  1. TaxguruForAPHOTA says:

    Dear Deepak Kumar Ji, I retired in August 2017. I did not withdraw my EPF corpus at that time and applied for withdrawal on July 2020. I served the organisation for full 7 years from August 2010 to retirement in August 2017.
    I was contributing to voluntary provident fund from April 2013 to March 2016. No VPF thereafter. I have filed withdrawal online on Form 19 for full and final settlement. What would be tax implications, the last VPF contribution completing only 4 years and not 5 years? Would the interest on my entire VPF be taxable or only on VPF of year 15-16 ?

  2. Manish Saini says:

    Is TDS applicable on the whole amount of Employers share, Employees Share & even Pension amount if it reaches 50000/-
    Or it is applicable only when the employer & Employees share is more than 50,000/-
    Please clarify this doubt.
