How it is treated under income tax laws

I’m an worker in a non-public hospital. My wage is instantly credited within the checking account. I additionally get some cash in money towards vouchers as allowances.  I wish to know the way to cope with this money given to me as  allowances? Can I present it in my ITR ? What’s the tax remedy for it? 

Reply: Any allowance given by the employer to its worker to satisfy bills in the midst of efficiency of his obligation is absolutely exempt, to the extent it’s spent. So the allowances acquired by you may be taxable to the extent the identical haven’t been spent by you. It appears your employer has handled the allowances to be absolutely spent and has not deducted any tax on it. Whether or not your  employer hospital has handled these allowances as taxable or not can be ascertained from the shape no. 16 issued to you by the hospital. In case the identical has not been included within the taxable wage, you should not have to do something for it. Nevertheless, when you’ve got not spent the allowances absolutely, you possibly can provide the unspent portion for tax and embody it in your wage revenue whereas submitting your revenue tax return. Exempt and non-exempt allowances should be proven individually in ITR kind. Nevertheless, these particulars will not be required to be given if you’re submitting Kind ITR 1. For allowances not spent absolutely and represented by any tangible funding you can’t declare the exemption. I’d advise you to pay taxes on it in such a scenario to keep away from any complication in future.
