Can u please help m regarding how do I proceed with.. this money is deposited in my salary account only..
You cannot show this amount in ITR as there is no need to show the same. Further, your bank statement does not go with the return. This may need to be produced if your case gets picked up for the Assessment. However, you can explain this to tax officers that this is a loan from your friend. Conservatively, you can prepare a gift deed.
What is this gift deed and now how and when I can file as the last date for filing is closed? If I produce my form 16 is that enough for filing? On the e-mail filing site it's written bank statement is needed..
I am sorry...gift deed is applicable in the cases of gift. As it is loan you don't need to prepare gift deed. You can file belated return. Form 16 is enough for filing return of income if you have only income from salary. Bank statement is needed to see your income, it does not go with the return.
Hi, how much money you have taken from your friend. 1)if the money has been taken as loan and intention to repay that amount are there. then you can get it written stamp paper that he has given the loan to you and you will repay that amount in near future. to have a proof that it is not your income but you owe that amount from your friend. 2)only if the amount is less than Rs 50000/- then it is not taxable , it can be considered as a gift from a friend and you can have a gift deed written on a plain paper with two witnesses signing it. it does not make a difference that the amount is being transferred to your salary account, as now you are liable to give details of all your bank account. draft of gift deed: GIFT DEED KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS that I, _____________ S/o Sh.___________ r/o ____________________, transfers voluntarily, CASH OF value of which is Rs._____________ (Rupees_____________ only) to my SON/HUSBAND/SON IN LAW / Friend SRI.____________ S/o of Sh._________________ (hereinafter referred to as "the donee") To Hold the same to the donee absolutely forever. I further declare that the said gift has been made by me out of my natural love and affection for the donee and the same has been accepted by the donee. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have executed this deed this ________ day of __________. Witness: 1. DONOR 2. DONEE I, SRI. ______________, the donee hereby accept the gift. MODIFY THE FORMAT SUITABLY BY ADDING THE AMOUNT AND CHEQUE/ D D NOS'
In case of salary there is no provision to declare borrowed amount. You can file return declaring your salary income and file returns. There will not be any problem
Dear Sir, Since you are a salaried employee, you please declare your salary income in the return Form ITR1 (assuming there is no other income). we also assume that the loan transaction has been done through an account payee cheque or by any mode other than cash. If so, you don't need to disclose the loan amount in your return. if department ask for the same then you show your transaction. Regards CA. Sachin Sinha 9891315840 email@example.com
