This article is tied in with asserting deduction on interest under Section 8oTTA. On the whole, what is 80TTA?
Section 80TTA gives a deduction of Rs 10,000 on interest income. This deduction is accessible to an Individual and HUF.
• From an investment account with a bank
• From an investment account with a co-usable society carrying on the matter of banking
• From an investment account with a mail station
This deduction isn’t allowed on interest earned on time deposits. As the Term Deposits mean deposits repayable on expiry of fixed periods of time. It will not be allowed for –
• Interest from fixed deposits
• Interest from repeating deposits
• Any other term deposits
Most extreme Deduction – The greatest deduction is restricted to Rs 10,000. On the off chance that your interest income is not as much as Rs 10,000, the whole interest income will be your deduction. In the event that your interest income is more than Rs 10,000, your deduction will be constrained to Rs 10,000. (You need to consider your absolute interest income from all banks where you have accounts).
The most effective method to guarantee the deduction – First include your complete interest income under the head ‘Income from Other Sources’ in your Return. The deduction appears under section 80 Deductions under section 80TTA.
