    1. Its an income. So you have to pay income tax for sure.

      It will be considered as your income if you deposit it in your account.

    Hi I am a salaried person and I borrowed around 6.5lakhs from my friends to buy house. I need to deposit now. Will it be questioned and taxable

    1. It will get taxable as only upto Rs 50k is tax exempt !

    Hi I am having 1.5lakh in my saving account and I want to deposit 2lakh in my account . Do I need to pay any Tex for that amount.
    And what amount I can keep in my saving account without paying any tax.

    1. If its the post tax money, then there is no tax again as its already taxed, but if its other income and you fall into tax bracket, then YES, you need to pay tax !

    I am currently an employee of certain transport company who handles payments to drivers , advances etc
    my income is under 2.5 lakhs and i dont file tax as i dont come under slab
    but recently due to demonetisation , my company no longer can give cash for our operations as theres a limit daily
    so my company decided to transfer same money to my online personal savings account and i make payments to revelant people through online channel
    So the doubt is the amount i receive for this purpose is gonna exceed 70+ lakhs per year
    will there be any problem due to this from Tax department

    Hi Deepak,
    Probably it may be a good idea to approach this forum on tax planning rather than tax evasion point of view.

    Any cash deposited over 50K gets reported to IT authorities. There is no limit on the amount you can deposit into your saving bank account as long as it is legal money. However, at the same time, there is provision in the Income Tax Act which makes any cash receipt beyond 50K as questionable. I won’t have exact details on it.


  8. Dear Deepak, depositing money in bank for below 50K Rs. to avoid quoting your PAN is one thing & taxation of your income is another thing.

    You are free to open as many account in as many banks as you like. Please do note, if you are opening accounts with the same banks but different branches, all these accounts can be traced easily by the CBS software of the bank in question as your PAN ‘ll be common in all these accounts.

    I do not know your exact business but my dear friend, as & when income tax people comes to your door, onus lies on you to prove the legibility of your money lying scattered in different accounts.

    To pay tax, you w’d have to report your income source.
