    Hi,

    I would like to know if an NRI who has no tax liabilities in India and who has never been assessed for tax in India and does not have a PAN number, how would he fill the new form 15 giving details of the ward/ circle etc. Please advise. Thanks

    • Dear Shekhar,

      I am not sure but you can contact bank and show the proof that you have applied for PAN card. Bank may agree.
      You may ask them that you are never been assessed by Incometax.

    I have retired in July 2012. I had taxable Income in FY 2012-13 (AY 2013-14) for which I have already paid Tax (Advance Tax and TDS. Income in FY 2013-14 is not likely to be taxable.
    I am to submit form 15H to the banks for the first time.
    I am a little confused on filling the Form 15H. Followings are my doubts.
    i) Is the Form 15 H now being submitted in April 2013 is for the FY 2013-14?
    ii) As I Paid Tax for the FY 2012-13 (the previous year), can I submit Form 15H for the FY 2013-14?
    iii) Item no. 21 – Estimated total income for which year? Possibly the current FY i.e. 2013-14. The various sources mentioned in item no.21 do not include “Pension” credited to the Bank, which is obviously a source of my income. Where can I write the amount of pension?
    iv) Item no. 22- Estimated total income of the previous year in which income mentioned in Column 21 is included. Here again, which one is previous year? How can the estimated total income from various sources in current year (Item no. 21) be included in estimated total income of previous year?
    v) In which Schedule of 15 H shall I write the details of my Savings Bank Account?
    vi) Where in the Form shall I write the particulars of my Bank (i.e. Name, Customer ID, Account no.
    vii) In the verification statement, what should be the ‘previous year ending on ….’ if I am submitting the Form now in April 2013?
