Keep reading to clear all your doubts on salary related income tax.

In India, income tax deduction by employers on the salary of employees is done mandatorily. The employer needs to deduct the applicable amount of income tax based on the estimated income of the employee and deposit the same with the government.

As this tax is deducted by the income provider, income tax paid at source can also be called TDS (Tax Deducted at Source).

The government provides tax exemption (under Section 80C and 80D) which allows a person to apply for exemption on tax that is based on the kinds of investment he has made in that financial year. We can begin by subtracting the exemption amount from total annual earnings.

It is important for the employee to get a declaration and proof from individuals to approve tax exemption. The categories mentioned below are applicable for exemption:

● House Rent Allowance – If an employee pays rent for accommodation and is entitled to HRA from the employer, the employee can declare this amount for tax-exemption
● Conveyance or Travel Allowance – This can be declared for tax-exemption if the employee is provided with the travelling allowance
● Medical Allowance – This is applicable when the employee produces medical bills for tax exemption
