Be it an NRI or a Local Resident, any Individual with an Income that exceeds INR 250,000/- during last Financial Year is required to file an Income Tax Return in India.

Why to File Return?

NRIs must file their income tax returns when they:

  • Want to claim a refund
  • Have a loss that they want to carry forward
  • Want to submit any authority or financial institution
  • To avoid any penalty from income tax department and compliance with tax authorities

Even in case when an individual’s income level is not eligible to be liable for the compulsory filing of ITR, it is still preferable to be wise enough and do so on your own in order to keep all your past records in place as well. There can be many benefits of having your ITR in place such as for showing as proof of income at the time of taking a loan or when applying for a visa at the time travelling to an international destination.

  2. Enhances the chances of getting a Loan, especially Home Loan / Personal Loan
  3. Reduces the chances of getting Legal Notices if one is filing Returns every year
  4. No need to worry especially when you are NRI returning back to India for good after retirement
