2. Right Investments

If your salary is more than 5 Lakhs per annum, you will be required to pay tax to the government. Making appropriate investment decisions will help you save tax in India and I will be sharing my knowledge on the same. There are certain Government run schemes which will help you legally save tax on your income and you must invest in them for the same goal. Please find the list of these schemes below:

  • Public Provident Fund (PPF)
  • Employee’s Provident Fund (EPF)
  • Home Loan
  • Long-Term Capital Gains
  • Donations

3. Health Insurance

Health Insurance is an investment that you can make which will help you in a two-fold way. The first way is that it will financially aid you in times of medical emergency. You can get yourself and your family covered so that you always have financial aid ready in such a case. Also, it will help you save on tax by sharing the amount of premium you pay for the same.

4. File Income Tax Returns

An individual or an organisation is required to file ITR by the end of 31st July of every year or by the date shared by the Income Tax Department. In case you fail to do it, a penalty is imposed on the taxpayer. It would be great if you always file your ITR on time while paying all the taxes you are supposed to pay legally.

5. Tax Regimes

There are two tax regimes where one is a new one and the other one is an old one. The new tax regime offers you lower tax rates while there won’t be any allowed deductions whereas the old tax regime can offer you tax deductions on high tax rates. While you are filing your taxes, make sure to pick the one that suits your needs.

6. Expense Management

If you are subject to tax audits, then you must maintain a proper book of accounts as well as manage cash flow. It will ensure that you have a proper record of revenue and expenses which can be shown to the Income Tax Department anytime they would like to review it. It will keep you away from any kind of unwanted fines, penalties and other punishments.
