  2. 2. Indirect tax <ul><li>The term  indirect tax  has more than one meaning. </li></ul><ul><li>In the colloquial sense, an indirect tax (such as  sales tax , a specific tax [a tax per unit],  value added tax  (VAT), or  goods and services tax  (GST)) is a  tax  collected by an intermediary (such as a retail store) from the person who bears the ultimate economic burden of the tax (such as the customer). The intermediary later files a tax return and forwards the tax proceeds to  government  with the return. In this sense, the term indirect tax is contrasted with a direct tax which is collected directly by government from the persons (legal or natural) on which it is imposed. Some commentators have argued that &quot;a direct tax is one that cannot be shifted by the taxpayer to someone else, whereas an indirect tax can be.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>An indirect tax may increase the price of a good so that consumers are actually paying the tax by paying more for the products.Examples would be fuel, liquor, and cigarette taxes. An excise duty on motor cars is paid in the first instance by the manufacturer of the cars; ultimately the manufacturer transfers the burden of this duty to the buyer of the car in form of a higher price. Thus, an indirect tax is such which can be shifted or passed on. The degree to which the burden of a tax is shifted determines whether a tax is primarily direct or primarily indirect. This is a function of the relative  elasticity  of the supply and demand of the goods or services being taxed. Under this definition, even income taxes may be indirect. </li></ul><ul><li>The term indirect tax has a different meaning for U.S. constitutional law purposes: see  direct tax  and  excise . </li></ul>
  3. 3. Direct tax <ul><li>The term  direct tax  generally means a tax paid directly to the government by the persons on whom it is imposed. </li></ul><ul><li>in the general sense, a direct tax is one paid  directly  to the government by the persons ( juristic  or  natural ) on whom it is imposed (often accompanied by a tax return filed by the taxpayer). Examples include some  income taxes , some  corporate taxes , and  transfer taxes  such as estate (inheritance) tax and gift tax. In this sense, a direct tax is contrasted with an indirect tax  or &quot;collected&quot; tax (such as  sales tax  or  value added tax  (VAT)); a &quot;collected&quot; tax is one which is collected by intermediaries who turn over the proceeds to the government and file the related tax return. Some commentators have argued that &quot;a direct tax is one that cannot be shifted by the taxpayer to someone else, whereas an indirect tax can be.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>An 18th century writing about the tax explained: </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>“ The power of direct taxation applies to every individual, as congress under this government is expressly vested with the authority of laying a capitation or poll-tax upon every person to any amount. This is a tax that, however oppressive in its nature, and unequal in its operation, is certain as to its produce and simple in it collection; it cannot be evaded like the objects of imposts or excise, and will be paid, because all that a man hath will he give for his head. This tax is so congenial to the nature of despotism, that it has ever been a favorite under such governments. Some of those who were in the late general convention from this state, have long labored to introduce a poll-tax among us.The power of direct taxation will further apply to every individual, as congress may tax land, cattle, trades, occupations, &c. to any amount, and every object of internal taxation is of that nature, that however oppressive, the people will have but this alternative, either to pay the tax, or let their property be taken for all resistance will be vain. The standing army and select militia would enforce the collection. </li></ul>

  7. 7. Service tax <ul><li>Service tax  is a part of Central Excise in  India .It is a  tax  levied on  services provided  in  India , except the State of  Jammu and Kashmir . The responsibility of collecting the tax lies with the  Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC). </li></ul><ul><li>The  Finance Minister of India ,  Pranab Mukherjee  in his  Budget  speech has indicated the government's intent of merging all taxes like Service Tax, Excise and VAT into a common Goods and Service Tax by the year 2011. To achieve this objective, the rate of Central Excise and Service Tax will be progressively altered and brought to a common rate.[ citation needed ] In budget presented for 2008-2009 It was announced that all Small service providers whose turnover does not exceed Rs10 lakhs need not pay service tax. </li></ul><ul><li>Circular No. 127/9/2010-ST, dated 16-8-2010 regarding Service tax on commercial training and coaching - Whether ‘donation' is ‘consideration'. A representation has been received seeking clarification whether donations and grants-in-aid received from different sources by a charitable Foundation imparting free livelihood training to the poor and marginalized youth, will be treated as ‘consideration' received for such training and subjected to service tax under ‘commercial training or coaching service'. 2. The matter has been examined. The important point here is regarding the presence or absence of a link between ‘consideration' and taxable service. It is a settled legal position that unless the link or nexus between the amount and the taxable activity can be established, the amount cannot be subjected to service tax. Donation or grant-in-aid is not specifically meant for a person receiving such training or to the specific activity, but is in general meant for the charitable cause championed by the registered Foundation. Between the provider of donation/grant and the trainee there is no relationship other than universal humanitarian interest. In such a situation, service tax is not leviable, since the donation or grant-in-aid is not linked to specific trainee or training. </li></ul>

