I had not filled the Income Tax return for F.Y. 2010-2011, in the same year Government acquired my land under compulsory acquisition. Now in current year Government provided the compensation with interest on which they have deducted TDS. So how to claim such TDS???
As the land is acquired under compulsory acquisition by the Govt, though the capital asset is acquired in the FY 2010-11, capital gains needs to be computed in the year in which compensation is received i.e. in the current year (as informed by the querist) [refer section 45(5)].
therefore, though the land is acquired in the earlier year same needs to be taxed in the current year in view of section 45(5). Accordingly the querist may claim TDS credit for the same in the current year itself.
