Do NRIs Have to Pay Advance Tax?
NRI needs to pay advance tax only in the situation where the tax liability of an individual exceeds Rs. 10000 in a particular financial year. In case you don’t pay your advance tax, Interest under Section 234B and Section 234C is applicable.
Interest under section 234B
Interest under section 234B is applicable either in one of the situations listed below -
- If your tax liability after deducting TDS exceeds Rs.10000 in a particular financial year and you failed to pay your advance tax.
- If the advance tax paid is less than 90% of the calculated tax.
Interest is calculated @ 1% of Assessed Tax after deducting the advance tax. Part of a month is rounded off to a full month as well as the amount on which interest is calculated is also rounded off in such a way that any fraction of a hundred is ignored.
Interest under section 234C
The interest on late payment of tax is 1% of the tax amount due. It is calculated from the specified cut off dates till the date of actual payment of outstanding taxes.
