For quite long time , the tax department was confused about the taxation of salary of non-resident Indians who went abroad either to join an employment or on deputation by the Indian company outside India. The basic reason for jumping to joy by an income tax officer on the “bright” prospect of taxing the salary earned by a non-resident Intaxworrytaxworrydian are following :
- Yea , you are non-resident during the year, but your salary was received in India
- Yea, yo were on deputation out side India and NRI , but your company paid you salary in India and deducted tax
- Yea, you are NRI and carrying employment outside India, but the foreign company pays directly to Indian bank accounts.
