I want to know whether EPF will be taxable if i leave my job before 5years but still not withdrawing the amount for 5 years after opening the account. 

Here is the scenario:

I start job in 2009 and quit in 2012 and withdraw the amount only after 2014.

    If you dont withdraw from PF account, there wont be any tax, provided you moved PF account from previous company to new company’s PF account.

    Company A – join in 2009, quit in 2012
    Company B – join in 2012

    Now, to save tax on PF money of company A…transfer PF account to Company B…incase you dont do it..even if you withdraw from Company A PF account in 2014, it ll still counted as taxable in 2014’s annual income.

    Keep transferring PF money to new company’s PF account until you stay in a company for 5yrs to save tax.
