  1. Sir your blog is very helpful but one thing I want to ask about10E form . Which income sholid i fill Gross total income or total income (after 80c and other)

    • Hello Anju, You must fill Gross income in Form 10E (Column no 2), but tax calculation in (Column no 5), must be calculated taking Gross income as base and deduct all deduction under section 80C.

      Thanks 🙂

  2. Kindly explain the situation that I have for FY 2016-17
    Gross Income: 4,48,000/-
    Saving u/s 80C: 1,50,000/-
    whatever tax was paid got refunded for FY 2016-17
    In FY 2017-18 I have arrear of Rs. 40,415/-

    Then what to fill in column 5 & 6 of Table ‘A’

    • According to your question, there is two scenario:

      First: In FY 2016-17 Gross income is 448000/- and after deduction u/s 80C 150000/- You paid Tax of Rs (Say) 5000/-
      Second: If you receive the arrear amount in the same year (2016-07) then your gross income increases by 488115/- and after deduction u/s 80C 150000/- You have to pay Tax of Rs (Say) 6000/-.

      So, In column 5, you have to enter amount what you actually paid.
      and in column 6, you have to enter the amount which will pay if you received the arrear amount in the same year.

      As per figures above:
      You have to enter Rs 5000/- in column 5 & Rs 6000/- in column 6.

      Thanks 🙂

      • Thank u sir for ur reply

        Again I have confusion suppose I had paid 5000 Rs Tax but after filing ITR for AY 2017-18 whole tax which was deducted got refunded. It means I hadn’t paid any tax. At the same time if I deduct investment u/s 80C from Gross income my tax liability is becoming zero considering rebate of Rs. 5000/- for income below 5 Lakh.

        Then my confusion is whether I should fill Rs. 5000/- or Rs. 0/- in column 5
        And if I consider arrear for previous year then suppose I would have to pay additional 1000 Rs as Tax

        Then in column 6 I should fill Rs. 6000/- or Rs. 1000/-

        • Hello Priyesh,

          In your previous scenario and considering 80C and rebate your tax amount is nil, So in column no 5, you have to enter (O) zero.

          Now you have to recalculate your tax amount considering your arrears in the same year. (that means if you get your additional amount along with your salary at the same time, what you should consider in income? the whole amount. Right).

          For instance: If your salary amount is 50000/- per month, you are considering 6 Lakhs, right and you are calculating accordingly, Now you received your arrears of 5000/- per month in next FY, right.

          My point if you receive 5000/- along with your salary at the same time i.e. 55000/-, your total income will be 7.2 Lkahs. Ok

          You have to calculate the Tax amount considering 7.2 Lakhs as gross then deduct 80C and rebate, whatever tax amount you figure out, would be entered in column no – 6.

          Thanks 🙂

          • Thank u very much, now i have got all my confusion clear. Now I can file ITR with ease. I was googling about this topic for the last 3-4 days then I found ur blog, u explained very well & also ur reply was very prompt. I appreciate ur effort.

      • Hi Sir,
        I recieved NPS component(employers contribution) as arrears in this years. This arrear was taxed as it was more than the limit(10% of salary). I am planning to fill form 10E and get relief as my NPS employer contribution is only 7% of salary each year(so should be fully tax excempted).

        Can you please let me know if the tax calculated in column 6 of Table A(Form 10E) would increase?

        So when i enter details in TableA(10E) income in column 4 would increase but tax in column 5 and 6 would remain same(considering that the arrear in column 3 is NPS component and fully tax excempted). Is this correct?

        How will the executive checking my returns know that the arrears I entered in column 3 is fully tax excempted?

        Thanks in Advance

        • Hello John Jacab,

          Table 10 (E) Column 4 figure will increase due to the arrears additional amount (if) received in previous years. Column 5 amount is fixed (which you have already calculated in previous years and filled your tax accordingly). But as far as column 6 is a concern you have to recalculate the tax amount considering your arrears into your account for the previous years (you are entering in column 1).

  7. Hi Good Morning,

    I received my salary arrears in 2018-19 for the fy 2017-18 and filed form 10E and submitted form 10E to my employer for further TDS but their query is how to show last year salary in TDS form as their is no provision in TDS form.

    • Hello,
      Firstly, You don’t need to submit your Form 10E to your employer, While filling ITR of 2018-19, you must submit form 10E mentioning the details of 2017-18 and the Difference in tax will be carried forwarded to section relief u/s 89 and that amount will be deducted from your tax. If your tax amount is nil, then after filling ITR you will get the refund of that amount.


