Dear Sir

I worked with a private company for 78 months. Out of this for 20 months (in breaks) I was is USA and was paid USA salary. I have given a provident fund (PF) withdrawal request to my ex-employer. Will the PF amount be taxable?

  2. Dear Sunil, although there was a break in your PF contribution but your service was continue with the same employer, so in my opinion, the PF withdraw is tax free.
