Tax optimization should always be a part of your financial planning exercise and not a task to be completed towards the end of the financial year. If you haven’t started with your tax planning, then plan now. Invest wisely, considering your financial goals. Risk-averse investors and those in lower tax brackets can look at tax-saving fixed deposits (FDs). Several banks have raised interest rates on tax-saving FDs after five consecutive repo rate hikes by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in 2022. Small finance banks and smaller and new private sector banks now offer rates up to 7.60 percent on tax-saving FDs, data compiled by BankBazaar shows.
Investments of up to Rs 1.5 lakh can be claimed for tax deduction under section 80C of the income tax act. Tax-saving FDs have a lock-in period of five years and premature withdrawals are not allowed.
