What you can do with this tool?

By just providing your monthly pay/pension as on March-2011 you can come to know Gross Total Income.

You can try to reduce your Income Tax liability by keeping your savings and deductions at optimum level. This income Tax tool will help you in finding out the the said optimum level of savings and deductions.  The following illustrations will show how you can find out the optimum saving and deductions.

Illustration 1:

Except contribution of Government in NPS, all savings such as GPF, PPF, NSC etc  under Section 80C, CCC, CCD etc., would attract the restriction of Rs. 1 lakh under Section 80CCE.  So you can use this tool to estimate the sum of all these savings so that you can restrict the investment in the same to Rs. 1 lakh, unless you have any other reason to invest in these schemes.

Illustration 2:

You can plan the amount for yearly premium of Health Insurance.  The employees in service can get deductions at source at the maximum of Rs.35,000/- (Rs.15,000 for self and Rs.20,000 for parents)

Likewise, following income tax provisions allow deductions.  This online tool can be used by entering varied amounts of deductions in the relevant fields to estimate the optimum amount of deductions you can make in order to pay lowest possible income tax.  

Savings/Deductions under Chapter VI-A:

  • Section 80C (Amount paid towards life insurance premium, contributions in GPF, CPF, PPF, NPS, NSS etc, tuition fees, payment, Housing Loan principal repayment)
  • Section 80CCC (Deduction in respect of contributions to certain pension funds)
  • Section 80CCD (Deduction in respect of contributions to pension scheme of Central Government)

Note: Section 80CCE restricts aggregate amount of deduction under section 80C, 80CCC and 80CCD to one lakh rupees). The subscribers in New Pension Scheme (NPS) are allowed to deduct the entire government contribution in NPS without any ceiling. In the last year (financial year 2010-11) Government contribution in NPS was also subjected to Rs. one lakh restriction under Section 80 CCE. This is really a welcome change.

  • Section 80D (Deduction in respect of Medical Insurance Premium) (Max. Rs. 20,000/- for Senior Citizens & Rs. 15,000/- for others).
  • Deductions under Sec. 80D for Health Insurance of parents. (Max. Rs. 20,000/- if parents are Senior Citizen, otherwise Rs. 15,000/-).
  • Section 80DD (Deduction in respect of maintenance including medical treatment of dependent who is a person
  • with disability- Maximum amount- Rs. 1 lakh)
  • Section 80DDB (Deduction in respect of medical treatment. Maximum amount – Rs.40,000)
  • Section 80E (Deduction in respect of interest on loan taken for higher education)
  • Section 80G (Deduction in respect of donations to certain funds, charitable institutions, etc.)
  • Section 80GG (Deduction in respect of rents paid subject to ceiling if HRA not received)
  • Section 80GGA (Deduction in respect of certain donations for scientific research or rural development)
  • Section 80GGC (Deduction in respect of contributions given by any person to political parties)
