Long term capital gain tax on gold mutual funds- NRI Investment
Query of Blog Reader:
shall appreciate if you could let me know what is long term capital gain
tax on gold saving mutual fund. XXXXX MF have deducted 22% on the gold
mutual fund I sold after 1 year of possession. Which method they should
follow 11% or 20% with indexation. I had them for 1 year 12 months. What
indexation they should apply? Hope to hear soon from you
After reading your query it seems you tax status is NRI as tax is deducted at source.
In case of NRI's, TDS will be deducted on the sale proceeds. The TDS
will deducted depending upon whether it
is a short-term capital gain or long term capital gains.
The tax system for Gold Savings Fund or Gold ETF is similar to that of
non-equity mutual funds like debt funds. When computing income tax,
gold exchange traded funds are treated as debt funds.
