  1. EL SS investment are best option for tax saving instrument or else 8% growth fund such as NSC,PF,5YEARS FD,are best bet.


  2. (1)Super funds

    sacrifice your salaries and wages into super funds, which just tax you 15%. otherwise, your salaries and wages will be taxed at marginal tax rate

    (2)Trust funds

    put your money into a trust and your kids are the beneficiaries. the trust will divide your money to your kids. so they can benefit from the tax free component.

    eg. you have $ 24000 and 4 kids. Normally you need to pay (24000-6000)X15%= $ 270 tax. If you put your money into a trust, the trust will divide the $ 24000 to your 4 kids with $ 6000 each. so no tax you need to pay.

    (3)capital market
    any loss from your investment can deduct your income

    Do I make sense?

    P.S. dont try to any tax evasion, penalties and imprisonment may apply. Avoid tax legally.
