It appears that the most of the salaried persons got the salary amount from the previous Financial Year , and after got the arrears Salary the Income have raised in this Financial Year. But this amount which you have got this Financial year as Salary Income, this amount not for this Financial Year earning and this is not liable to paid the Tax in this Financial Year , as this amount received from the financial year.
As per the Income Tax Act 1961 the Income Tax Section 89(1) can get Arrears Relief relevant to the previous years earning. This Section too much prominent from the 6th Pay Commission of Central and State Employees Arrears amount received. Previously this Section was introduce to the Tax payers only for the get the Relief From the Gratuity as this Section also can get relief the Arrears of Gratuity amount for the Pensioners.
Now it is another question that, most of the employees have not concept about how to calculate the Arrears Relief or how to bifurcate the income. In this Section 89(1) it is calculate as per the Standard Deduction for the same financial year, if the Arrears Salary Received with Arrears Received amount cross the limit of the same financial year’s Standard Deduction, then he can not get the Relief. For an Example :- Mr. A, received the Arrears Salary for the financial year 2015-16 Rs. 20,000/- in the financial Year 2017-18 and the Total Salary Income was Rs.1,50,000/- for the Financial Year 2015-16, then his Total Salary Income will be Rs. 20,000/- + 1,50,000/- = 1,70,000/- and the Standard Deduction is Rs. 2,50,000/-. Hence the Total Income below the Standard Deduction, and you can get the Arrears Relief for the Financial 3016-17, But if the Income is over Rs. 2,50,000/- than you can not get the Relief.
If you have received arrears of salary in Financial year 2017-18 or previous any years related to previous years then your tax liability will be on higher side due to arrears but do you know that you can bifurcate your income from arrears in respective years on notional basis and can avail relief u/s 89(1) of Income tax Act 1961.
