My father died in 2014. His salary arrears from 2006 to 2012 are now being paid to me. They are deducting TDS against my PAN number and giving money in my account as his son. Will these arrears be counted as my income? OR Inheritance from a father? In whose name and PAN no. Should the return be filed?
It is your responsibility to pay the tax in the name of your father. Refer the below post for the same.
I will file return in his name. Will the Amount received after paying his tax be added to my income for the purpose of tax calculation on my Income?
