Do NRIs need to file returns?

Yes. Why? See notice alongside, received by NRI client without Indian income. Notice received in July 2018 for 5 year old transactions. Can you get necessary info after 5 yrs? Even from banks / brokers which have closed? To avoid this trap we recommend NRI's file tax returns every year, even if they do not have income in India

  • Notices can be sent up to 6 years back (Section 148)
  • Many NRI's are unaware of Tax Notices due to change in address. Is your email during PAN application still valid?
  • NRI's usually get TDS refunds
