Income Tax Department Announces Updated Guidelines For Cash Limit At Home

If you have the habit of storing your cash with yourself in your house, then it might be a problematic thing for you. Businessmen generally have a habit of storing their cash even if they will deposit it in the coming days. Some people store most of their cash in their home and they caught later. If you land up in such a situation, then you should know about every piece of money you own and what is the source. Below mentioned are some of the guidelines issued by the Income Tax Department to have a clear picture of the same.

You should be aware of the Income Tax Department’s prohibition on keeping cash at home. It’s probable that in the preceding several months, assembly elections were held in the states, and a big sum of cash was discovered in people’s homes. Every day, the cops recover cash worth crores of rupees. In such a circumstance, the question of how much cash the ordinary individual should keep in his house to prevent legal action emerges.

If the investigating agency recognizes you, you will be required to identify the source of the cash. You must have the relevant papers if you earned the money legitimately. You should also not be concerned if his Income Tax Return is done. If you are unable to identify the source, major investigative agencies such as the ED and CBI will prosecute you.

What are the consequences of being discovered with undeclared cash at home? According to the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), if you are unable to identify the source of money hidden at home, you may face a penalty of up to 137 percent.
