1. First include the income earned and taxed in the forieng country  along with the income earned in india.

2. Then calculate tax on the Total income Above.

3. Now calculate average rate of tax. 

4. Then multiply such rate with the income earned from foreign.country.

5. Deduct tax paid in the foreign country from the tax calculated in step. 4 above, .

Such amount is relief u/ s 90.

 

Eg.   -  In case of Resident individual.

Income earned in india = Rs500000

Income earned from foreign = 200000 (tax paid there = Rs.50,000)

 

1. Total income is = 500000 + 200000 = 700000

2. Tax calculated on 7,00,000/-  is Rs. 118450/-

3. averge rate of tax is      (118450 / 700000)   = 16.92%

4.Calculate average tax on foreign income i.e. 200000 x 16.92% = Rs. 33840/-

5. TAx paid in foreign country is Rs. 50,000.

6. Hence relief u/s 90 is lower of 33840 and 50000, i.e 33.840/-

 

Therefore tax statement is,

 

TAx on total income  = 118450

Less: relief u/s 90     = 33840  

Tax payable                   84610/-

Respected Friend ARUNA & ASHISH

ARUNA u asked about Sec.90 ie Taxation of Income where DTAA exist, it is always possiable where 2 countries have a Bilateral Agreement between them, so in that case 2 things may happen - 1. whether such country has got any Bilateral Agreement with India or not, If they have then just go through such agreement & treat the tax matter as per the agreement, where tax is to be charged in India at a reduced rate which is called Tax Exemption Method or 2. u may have Tax Credit Method which is as fllows,

First Compute Total Income as per Income Tax Act 1961

Last from such Income so computed allow relief as per the terms of the Tax treaty.

Ashish, the soln. u given is v.good but as per my knowledge it is a treatment U/S 91 of Indian Income Tax Act. 1961 where u do not have a Bilateral Agreement & an unilateral agreement is followes & on that basis without any agreement with any other country a relief is given to the assessee as per the method u have shown to us.

I think reders r all superior brains then me so if any improvement is comming then I personally would be greatful to them.

Thanks to everyone.

Hi Ashis

Your note on the calculation of relief U/S 90 is of immense importance and help. A real useful post. I have a querry on this. I would like to ask it if you do not mind. I learnt from the officials of the IT Department that there is a procedure for calculating the same as follows:

(Indian Income/Global Income)*Tax paid in the foreign country

Considering your example of 5lacs & 2lacs the relief amt will come to be something around Rs. 14,286.00 on that basis.

Can you please throw some light on this? Does there exist any such formula?

Looking forward to hearing from you and/or any other tax expert

Regards
