• Tax on RSU listed in US stock exchange

Last year I have received 100 RSU's from my company listed in US. I have some RSU's which are vesting this year. Already tax has been deducted on these RSU's as it is seen in my pay slip. Now when i sell my RSU how much more tax will be deducted. Basically need a clear understanding on income tax on RSU's listed outside india

Hello Sir,

As far as i have understood your query, withholding tax is already deducted in USA which is correct. Now when you sell these shares then the quantum of profit which you make by selling these shares post vesting would be liable for tax.
