"Rule 3: Take Full Advantage Of Tax Deductions"

Various tax deductions are available under the I.T. Law. One should try to avail of the benefit of these deductions for each and every member of the family. The various investment options that offer tax rebates should be reviewed keeping in mind various aspects like the age factor, etc. A check-list should be prepared of the various deductions permissible under the Income Tax Law (See Chapter X). Check whether each and every tax paying family member is claiming these. If special care is taken of this aspect, then it is legally possible to save a lot of income tax.

It is suggested that a chart be prepared of tax, deductions and exemptions for every family member for purposes of overall tax planning of the family. It would be worthwhile if a group tax chart is prepared containing details relating to income tax, tax deductions, net taxable income, tax deducted at source, rebate of tax, and, finally, the net amount of income tax paid in the case of each family member. With the help of this one simple chart, you can achieve substantial tax planning as it will show up those who have not made optimum use of tax deductions.


TAX DEDUCTIONS


Tax payers now enjoy straight deduction in terms of Section 80C in respect of stipulated investments and expenditure to the tune of ` 1.5 Lakh. Moreover, such investment can be made in any single stipulated item, or a combination of the stipulated avenues of investment. Similarly, within the above limit the investment can also be made in Pension Plans in terms of Section 8OCCC. .
