Supreme Court Explains Entire Law On S. 14 A Dis allowance

Recent Supreme Court Judgment Explains Entire Law on Section 14A of the Income Tax Act 1961

Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Co Ltd vs. DCIT (Supreme Court – 08 May 2017) – S. 14A disallowance has to be made also with respect to dividend on shares and units on which tax is payable by the payer u/s 115-O & 115-R. Argument that such dividends are not tax-free in the hands of the payee is not correct. S. 14A cannot be invoked in the absence of proof that expenditure has actually been incurred in earning the dividend income. If the AO has accepted for earlier years that no such expenditure has been incurred, he cannot take a contrary stand for later years if the facts and circumstances have not changed.
