  1. Rs 100000 out of your income ia tax free. Rs 100000 you will have to invest to get income tax relief. On rs 50000 you will have to pay tax.



  2. Computation of Total Income and Tax Thereon

    Your Total Income Rs.250000

    You can invest upto Rs.100000 to get
    the benefit of sec.80C (if invested) Rs.100000

    Taxable income Rs.150000

    Tax upto Rs.100000 NIL
    Next Rs.50000 Rs. 5000

    Total Tax Rs. 5000

    Add: Education cess @2% Rs. 100

    Total Tax Liability Rs. 5100

    Note: If you have taken any housing loan then the Interest on that borrowed capital would be treated as loss from house property and your income will come down to the extent of interst amount (maximum Rs.150000) and therefore your tax may be reduced.
