Hi Guys,

I was come to US for a short term and company is paying per dium for my onsite expenses. However my company told me that you keep all your bills safe so that you can claim for income Tax relief in India. Some of friends told me that there is no tax for per dium, is that true?
Money was uploaded to my travelling card from India only, so it taxable for me?? Please share your thoughts. Thanks a lot.

As per my knowledge what ever money(savings) you bring back to India after your expenditure is taxable.

Per-diem income is taxable income in the USA. Keeping receipts on per-diem expenses is good because the expenses may be deductible against that income.

If you're paying US income tax, chances are fairly good that you'll be able to deduct them against taxes payable in India, because getting taxed twice on the same income isn't generally considered to be a good idea, though it does happen sometimes to a greater or lesser degree.

It's a good idea to consult tax professionals local to the municipalities where you incur the tax liabilities. They'll be familiar with not only national, but state and local requirements. But make sure you choose someone who also understands foreign tax effects.
