Nobody likes paying taxes, but it's a necessary part of life. However, did you know that there are ways to lower your tax bill legally? One way to do this is by taking advantage of deductions and exemptions. In this blog, we will explain what these terms mean and how you can use them to lower your tax bill.

What Are Deductions?

Deductions are expenses that you can subtract from your taxable income, which reduces the amount of tax you owe. Some common deductions include:

  • Section 80C: This section allows you to claim deductions up to Rs. 1.5 lakhs for investments in schemes such as Public Provident Fund (PPF), Equity-Linked Saving Schemes (ELSS), and National Pension System (NPS).
  • Section 80D: This section allows you to claim deductions on the premium paid for health insurance policies for yourself, spouse, and dependent children. The maximum deduction limit is Rs. 25,000 per annum for policies covering yourself, spouse, and children, and an additional Rs. 25,000 for policies covering your parents.
  • Section 80TTA: This section allows you to claim deductions on the interest earned on savings accounts up to Rs. 10,000 per annum.
  • Home Loan Interest: You can claim deductions on the interest paid on your home loan up to Rs. 2 lakhs per annum. This deduction is available under Section 24.

What Are Exemptions?

Exemptions are income sources that are not taxable. Some common exemptions include:

  • HRA (House Rent Allowance): If you are a salaried employee and receive HRA as part of your salary, you can claim an exemption on the rent paid for your accommodation.
  • Leave Travel Allowance (LTA): This allowance covers expenses incurred while traveling with your family within India. You can claim an exemption on the amount spent on travel and accommodation.
  • Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) on Equity: If you hold equity shares or equity-oriented mutual funds for more than one year, the gains made on the sale of these assets are exempt from taxation.
  • Agricultural Income: Income earned from agricultural activities is exempt from taxation.

How to Claim Deductions and Exemptions?

To claim deductions and exemptions, you need to report them in your ITR. Ensure that you have all the necessary documents such as investment proofs, rent receipts, and medical bills to claim these deductions and exemptions.

Conclusion

By taking advantage of deductions and exemptions, you can lower your tax bill legally. However, it's important to note that there are limits to the amount of deductions and exemptions that you can claim. It's always a good idea to consult a tax professional to determine which deductions and exemptions are available to you and how you can use them to your advantage.
