I propose to gift a sum of Rs 20,00,000/- (Rupees twenty lakh) to my wife in the Financial Year 2107-2018. She will invest this money in a FD in her exclusive bank account where I am not a joint account holder. My wife is filing her own Income Tax Return even though she is not working and earning.Her source of income is gifts only.Please clarify the following:- 1. Will her earnings on the gift amount be charged to me for income tax . 2. If I will be charged for the income she earns on the gift,will it be charged to me for income tax for Financial Year 2017-2018 only or for all times to come.2 replies 2 helpful answers Last Updated: 7 months ago
