Foreign Income

Hello,

I was out of India from April 2015 to July 2015 and again from December 2015 to March 2016. Because of that my resident status is Non Resident in India. 

However the form 16 issued by my employer and also in form 26AS my foreign income is mentioned as Salary Earned in Netherlands. I paid tax in Netherlands on that salary and it is not taxable in India. I would like to know whether I need to enter the information about my Salary earned in Netherlands in the form and if Yes then where do I add this information so that the tax is not calculated on this income. 

Regards, 
Rajesh

Sir you can provide the details to your employer who will take care of the same in form 16. If not you can claim relief if India is having DTAA with netherland.

Dear Sir,

Since you were a Non - Resident in India then income earned abroad and received abroad is not taxable in India. As per your details even in your Form 16 it shows as income earned abroad so there is no issue as such. Hence you need not show it in your ITR.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Please feel free to call/ get back in case of any further clarifications. 

Thanking You.

Dear Sir,

if you are NRI then income earned outside India is not taxable in India. Please get form 16 rectified by your employer.

Hello Sir,

I didn't understand why did your employer fill in details of your foreign income in your Form 16. I would prefer if you can get the Form 16 rectified from your employer and even if it is not done then there are chances of you being called to show cause why the income should not be subject for Tax. Then you can prove that as you were a Non Resident in India and the income is earned and received abroad and hence not taxable in India.

But still to avoid all of this hassle, preferably get your form Form 16 rectified.

Trust this clarifies your query.
