Union Budget 2015-16: 5 Tax Expectations From The Finance Minister

Today, every person is worried about saving income tax, by making the right tax saving investment within the last 2 months of the financial year. As per the income tax act established in 1961, every person in India whose annual income crosses the maximum exemption limit will have to pay income tax. Every person has to pay income tax to the state and central government.

There are two types of income tax:

  1. Direct Tax: Direct tax is a tax that is directly collected from the taxpayer. For instance: wealth tax, income tax, etc.
  2. Indirect Tax: Indirect tax is paid by the third party i.e. VAT tax, service tax. Service tax is mainly charged to the individual. For example, if an item price is Rs 150, then its last price would be Rs 110 after VAT and this extra price of Rs 10 will be paid by the person.

Tips to save your tax:

  1. Insurance: Buy an insurance plan to save income tax.
  2. House rent: If you are staying on rent then, you can add the rent to take the rebate on income tax.
  3. Travelling expenses: If you are using your own vehicle, then you can show the travelling expenses to take the rebate on income tax.