  11. 11. CLUBBING OF INCOME <ul><li>Generally an assessee is taxed in respect of his own income. But sometimes in </li></ul><ul><li>some exceptional circumstances this basic principle is deviated and the assessee </li></ul><ul><li>may be taxed in respect of income which legally belongs to somebody else. </li></ul><ul><li>Earlier the taxpayers made an attempt to reduce their tax liability by transferring </li></ul><ul><li>their assets in favour of their family members or by arranging their sources of </li></ul><ul><li>income in such a way that tax incidence falls on others, whereas benefits of </li></ul><ul><li>income is derived by them . So to counteract such practices of tax avoidance, </li></ul><ul><li>necessary provisions have been incorporated in sections 60 to 64 of the Income </li></ul><ul><li>Tax Act Hence, a person is liable to pay tax on his own income as well as income </li></ul><ul><li>belonging to others on fulfillment of certain conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Inclusion of other’s Incomes in the income of the assessee is called Clubbing of </li></ul><ul><li>Income and the income which is so included is called Deemed Income. It is as per </li></ul><ul><li>the provisions contained in Sections 60 to 64 of the Income Tax Act. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Cases of clubbing <ul><li>Under the following circumstances, the income of other person is included in the </li></ul><ul><li>income of the assessee.

  17. 17. Set off and carry forward losses under income tax act 78 <ul><li>Income tax  is a tax which is charged on the total  income  of the assessee and the income is computed head wise. The total of all head becomes the total income of the assessee. So sometimes in some heads there could be the loss, so it is reasonably set off to the other heads as to compute real income of the assessee and calculate the tax liability of the assessee. But the aggregation of income is a bit complex as it seems to. It’s not purely a mathematical calculation.  Income  taxact  contains certain provisions which do not allow certain losses at all, but allow some of them in particular manner and thus make the aggregation a legal concept. The complete process of aggregation of income is as follows. </li></ul><ul><li>Set off losses of current previous year: - under section 70 of income  tax loss  of one source, to be set off against the income of another source, falling under the same head. If there are several  sources of income  falling under any head of income, the loss from one source of income may be set off against the income from another source, falling under the same head of income. There are some exception to this rule like speculation loss, long term  capital gain , losses from head income from other sources, income from gambling and losses relating to exempted source. </li></ul><ul><li>Set off to be allowed against  taxable income  in a manner most beneficial to the assessee: - no particular mode of set off has been prescribed in income  tax law . So the assessee is entitled to claim a set off most beneficial to him [circular no 26 dated 7-7-1955]. </li></ul><ul><li>Inter head set off is mandatory: - loss of one source has to be set off against the profits of another source subject to the prescribed in this respect [CIT vs. Milling Trading Co. P ltd. (1995) 211 ITR 630(SC)]. </li></ul><ul><li>Partial set off not permissible: - intra head set off has to be done in full. Partial set off is not permissible. </li></ul><ul><li>Carry forward and set off losses: - losses which can’t be set off under the same head and thereafter under inter-head adjustments in accordance with law are carried forward and set off in accordance with following provisions </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Business loss: - under section 72 of income tax the business losses can be carried forward for 8 assessments year immediately following the year for which was the loss occurs. The condition is continuity of the business, carry forward and set off to be allowed only in respect of taxable source, carry forward permissible to the same assessee. </li></ul><ul><li>Loss by inheritance: - where an individual succeeds the business of his predecessor by inheritance, the successor is entitled to carry forward the loss incurred by the predecessor. However, the total period of carry forward can’t exceed 8 assessment years. </li></ul><ul><li>Carried forward business losses can be set off against speculative profits. Unabsorbed business loss can be set off to a newly started business. Carried forward business loss can not be set off against the income under any other head for example salary, house property, capital gain, other sources etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Scope of business profits for setting off business losses: - carried forward business loss may be set-off against the profits earned from any business activity though such activity might have been classified under some other head of income [CIT vs. cocanarda radhaswami bank ltd. (1965) 57 ITR 306(SC). Similarly where shares of foreign company are held as stock in trade in trade, the carried forward business loss can be set off against dividend received on such shares, through the income of dividend is computed under other sources. </li></ul><ul><li>Rent earned by exploitation of business assets is also a business income for the purpose of set-off. If business income of the wife or minor child is included in the total income of the assessee under clubbing provisions. </li></ul><ul><li>Speculation loss: - According to section 73 of income tax act, law has applied different yard sticks for speculatio </li></ul>
