    • What to do if we get an income tax notice

      It looks like for AY: 14-15 and 15-16, one of my relative who happens to be a senior citizen has received an income tax notice for not clearly declaring the equity shares purchase and sales. It looks like he might have missed entries for this. What would be the next steps for him please advise.

    • Double taxation query- India and USA CGT

      My Sister in law booked a property in her name in Delhi. She had moved to USA by the time it got allotted many years ago and didn’t want it anymore. I paid the builder and took over possession whilst keeping her name on the deed. Since then I too have moved to the UK. We now want to sell the property and pay local capital gains tax in India and repatriate the monies. However, the payment can only be made in her account as she is still the legal owner. She doesn’t have an Indian account and will need to open a new account. Question on I have is-if she opens a NRO account and pays the NRI tax on property sale would she still have to pay the US tax? As she never made any payment towards the property, effectively, I will have to bear the cost of any taxation. Trying to find an effective way. Many thanks.

    • Re-investing Sale proceeds of Property (bought 2009, sold 20

      The query is with ref. to the Long Term Capital Gains on a property; a residential property purchased in 2009 in the name of my wife for an amount ~ 13 lacs and sold in 2017 for an amount ~38 lacs. The indexed cost of acquisition comes close to 19 lacs. The LTCG thus is 19 lacs.
      However, she spent all sale proceeds to buy a residential property in the name of her Sr. Citizen inlaws (my parents). This new property was bought for 80+ lacs. Does the original LTCG of 19 lacs qualify for exemption (when new property bought in the name of ageing parents / inlaws) or will it still be considered as LTCG to be paid for?

    • Tax liability on long term capital gains

      I am a salaried individual in 30% IT bracket. In year 2008 I made a agreement with a builder to purchase a under construction flat for 14,50,000. Upto Jan 2010 I paid 6,45,00/-. The builder failed to complete the project and I approached consumer court. The consumer court gave verdict that the builder shall pay back the amount along with 9% interest. I got 12,00,000/- recently as per the court verdict. Please advice me regarding the tax liability.

    • Are my taxes owed on cryptocurrency gains too low? Only 4% o

      I have filed my taxes and the profit I made from daytrading cryptocurrency is only 4% according to TurboTax. I was expecting my profits to be taxed by 15%. I received a 1099-k from the online exchange that I use to trade, but they only included the gross dollar volume traded and the number of trades I made. They didn’t include my initial cash deposits or profit/loss from trading in 2017. I know my profit from the 2017 trading year. I followed the instructions from Turbotax’s site to enter the gains as income from realty/royatlies since the government considers cryptocurrencies property. When I saw the amount owed was only about 4% of my profits I tried to enter it as capital gains from stocks/bonds to see if there would be a difference in the amount owed. It gave me the same number, about 4% of the total of my profits. I am a U.S. citizen, but I have lived and worked in China for the past five years. I pay income tax to the Chinese government, so I apply for Foreign Earned Income Exclusion every year. My income was about $16500 this year. Is this the reason my capital gains are being taxed at a lower rate? Or have I done something wrong?
