Hi team ,

I have started working from jul2019 and I have filed my tax return for 2020 and 2021 tax years.


However I note that there was withholding of some amount in 2017-2018 and 2019 tax years ( withholding from comission received from insurance commission from lic and United india)

I have not filed 2017, 2018, 2019 return as my total income was less than threshold

Is it possible to file return for 2017 , 2018, 2019( all r in refund) now without paying any penalty?

Hi guys,
My situation - I am currently on my notice period and am set to join Company A in 3 weeks. Just this week, I got an offer from another company (substantially high pay and at an international location of choice). The problem is that in order to get the visa etc., it'll take atleast 4 more weeks. Should I immediately call up company A and tell them that I can't join? Or should I wait for my visa to come and things to get official before I do that.

Received an offer today…really like the company and role but,
They offered me less than what I’m making now, I’m currently fully remote and this role would be hybrid, meaning I would have increased gas costs and clothing costs as well.
The positives are that they pay for relocation and offered a 10k sign-on bonus (although I would have to pay back if I leave before two years).
I have other potential offers coming as soon as next week. Thoughts on what I should do?
