Albert Einstein once rightly said that “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.” One of the displeasures of growing up and earning is the burden of taxes. There are weird taxation laws around the world. There were times when houses were taxed depending on the number of windows in a house. There were even taxes on beards. Today even without all these strange taxes, the amount we pay as taxes exceeds the peak of Mount Everest!
What if we tell you that there are certain ways to reduce the amount of taxes paid? Investment in schemes like mutual funds, bonds and stocks can help to save taxes. Section 80C provides a provision to deduct taxes for the premium paid on life insurance. Health insurance premiums can save taxes up to Rs. 20,000.
Restructuring the salary will also help in reducing the amount of tax to be paid. Equity-linked savings scheme will help to gain tax benefits. They also offer maximised returns.
