I moved to USA during the financial year Apr 2014 - Mar 2015, in which I was resident in India for more than 182 days due to which my status is "resident" in India for the tax year concerned. I understand, according to income tax law in India, my global income will be taxable in India, which means I will need to pay tax in India on my salary income in USA.
I know that federal income tax paid in USA will be considered towards tax paid and I get credit for that when computing tax amount for India. I have doubts for following two items:
- Social Security Tax
- U.S. State Income Tax
Are above two items exempt when computing taxable income in India for the year?
