A Quick Guide to Saving Your Taxes

Do you expect your Company’s HR and Payroll Teams to save you tax?

We do too.

However, HR teams can only do what can be applied to most employees. Beyond that, we are individually responsible for our tax savings. This is difficult because we don’t know better. We may only complete the basic tax declarations at the end of the year to get some benefits.(E.g. PPF, Mediclaim etc)

This is the biggest mistake we, as an employed workforce, make!

If we took the time to understand how to manage our taxes – we could have between 10-20% more income – – and not just salary in-hand!

This works because when we get more money in-hand; that is, when our salary is less heavily-taxed, we have more in hand to invest. And when we invest, our money can grow and compound more!

Each person qualifies differently for tax-related savings.
Today, we will give you some easy-to-use tools on how to manage your tax so you can increase your in-hand income.

1. 80C*: Mediclaim is 25k for self + 25k for parents if they are not senior citizens, so a total of 50k
