POSTED BY bhavesh83 ON November 6, 2014 11:00 am NO COMMENTS

I have been working since July 2005 and since then I have switched 3 companies and kept transferring my PF account regularly to new PF account. I recently switched to a new company in july 2014 and now I am looking to withdraw my EPF fund. As per your article after 5 years of continuous job , PF withdrawl is tax free.

But in my previous company I stayed for 7 years but went to abroad for 18 months and my PF account was not credited PF. In Summary here is the detail with my company and PF account.

July 2005 to Oct 2006 company1 PF account1
Oct 2006 to May 2007 company 2 PF account 2 (PF account1 deposit transferred)
May 2007 to May 2011 company 3 PF account 3 (PF account 2 deposit transferred)
May 2011 to Dec 2012 company 3(abroad) PF account 3 (without any deposit for 18 months)
Dec 2012 to July 2014 company 3(india) PF account 4(PF account 3 deposit transferred)

Please let me know if I withdraw from PF account 4 , will it attract tax on my PF withdrawal.
