As a senior citizen, my father's pension was within the taxable limit for the past 3 years so he didn't file any tax returns.
Now he wants to spread over the pension arrears he received in 2009 to the past 3 years to minimize his tax liability on arrears.Obviously in which case his income for previous 3 years would go beyond the senior citizen limit.
Since he is also disabled for the past 4 years, can he avail of the deduction under Sec. 80U & 80DDB for the past 3 years corresponding to those years tax liability ?

That's exactly what my question is.

1) He has not filed returns for last 3 years as his pension was below the senior citizen tax limits.

2) He wants to make use of Sec 89 & spread his arrears recd in 2009  over the past 3 years.

3) He is disabled for the past 4 years.

So, while spreading his arrears under Sec 89 his income for the past 3 years would become taxable.

Can he use deduction under Sec 80U & Sec 80DDB for the past 3 years also corresponding to those years tax liabilty while makin use of Sec 89 ?

Let me be more specific.

He intends to seek relief under Sec 89 & spread his arrears over the financial years 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09.

Can he seek deduction under Sec 80U for the above metioned financial years while seeking relief under Sec 89 ?
