Income tax return (ITR) filing: Pay tax on this PF account withdrawal
The withdrawal amount of an account consists of the investment/principal portion and the interest earned on it. The taxability of the two differs based on the time of withdrawal. If the withdrawal is made before five years of continuous service, the entire contribution made by employer will be taxable and tax would be deducted if it exceeds Rs 50,000. The tax so deducted can be claimed as a credit while filing the return of income. Further, if deduction has been claimed under Section 80C while making such investment over the tenure of service, then the entire contribution will be taxed.
