When I redeem for SIPs from my ultra short term debt funds, TDS of 30% is applied before the payout. Can I claim for refund as I am an NRI and I don t have any other income in India. Can I file the ITR online?
To claim a refund, you need to file your income tax return in India. You can do so online using the Income Tax e-filing portal.
NRIs are taxed in India for income that is earned in India. Fund houses are mandated to deduct TDS on the investment of NRIs at the time of redemption at the rates mentioned in the table below. But if it is more than your actual tax liability in India, you can file your return and claim a refund.
