——Answer MCQ Self Challenge # 0062——

 

Dear Professional Seniors & Friends,

Warm Regards!

 

This post of MCQ is on provisions relating to various interest applicable under different provisions on late payment of income tax.

 

Answer to MCQ 62.1: A) Interest under Section 234B & C will be applicable.

 

Answer to MCQ 62.2: D) None of the above.

 

Practical Analysis for MCQ 62.1& 62.2:-

  1. As per section 208 every person whose estimated tax liability for the year exceeds Rs. 10,000, shall pay his tax in advance in the form of “advance tax”. Thus, any taxpayer whose estimated tax liability for the year exceeds Rs. 10,000 has to pay his tax in advance by the due dates prescribed in this regard.
  2. Applicability of various interest under different provisions is defined below-
1)234AIf assessee does not file the return on due date or return is not filed.
2234BIf advance tax paid by the assessee during the previous year is < 90% of assesses tax.
3)234CIf advance tax paid by the assessee during the previous year is < the amount of installments to be paid as per prescribed due dates.

 

  1. It has been held by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of CIT vs Prannoy Roy, 309 ITR 231 (2009) that the interest under section 234A of the Act on default in furnishing return of income shall be payable only on the amount of tax that has not been deposited before the due date of filing of the income-tax return.
  2. CBDT also reviewed the same order of High court and it was confirmed vide Circular No. 02/2015 dated 10th Feb, 2015 that no interest under section 234A of the Act is chargeable on the amount of self-assessment tax paid by the assessee before the due date of filing of return of income.
  3. Also as per section 207, a resident senior citizen (i.e., an individual of the age of 60 years or above) not having any income from business or profession is not liable to pay advance tax
  4. Based on the above analysis, correct answer MCQ 1: A) Interest under Section 234B & C will be applicable.
  5. Correct answer MCQ 61.2: D) None of the above since the assessee is a senior citizen and not having income from PGBP.
