Q-23. How to Save Tax on your Home Loan ? ?

BUYING A HOUSE

Owning a house is not just a dream but a necessity and there are several tax benefits as well. However, when buying a house, you would do well to consider the following…

(a)     Its always advisable to go in for a housing loan. Interest paid on home loans can be deducted from your  taxable income up to a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh. This can be doubled in the case of joint ownership. If the joint owners equally bear the interest  burden,  each gets a deduction up to Rs. 1.5 lakh. However, the total deduction cannot exceed the actual interest paid by the joint owners. So, if the total yearly interest liability is, say Rs. 4,05,000, and the property is equally owned by three people, then each gets a deduction of Rs 135,000.

(b)     Principal repayment upto Rs 1 lakh is allowed as a deduction from your taxable income u/s 80C, provided the loan is borrowed from a Nationalised Bank / Recognised financial institution.
