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.

RBI minutes show MPC members flagged upside risks to inflation

RBI minutes show MPC members flagged upside risks to inflation Concerns about economic growth and easing inflation prompted five of the six monetary policy committee (MPC) members to call for a cut in the repo rate, but most warned that prices could start accelerating, show the minutes of the panel’s last meeting, released on Wednesday. The comments reflected a tone of caution and flagged upside risks to inflation from farm loan waivers, rise in food prices, especially vegetables, price revisions withheld ahead of the goods and services tax, implementation of house rent allowance under the 7th pay commission and fading of favourable base effect, among others. On 2 August, the panel chose to cut the repurchase rate—the rate at which the central bank infuses liquidity in the banking system—by 25 basis points to 6%. One basis point is one-hundredth of a percentage point. Pami Dua, professor at the Delhi School of Economics, wrote that her analysis showed “a fading economic growth outlook, as …

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…

Differential Tax Levy under GST: Food Firms May De-Register Trademarks

Differential Tax Levy under GST:Food Firms May De-Register Trademarks The government’s decision to charge an enhanced tax rate on trademark food brands is leading several rice, wheat and cereal manufacturers to consider de-registering their product trademarks. Irked by the June 28 central government notification fixing a 5 per cent goods and services tax (GST) rate on food items packaged in unit containers and bearing registered brand names, the industry has made several representations to the government to reconsider the differential tax levy, which these players say is creating an unlevel playing field within these highly-competitive and low-margin industries. Sources say that the move has affected the packaged rice industry the hardest and allowed the un-registered market leaders, India Gate and Daawat, to gain advantage as compared to other registered brands such as Kohinoor and Lal Qilla. Smaller players are even more worried with this enhanced rate of tax (against the otherwise …
