The Budget has made no significant change for Tax Rates for Individuals. The Individuals who earn income of Less than 5 Lakhs rupees will get Rs 5000/- as Tax rebate under section 87A. There is increase insurcharge on income tax levied on individuals earning income of Rs 1 crore or more from 12 per cent at present to 15 per cent. This move is aimed at taxing the rich. The Middle Class always pay effective more tax including indirect taxes and have to plan their retirement and savings at the same time save on overall tax outgo. The Article gives you brief idea on how to save tax and at the same time make proper investment and cover insurance and Medical expenses risk.

 

  1. Investment in 80C for Purpose of taking full benefit of 1.5 Lakhs

Deduction under 80C is related to deduction that an individual can deduct from his gross taxable income in order to reduce his tax liability by investing in specified investment. It is applicable to individuals and HUF. An assessee can get deduction under section 80C upto a maximum of Rs.150000.The qualifying investments and expenditure as deduction under 80C are investment in Insurance Policy, Post Office Time Deposit Account, Investment in Equity Linked Saving Scheme (Mutual Funds), Public Provident Fund, National Saving Certificate (Read Article Why to invest in National Saving Certificate ?), Tuition Fees Paid, Bank Fixed Time Deposit, Repayment of Principal of Housing Loan, SukannyaSamriddhi account, to Read more about  Deduction under section 80C of Income Tax Act - Specified investment / Expenses Click here.

 

2.Investment in National Pension Scheme up to Rs 2 Lakhs

 

Finance Minister ArunJaitley in Budget 2015-16 introduced an additional income tax deduction of Rs. 50,000 for contribution to the New Pension Scheme (NPS) under Section 80CCD. NPS is a voluntary pension scheme, which is regulated by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority.This extra deduction of Rs. 50,000 on NPS will increase the total deduction allowed under Section 80C and 80CCD of Income Tax Act to Rs. 2 lakh. In Budget 2016, the finance minister has made withdrawals from NPS on maturity tax free upto 40% of the total corpus accumulated. Currently, none of the withdrawals were tax-free unlike other competing instruments such as PPF and EPF where the total withdrawal was tax -free. This is a major step towards making the NPS scheme more attractive and bringing it on par with the other EEE pension schemes. The Budget 2016 proposes to provide a uniform tax treatment to the recognised provident fund, national pension system and superannuation fund. 
It is proposed that 40% of the pension wealth received by an employee from the National Pension System Trust shall be exempt.

@ Temporary. It is most practical and applied by most of organization and employees to save tax in most effective way! As one size do not fit every one in tax planning too, my suggestion are general and cannot apply in each and every case! However Majority have benefited from above planning !

If anone who is earning 6.5 lakhs yearly.who has brought a property of 50 lakhs with the help of his siblings at the cost of 40lakhs.investment will be 50% and 25 % and 25 % each. Then they should pay the tax for the remaining 10 laks which they have got as a profit from the seller. Actual cost of land as per government is 50 lakhs but the seller is sold at 40 lakhs for his requirements and the taxes are paid for 50 lakhs to the government as per rules. Or they should show this as income in their Form 16 in the returns.

Wef from 1st June 16, we need to give bills for LTA exemption. We also need to pay mediclaim premium for deduction. Same with mobile reimbursement and medical bills reimbursement. Plus in most of companies, LTA and medical bills are over and above CTC. Also if I invest (or spend) this much, my disposable income would be around 3 lacs. Considering I have a housing loan of 30L, EMI would be around 25- 30K. So how do I survive? Investing in 80c and NPS will block money for at least 5 yrs. So how to strike balance?
