13 August 2013  

Hello Everyone,

I am completely zero when it comes to Income tax or TDS so looking forward for some help and advice.

Basically i want to save the TDS deduction on salary

My Salary 18000/- per month

At the same time every month my company pays me Incentives(TIPS) that around 10000/- ( Credited into my Salary Account)

so my monthly income is 28000/- per month

Can you kindly tell me how to save the deduction of TDS from my salary and what type of investments i should have and how much i should invest. I dont want TDS to be Deducted from my salary.

My company has been giving me Form16, but i have never filed returns

Kindly help me

Thanks and regards

Carey

hi

 

You can avail exemtion of Travel Allw to the extent of Rs. 9600/ (800 p.m.) & Medical Reimb Rs. 15,000. Pl check with HR whetehr Medi Allowances is the same again which you can submit Medical Bills.

 

After deducting this your Taxable income is Rs. 3,11,400/- (336000- 9600-15000).

 

After deductiing 2 Lac exemption your net taxable income is Rs. 1,11,400.

 

So save on tax by Showing HRA, Investing in LIC & other instruments & obtaining Mediclaim Policy.

 

By showing rent of Rs. 3000/- pm. you can reduce taxable income by Rs. 25920/.

 

So remaining taxable income is Rs. 85,480/. which you can save by investing  in LIC & other instruments & obtaining Mediclaim Policy.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

YOu can also claim LTA if your salary has this component. According to my knowledge even if you dont have any LTA component you can claim it. LTA can be claim 2 times every four years block.

you can check the details on internet regarding LTA. For example, 2012 falls in the 2010-2013 block. It can be claim for Spouse , children ( not more than two) , dependent brother & Sister also.

 

THere are some condition of LTA exemption such as travel should be within the country, its only travel expense that is exemption food, sight seeing, hotel rent are not included.

Thanks
