    Hi Amit
    I have received my PF from my employer amounting Rs 7 lacs in this FY. Wherein i Have left the job in Jan 2013 after working arroung arround 6 years (joining date was 27 Feb 2007). My income from other sources is arround 3 lacs in this fY. What tax i have to pay,


  3. Q1..Regarding Dividend tax. If a person gets 11 lacs as dividend and since dividend above 10 lacs is taxable at the rate of 10 % ….what is the amount of tax payable :

    Is it a) (10% of 11 lacs ) OR b) 10% of 1 lac ie excess amount over 10 ?

    This part has not been added to the excel calculator.

    Q2… If the same person above in Q1 also earns say 90 lacs taxable income after all deductions excluding dividend
    Then his total income would be

    c) 90 lacs plus 11 lacs as dividend …
    so he would have to additionally pay 15% surcharge on the tax amount as his income exceeds 1 crore
    d) Exclude dividend so his income being 90 lacs hence no surcharge.
    e) Assume dividend is ( 11-10)=1 since 10 lacs is deductible and hence
    Total income is 90 + 1 = 91

    Q1 …Which one is correct ? a or b ?
    Q2.. Which is correct ? c , d or e ?
