Ease Your Tax Burden - Invest Now


An small investor (and tax payer) is one who manages his finances in such a way that the TDS is just equal to the tax he is supposed to pay for a particular year. You need to balance your needs based on need for liquidity in hand, investment returns and tax savings.

Every individual get more tensed in the month of February /March every year as in this month when they feels like they are being subject to extortion in form of Tax Deduction at Source or Advance Tax. And advised if not want to pay tax then go to invest in tax saving investments.
There could be moments when you feel that you have paid too much of taxes or too much of tax has been deducted from your salary. So to avoid such situation one should start planning their taxes from the beginning of the year itself so that you don’t end your year by paying more taxes.
When the employer deducts tax at source, more particularly, during last two months, as he would like to avoid defaults on his part, to save on interest and penalties, he shall consider all your investments which give you tax deductions or savings. While deducting tax at source, he shall consider investments such as in
Insurance premium,
Provident fund contributions,
National saving certificates,
Investment in pension plans,
ULIPs, Mediclaim etc.
Not only this, he shall also consider certain amounts spent by you on specified items and on your health such as 
Tuition fee of children (80C), 
Repayment of principal amount of home loan (80C),
Medical expenses (80D, 80DD), 
Expenses on specified illnesses (80DDB) (upto Rs. 40,000 and Rs. 60,000 for senior citizens (Rs 1,00,000 wef A.y 2019-20) and for super senior citizen Rs 80,000 from A.y 2016-17 to 2018-19 ( Rs 1,00,000 from A.y 2019-20)
Any amount of interest paid on educational loan (80E) etc.
Donations made to specified eligible funds etc are also eligible for allowance (100% or 50% depending upon type of donation.
Employer is also supposed to consider your house rent receipts but may ask for landlord’s PAN number also.
You can plan you taxes including TDS by integrating your tax planning and investment planning. The investments you make should also have a tax saving objective. If choosing between two options with similar returns and safety features, tax saving would play an important role. In such situations, investments like housing, provident funds, insurance, equity linked saving options etc. can give you some relax feeling.

However, if tax has been deducted in absence of investment or forget to inform the Deductor in time (like bank etc), and your tax liability does not arise as per your income details or tax deduction becomes more than actual tax liability, you should not worry much as it is now mandatory for tax payers to quote then bank account number and details in the return itself which makes refunds faster, safer and hassle free.

Why We Need Health Insurance ?

Why-health-insurance-is-very-important-for-everyone?Mostly people asks when a insurance agent offer health insurance policy to a person that why they need health insurance policy for him or their family members.

Here I shall discuss, Why health insurance is very important for everyone even if they are financially strong?

Answer are very simple, every one knows it though they like to ignore, like if we close our eyes, problem can not find us. 

Few points are here : 
  • People are saving money for their Future Goals, 

  • Savings do not happen in a day or in a month, It takes YEARS, 

  • Life is very UNCERTAIN and DISEASES are a part of that uncertainty.


When DISEASE comes, it spoils all FUTURE PLANNING because it COSTS HIGH especially Critical illnesses like,  
  •  Cancer: 5 Lakh and more 

  •  Heart Ailments : 3 Lakh to 8 Lakh or more, 

  • Kidney Issues: 5 Lakh to 15 Lakh or more, 

  • Liver Failure: 5 Lakh to 15 Lakh or more,


These diseases are DANGEROUSLY increasing in India now a days due air pollution, living habits, diet we take are infected. 

Remember every People are not that much FINANCIALLY STRONG to spend 5 Lakh to 15 Lakhs easily at a go...

Mostly during illness people might have to sell their PROPERTY, GOLD and OTHER VALUABLES or dig deep into their savings to meet these medical needs.

People also end up BORROWING money from others, sometime at higher Rate of Interest.

But HEALTH INSURANCE helps to SAVE hard earned money by just paying some REASONABLE PREMIUM,

BUY  HEALTH INSURANCE STAY CONFIDENT and PROTECT YOUR WEALTH.

Because There's nothing more important than a good health. That's our principal Capital Asset.
