I am a non-resident. Should I file my tax returns in India?
You need to file your income tax returns if:
« Your total income earned in India exceeds the basic exemption limit.
« You have a refund.
« You want the benefit of carrying forward of losses or want to set off your gains.
« You have any taxable long term capital gains or certain short term capital gains on sale of investment or assets irrespective of the gain amount.
Physical presence in India is not compulsory for filing returns. You can now e-verify your ITR from anywhere and we provide a detailed guidance for this. You can send the signed copy of ITR-V to the CPC Income Tax Department, Bengaluru. H&R Block offers support in this process as well.
Yes, you can get the benefit of basic exemption limit even being a non-resident. But if the income consists of only short term capital gains taxed at a special rate or long term capital gains then benefit of basic exemption limit is not available in respect of such gains.
