After paying salary for 7 months, my employer could not pay salary for balance of FY 16-17 due to financial crunch. Till date, I have not received arrears of salary. From this April I switched my job and now I am regularly receiving salary from my new employer. Till now I have not filed return of income for FY 16-17. My CA insists that I shall pay tax now equivalent to TDS deductible while filing return. Now, do I have to pay tax even when I have not received salary, or do i have to pay tax when pending salary is received??
