover of Rs 2 crore and above covered; industry says threshold too low The central government has notified the money laundering rules for the gems and jewellery sector with immediate effect. Now, any entity deals in precious metals, precious stones, or other high-value goods and has a turnover of Rs 2 crore or more in a financial year will be covered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA, 2002). The limit of Rs 2 crore would be calculated on the basis of the previous year’s turnover, said the notification. The directorate general of goods and service tax intelligence has been appointed under the Act. Sources said the government’s move to apply the PMLA to the jewellery sector was a fallout of income-tax raids on jewellers soon after demonetisation last November, when it was found that they sold gold and jewellery at a huge premium and accepted old currency notes as payment. The notification, issued on Augus…

Confusion over branded food GST

Confusion over branded food GST The GST Council's statement over the weekend on applying tax on branded food items has left most of the trade confused.

Even though the Council has not changed the rates on food -0 per cent on unbranded stuff and 5 per cent on brands -many small traders who didn't levy GST earlier said they could come under the 5 per cent slab after the clarification.

While they predicted some increase in consumer prices, large players said they can absorb GST in many ways and keep prices steady.

"Trade is confused and hence on behalf of our chamber, we have asked our members to go ahead and charge 5 per cent GST," said Sushil Sureka, general secretary of the Ahilya Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Indore.

The statement clarifying the application of GST came after some businesses were found deregistering their brands and selling under corporate brand name without paying tax, after the Council exempted unbranded food from the new all-encompassing indirec…
