Brilliant Tax Planning with House Property income

Tax on Property Income
Income Tax Act divides your income into five different heads. One of them is ‘income from house property’. It is the rent earned on the property(s) owned by you. Good news! You don't have to pay tax on the entire rental income, but only on a part of the same.

But before we get into that... the word 'house' is a misnomer as "property" covered under ‘income from house property’ comprises any building (house, office building, godown, factory, hall, shop, auditorium, etc.) and / or any land attached to the building (e.g. compound, garage, garden, car parking space, playground, gymkhana, etc.).

Loan against Gold is a smart idea

Use your gold jewellery in emergency
Loan against gold ornaments / jewellery is any day a better alternative than personal loans or credit cards. The obvious reason is the interest cost (and in the bargain you would also save on the paperwork and your precious time).

Personal loans and credit cards can cause extensive damage to your finances with interest charges being normally around 18-36% per annum. The cost of gold loans, on the other hand, would be comparatively much more palatable at around 15-20% p.a.

Blunders in filing Income Tax returns can invite I.T. Notice

IT Return : File it Right
The unpleasant and repulsive annual ritual of filing Income Tax returns is upon us. With July 31st, the last date of filing tax returns, approaching fast many of us must be experiencing elevated blood pressure levels and sleepless nights.

Howsoever obnoxious the task may be, we have to make sure that we avoid repeating the blunders commonly made by many taxpayers. I am sure you don't want to receive the Income Tax notice and go through the whole rigmarole again.

Do your Tax Planning NOW

Tax Planning...Earlier the Better
The budget for the current financial year has been announced. You are now aware of the new tax provisions. Since there have been many changes, you need to revise your tax planning strategy accordingly.

Oh, I guess I made a wrong statement... few people do an intelligent tax planning.

Most people rush to complete their tax saving formalities at the year end, when their employers fix a deadline to furnish the proof of their investments.
