Petitioner asks whether he and his wife are residents of Yonkers, as opposed to New York City, for purposes of paying personal income taxes, when the entire physical house in which they reside is located in Yonkers and the front yard is located in the Bronx. 

The following clarifications are given in this matter:-

(i) The purpose of this reform of making the change in tax regime is to encourage more private-sector employees to go for pension security after retirement instead of withdrawing the entire money from the Provident Fund Account.

(ii) Towards this objective, the Government has announced that Forty Percent(40%) of the total corpus withdrawn at the time of retirement will be tax-exempt both under-recognized Provident Fund and NPS.

(iii) It is expected that the employees of private companies will place the remaining 60% of the Corpus in Annuity, out of which they can get regular pension. When this 60% of the remaining Corpus is invested in Annuity, no tax is chargeable. So what it means is that the entire corpus will be tax free, if invested in an annuity.

(iv) The Government in this Budget has also made another change which says that when the person investing in Annuity dies and when the original Corpus goes in the hands of his heirs, then again there will be no tax.

(v) The idea behind this mechanism is to encourage people to invest in pension products rather than withdraw and use the entire Corpus after retirement.

(vi) The main category of people for whom EPF scheme was created are the members of EPFO who are within the statutory wage limit of Rs.15,000 per month. Out of around 3.7 crores contributing members of EPFO as on today, around 3 crore subscribers are in this category. For this category of people, there is not going to be any change in the new dispensation.

(vii) However, in EPFO, there are about 60 lakh contributing members who have accepted EPF voluntarily and they are highly – paid employees of private sector companies. For this category of people, amount at present can be withdrawn without any tax liability. We are changing this. What we are saying is that such employee can withdraw without tax liability provided he contributes 60% in annuity product so that pension security can be created for him according to his earning level. However, if he chooses not to put any amount in Annuity product the tax would not be charged on 40%.

(viii) There is no change in the existing tax treatment of Public Provident Fund (PPF).

(ix) Currently there is no monetary ceilings on the employer contribution under EPF with only ceiling being that it would be 12% of the salary of the employee member. Similarly, there is no monetary ceiling on the employer contribution under NPS, except that it would be 10% of salary.

(x) Now the Finance Bill 2016 provides that there would be monetary ceiling of Rs1.5 lakh on employer contribution considered with the ceiling of the 12% rate of employer contribution, whichever is less.

(xi) We have received representations today from various sections suggesting that if the amount of 60% of corpus is not invested in the annuity products, the tax should be levied only on accumulated returns on the corpus and not on the contributed amount. We have also received representations asking for not having any monetary limit on the employer contribution under EPF, because such a limit is not there in NPS. The Finance Minister would be considering all these suggestions and taking a view on it in due course.

Public Law 114-113, Division Q (The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015), section 112 extends tax-free distributions from individual retirement plans for charitable purposes beginning  after December 31, 2014.  There is no special reporting of these distributions on Form 1099-R.

You may end up saving more in the months ahead with the Employees Provident Fund Organization getting ready to re-notify a new definition of compensation that will include all your allowances, amid intense lobbying against the move by industry bodies. At present, employers get away by contributing only 12% of the basic salary and dearness allowance, which is not paid by most companies, towards their share of matching PF and Employees Pension Scheme contribution.So, for several thousand employees, the basic salary remains constant, while increments are passed by way of enhanced or new allowances. In most cases, the tax liability for the employee goes up due to the salary hike and companies earn tax credits on salary-related expenses but the statutory PF contribution remains unchanged. EPFO notified the changes last year but had to withdraw the circular following protests by employers.


EPFOs proposed move may help in increasing savings Employers will now have to contribute for the PF on all allowances EPFO had to withdraw the notification last year after protests CII has written to the labor minister arguing that the plan should be deferred

Allowance Definition irks Industry

Industry is resisting the move to define compensation as all allowances, but the Employees Provident Fund Organization is expected to go ahead with the plan as a panel set up by the labor ministry to vet the proposal has endorsed it. Government officials countered the industry argument on the new definition, saying EPFO membership was mandatory only for employees earning Rs 6,500 a month. Anyone beyond that level could opt out. Although it may be difficult for several employers to give the opt-out option, reworking of the salary structure to ensure that the wage bill doesn't shoot up can be on the cards. The report is pending with the ministry but sources said the government will go ahead and notify the norms. Confederation of India Industry has dashed off a letter to labor Minister Mallikarjun Kharge arguing that the plan should be deferred.
