I am employed with an Indian company. For entire FY2012, I was working outside India so my residency status for FY2012 is NRI and hence I should be exempted from Indian Income Tax. However my company could not determine my correct residency status and by mistake paid income tax (TDS on salary) on my behalf even though I was not paid any salary in INR.
Now my Form-16 shows my gross earnings in INR and based on that the necessary taxes were paid and there are no returns. But now I need to file the returns for all the TDS on salary that was paid by my company. Can you please suggest how should I file my returns Online? I mean do I need to fill all the details on ITR-1 as per my Form-16, in which case the refund would get calculated as 0. Or shall I simply show the income against point “4-Gross Total Income” as 0 so that whatever was the TDS, would show as the refund? Also after online filling of ITR-1, in addition to ITR-V, do I need to provide any other documents to prove my residency status as NRI for FY2012?
