I am a housewife and never filed income tax (I-T) return in the past as I did not have any income. Two months back, I received some money from my mother-in-law and invested the amount in equity mutual funds. I am not planning to sell the units before 3 years. Do I need to file the I-T return next year as I have invested in mutual funds even though I have no other income? If I have to, how do I file the return?
Nupur Biswas

If your income is nil or below the basic exemption limit, you are not required to file I-T return. Just because you have invested in mutual funds, you are not required to file return of income.

If the house in Haryana is held for less than 3 years, exemption under section 54 will not be available and the capital gains will be short-term capital gains chargeable to tax at 30% without indexation benefit.

I have an income tax HUF file, which I would like to close. In what proportion should I distribute the assets and liabilities of the HUF to members/Karta?
Rameshwar Jajoo

All the members of Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) have equal rights in the property of HUF. However, on total partition of the HUF, the assets and liabilities of the HUF may be distributed in the mutually agreeable manner between the Karta and the members. Any sum received by an individual as a member of HUF on the complete partition of the HUF will be exempted in the hands of the individual. Unequal distribution will not trigger any tax incidence in the hands of the members.
