No tax on PF withdrawal after 5 years of continuous service2 min read 05 Aug 2015, 07:53 PM IST
Withdrawal of PF is taxable if the employee has not rendered continuous service for five years or more to the employer
I worked in a Chennai-based organisation for four years. Now I am going abroad for work. Since I have not completed five years of continuous service, my provident fund (PF) withdrawal will be taxable. But if I get my Universal Account Number (UAN) and hold the PF for another two years and then put forth the withdrawal request, will I still be taxed?
