How to plan your investments to provide taxes for the year

The best time to start planning your investments to provide tax is at the beginning of the fiscal year. Most taxpayers stall until the last quarter of the year and end up making quick decisions. Instead, if you plan at the beginning of the year, you can make investments that can also help you achieve your long-term goals. Tax-saving investments should be used to build wealth as well, not only to provide taxes.

Use the following indicators to plan your tax savings for the year:

  • Check the tax savings you are already making and can claim. This includes expenses, such as premium, tuition fees for children, Contribution of EPF, repayment of housing loans, etc.
  • This amount is deducted from $ 1.5 lakh to find out the amount of investment. There is no need to invest the full amount if the expenses are covered.
  • Choose your tax savings investments based on your goals and profile. ELSS, PPF, NPS, and fixed deposits are among the common options.

That way, you can figure out how much you need to invest to save taxes. It is best to start investing in the first quarter of the financial year so that you can distribute investments throughout the year. This will not affect you at the end of the year, and will also allow you to make informed investment decisions.
