Sample Filled Form 15G for PF Withdrawal in 2022

Form 15G is a self-declaration to declare that the total income in a financial year is less than the income tax slab limit. It should be filled by the citizens of India whose age is ≤ 60 years. If the age is above 60 years then they have to submit form 15 H in place of form 15G. By submitting form 15G we can avoid TDS on PF withdrawals and fixed deposit interest

When it comes to PF withdrawal if the total PF amount ( employee + employer share) is above 50,000 Rs and the total service is below 5 yrs then that EPF member should submit form 15G along with PF claim form 19.

If EPF members fail to submit Form 15G then 34.6% tax will deduct from their PF claim amount (or) sometimes EPF officials will reject the EPF claim.

EPF members whose age is below 60 years need to submit Form 15G and for above 60 years form 15H is required.

Form 15G is not required If your PF amount is less than 50,000 Rs (or) the total service is above 5 years.

    • If you are not eligible for form 15G then you don’t need to upload it. The form 15G submission option is visible to everyone but only eligible candidates have to submit it.
      (If your total PF amount is more than 50,000 Rs and service is less than 5 yrs then only you need to submit form 15g).
