Did you receive any advance salary or arrears of salary? If yes, you might be worried about the tax implications of the same. Do I have to pay taxes on the total amount? What about the tax calculations of the previous year and so on? Taxpayers who have such questions in their mind, here is all that you need to know.

By now, you would have already figured out that income tax is calculated on the total income of a taxpayer for a certain year. The income can either be in the form of salary or family pension or other sources of income. However, there might be scenarios where you have received arrears of family pension or pending salary during the current fiscal year. It can happen that an income tax payer gets a part of his profit or salary in advance or as arrears in any financial year, which increases his total income thereby increase the payable taxes. In such a case, an application can be made and the assessing officer can grant a relief to the tax payer. To sum it up, the Income Tax Act ensures there is parity in the income tax slab rates, and thus, when a portion of the income received does not pertain to the current year, a relief is granted so that the taxable income does not increase.

To ensure that you are not burdened with paying additional taxes, the income tax department provides Relief U/s 89(1). If you receive any pension or payments for the previous year, you will not be taxed on the total amount for the current year. Essentially keeping you away from paying extra taxes, because there was a delay in payment.

What is relief under section 89(1)?

When the taxpayer receives:

  1. Arrears of salary or
  2. Advance salary or
  3. Arrears of family pension

then such amount is taxable in the Financial Year in which it is received.

However, relief under section 89(1) is provided to reduce additional tax burden due to delay in receiving such income.

How to calculate relief under section 89(1)?

Here are the steps to calculate relief under section 89(1) of Income Tax Act, 1961:

  1. Calculate tax payable on total income including arrears in the year in which it is received.
  2. Calculate tax payable on total income excluding arrears in the year in which it is received.
  3. Calculate difference between (1) and (2).
  4. Calculate tax payable on total income of the year to which arrears are related, including arrears.
  5. Calculate tax payable on total income of the year to which arrears are related, excluding arrears.
  6. Calculate difference between (4) and (5).
  7. The amount of relief will be the excess amount of (3) over (6). No relief shall be allowed if the amount of (6) is more than the amount in (3).
