- Normally, income earned in a previous year gets taxed in its assessment year.
- However, in certain cases, where income is not disclosed by the taxpayer but is detected by the Income Tax department and the source for which is not satisfactorily explained by the assessee to the Assessing Officer, it is deemed to be the income of the year in which it is so detected.
Cash Credits [Section 68]
Where any sum is found credited in the books of the assessee and the assessee offers no explanation about the nature and source or the explanation offered is not satisfactory in the opinion of the Assessing Officer, the sum so credited may be charged as income of the assessee of that previous year.
