Dear Mr.Amir

The link  which is talking about 89(1) relief on Leave Salary and not how to compute the 89(1 )relief.  Could u   share the information with dummy datas, it will be useful to me.  Further, In the Leave Salary on retirement or otherwise, I didn't understand is  how the leave salary earned can be bifuricated to the various years  and how is it possible to match the present salary by  which arrears got can be subsituted with the present salary  for the previous years in which his salary would have been less.

Computation of relief in case of relief when salary has been received in arrears or in advance under section 89(1) (in terms of section 89 read with rule 21A):

1. Calculate the tax payable on the total income, including the additional salary of the relevant previous year in which the same is received.
2. Calculate the tax payable on the total income, excluding the additional salary of the relevant previous year in which the same is received.
3. Find out the difference in tax at (1) and (2) above.
4. Compute the tax on the total income after excluding the additional salary in the previous year to which such salary relates.
5. Compute the tax on the total income after including the additional salary in the previous year to which such salary relates.
6. Find out the difference in tax at (4) and (5) above.
7. The excess of tax computed at (3) over the tax computed at (6) is the amount of relief admissible u/s 89(1). No relief is however admissible if the tax computed at (3) is less than the tax computed at (6). In such a case the assessee–employee need not apply for relief.

Dear Sir,

Could not get ur question....

Employers share in PF contribution is not taxable if it is upto 12%........Employee's share is taxable (Deduction u/s 80C is available)

An assesee has received arrears of Salary (say Basic), Now Employer will contribute 12% as his contribution & from those arrears 12% Employees contribution will be deducted........Ok

So, Relief can be claimed in respect of entire arrears(basic including employee contribution to PF)...The same will be eligible u/s 80C........

Now if u have something else, then plz ask....