  8. I have received arrears of salary for last 9 years in the FY year 2015-16. Again in the FY year 2016-17, received some more arrears of 10 years. Both the times I claimed relief U/S 89 but failed to submit form 10E. Now Income Tax Department issued two separate notices for both the cases. In this situation what should I do? Should I submit form 10E for these years separately? If so, which amount is to be mentioned in the form 10E of FY 2016-17, in the column for “Total income of the relevant previous year”? Is that the amount showed in the form 10E for the FY year 2015-16, in the column for “Total income (as increased by salary received in arrears or advance) of the relevant previous year as mentioned in column (1) [Add columns (2) and (3)]”?
    Thank you very much for your kind efforts.

    • Firstly you can not claim u/s 89 without submitting Form 10E. Currently, you can not revise your return you only have to comply with the notice and pay the penalty with interest.

      Don’t forget to fill Form 10E for claiming u/s 89.

      Thanks 🙂

    • Hello Nipin.

      If you have received your arrears amount in FY 2015-16, you have to claim arrears u/s 89 after filling Form 10E, In your case, you can revise your return, but its 3 years old, you can not revise or change your 3 years old return, as the assessment is already done.

      Thanks 🙂

          • Sir ,
            I am confused. I got arrears in FY 2017-18. What is the AY I have to select for Form 10E? AY 2017-18 or AY 2018-19

    • Hello sir,
      My gross salary in 2016-17 as per ITR filed last year is 178278 and 80c savings are 43438.

      My gross salary in 2017-18 is 857486 out of which 411628 is arrears of 2016-17 and 2017-18 itself.

      After splitting, arrears of 2016-17 is 241120 and 2017-18 is 170508.

      By this my gross salary of 2016-17 is 419398
      and gross salary of 2017-18 is 616366. My 80c savings
      in 2017-18 is 155557.

      As per the guidelines given by you above,
      Annexure 1
      Point 1. ……..616366
      Point 2…………241120
      Point 3…………857486
      Point 4……………50976
      Point 5……………10063
      Point 6……………7596
      Point 7……………33317

      Table A
      Column 1…… 2016-17
      Column 2……178278 (as per previous itr)
      Column 3……241120
      Column 4……419398
      Column 5…….0
      Column 6…….7596
      Column 7……7596

      I request you to kindly verify my above calculation whether it is correct or not for submitting my form 10E. Please guide.

      • First of all the amount 170508, you can not treat this as arrears if we are talking about 17-18 that is income.

        Column 1…… 2016-17 – correct
        Column 2……178278 (as per previous itr) – correct
        Column 3……241120 – correct
        Column 4……419398 – correct
        Column 5…….0 (You have to enter the amount you have paid in 16-17)
        Column 6…….7596 (you have to recalculate and enter the tax amount manually considering the arrears into account in 16-17)

        Colomn 7 will give you the difference amount at which you will get the exemption.

        Thanks 🙂

        • Understood sir, that is why I included up 170508 in 616366 in point 1 of annexure 1.

          Secondly, my income in 2016-17 was nontaxable, that’s why column 5 is filled by 0. In 2016-17 my 80c savings 43438. So I think column 6 amount is 7596.

          Kindly check n guide sir because due date is nearby.

          • Ok If your income of 2016-17 (without adding arrears is nontaxable), which you have already declared is zero. It’s OK. Secondly, after adding arrears amount in the gross income of 16-17 and after all deduction, your tax amount comes 7596. then it’s OK. You can Go ahead!

            Thank You.

In column 2 “Total income of the relevant previous year”. you have to enter the amount of the relevant years, for example, if you have received arrears of 15-16, you have to enter the Total income of the relevant year without arrears. arrears amount will be entered in column 3.

      Thanks 🙂

  14. Sir I have got arrear of financial year 2016-2017 in year 2017-2018 so while filling form what should I fill as previous year and while selecting form 10 e what should I fill as assessment year

  15. Hi Sir,
    I have filled the form 10E with taxable income instead of gross income. Also arrear filled in the form 10E is different from one that is mentioned in form 16 by company. I have added arrear of HRA in it also.

    Can you tell me, which arrear do i have to fill as my ITR is returned by CPC Bangalore with zero tax relief.

    Thank you

  22. Sir,

    Arrears of salary is being received over the period of 5 years.
    Do I need to consider the arrears of salary received in previous 3 years to calculate the relief u/s 89(1) for the 4th year or only the arrears of salary received in the 4th year.

    I have considered only the arrears of salary received in the 4th year in the ITR for calculating the relief u/s 89(1) for the 4th year but still got notice with reduced relief.

    Please advise urgently.
