However, Budget 2019 inserted the seventh proviso to Section 139(1). As per this new provision, if a taxpayer has entered into high-value transactions, it is mandatory to file the ITR even if the total income does not exceed the basic exemption limit. The high-value transactions can be either of the following:

  1. If the taxpayer has deposited more than INR 1 Cr in a current account
  2. If the taxpayer has incurred foreign travel expense of more than INR 2 lacs

  1. Hey @TeamQuicko

    Thanks for the blog! Just one quick question - Why do we have to report a quarterly breakdown of Dividend Income under IFOS?

    Thank you!

  2. I had received dividend recently but I had noticed that TDS had been deducted. any idea as to why has it happened and is there a way I can claim this TDS?

  3. Hey @HarshitShah

    After the introduction of Budget 2020, dividend income is now taxable in the hands of the shareholder; and is also subject to TDS at 10% in excess of INR 5000 u/s 194 & 194K. Foreign Dividend is taxable at slab rates. TDS is not applicable to such dividends. The taxpayer should report such income under the head IFOS in the ITR filed on the Income Tax Website.

    Hope this helps!
