Tax Saving Advice 7 Strategies to Help You Save Money in the New Tax System

Tax Saving Advice:

Since the new tax regime was introduced in the 2020 budget, there are two tax regimes under which you should file your income tax return. You had a choice between the old and new tax regimes when it was first introduced, but as of Budget 2023, the new tax system is now the default. This implies that your income tax will be automatically filed under the new tax regime as a new taxpayer.

New Tax Period:

Preparing your taxes in advance will help you save money and minimize your taxes. Within a fiscal year, taxpayers can deduct a wide range of investments, savings, and expenses thanks to the Income Tax Act.

Since the 2020 budget introduced a new tax regime, there are two tax regimes under which you file your income tax return. The old and new tax regimes were available for selection at the time of launch; however, as of Budget 2023, the new tax system is now the default. In other words, as a new taxpayer, your income tax will be immediately filed under the new tax system.

Even while individuals prefer the outdated tax systems, there are still plenty of methods to save money under the more recent ones. With the recent budget adjustments, this has emerged as a compelling possibility.

Subtraction in the context of NPS

Payroll deduction for NPS payments made by employers is permitted under Section 80CCD(2). This perk is not available to independent contractors; only salaried staff members are eligible. Employers who have already made contributions to PPF and EPF funds are still eligible to make NPS contributions. The employer’s contribution may match or surpass the employee’s contribution.

Up to 14% of your employer’s pay (Basic+DA) may be claimed if you are employed by the central government. However, non-government workers may be eligible to receive up to 10% of their wage (Basic + DA).

The amount that your company contributes will be sent into your NPS account and taken out of your employee payslip. The combined employer contribution cap for NPS, superannuation, and PF is Rs 750,000.

Standard Subtraction

Under the new tax regime, a standard deduction of Rs 50,000 is permitted, regardless of tax slab.

House Loan

Up to Rs 1.50 lakh in Section 80C deductions are available for the entire annual income used for repaying the principal amount borrowed. Up to Rs 2 lakh per year, the interest component of a home loan is exempt from taxation under Section 24(b).

Additionally, you can deduct the entire interest component from your rental income if you rent out the newly purchased home. Losses, however, cannot be offset by income from other sources exceeding Rs 200,000.

Section 80EEA allows you to deduct an additional amount from your yearly tax liability if you are a first-time homeowner.

Section 80CCH(2) Agniveer Corpus Fund

Section 80CCH(2) will allow for the deduction of the amount that the central government and employees donate to the Agniveer Corpus Fund.

Pension For Family

The amount that the employer pays to the employee’s family in the event of the employee’s death is referred to as the “family pension”.

The family pension’s Section 57(iia) permits a deduction of Rs 15,000 or one-third of the employee’s income, whichever is less.

Conveyance Allowance

The exemption allowed would be Rs 1,600 per month starting in FY 2018–19 and Rs 3,200 per month for a physically challenged employee traveling from his home to his place of employment.


While some Section 10 exemptions were prohibited under the new tax laws, other exemptions such as leave encashment, gratuities under Section 10(10), and voluntary retirement plans are included in the new tax laws.
