Tax on Dividends

Hi, My uncle is a managing director of a Pvt Ltd Company.  His is receiving Dividend of 50 Lakhs from the company. Dividend Distribution Tax has been paid by the company.  Is this dividend income is fully exempted for my uncle or if he needs to show this in his return and pay income tax?

if dividend is received against shares hold by him, then tax free, but u have to disclose the same in return as tax free dividend


for other nature of dividend, furnish details

Dividend income is exempt in the hands of shareholders if it is received from indian company. so it is tax free.

Yes dividend is tax free when received from an Indian Company. The same has to be mentioned in the return of income as exempted income.

u/s 10 (34) of income tax act,1961,dividend from domestic company is exempt from tax in the hands of securities holder because of the concept of dividend distribution tax.

but it has to b furnished in the return as an exempted item under the head INCOME FROM OTHER SOURCES.

just curious with amount mentioned, 

many a places interest is mentioned as dividend to misguide ppls, viz as some places deposits are taken on "daily dividend" basis, but in real fact those are interst, 

as the amount is significant high, i clarified that it its for share in company then exempted, but every receipt can not be dividend, so if anything else, then asked to share...................

If DDT has been paid per sec 115O by the Indian Co.....d same is exempt u/s 10(34) in the hands of shareholder. No need to further check the nature of the receipts.

However, to manage our expenses correctly we have to learn them in order to know that they are in balance. Your search is over, all the info you need is at Match Financial!
