I was working in India and was employee in IT company till Dec 2016.In Jan 2017 i joined new company in abroad.While i was working in India i did investment to save tax under 80c. My question is do i have to file ITR for 2017-2018.In this case i will have to file only till financial year Dec 2016 or do i need to include the date for my new company working abroad.Consider current situation I am working and paying the tax as per Govt law here.
Please help on this. Please help on this and for investment can I claim back the return?
You need to first check your Residential Status.
Kindly read :
If you are Resident Indian then you need to file taxes for the whole Financial year 2016-17 (Assessment year 2017-18) and include global income as well.
In case, you file your tax return abroad for the foreign income, then you need to check if that country as ‘double taxation avoidance agreement’ , you need to pay only balance tax rate (if any) in India.
Advisable to take help of Chartered Accountant.
