Let`s dive deep into this issue and understand in depth why we need rental income: if the above criteria are met, the lowest of the amounts calculated below is allowed under Article 80GG: some workers may demand to stay in rent-for-rent housing, even if their employer does not pay them HRA by their salary. HRA or home rental allowance is the most common allowance the employee receives. Those who live off rent can maximize tax savings through HRA. There is an old CBDT circular that mentions that if the monthly rent is less than 3000, no rental receipt is required. Samiksha can make a kind gesture with her parents while saving taxes. Her parents must report the rent she paid on their income tax returns. However, as a family, you can save a lot. b) The actual rent paid each year at more than 10% of the annual salary People who live with their parents can pay their parents` rent and save taxes on HRA. c. You, your spouse or minor child or HUF of which you are a member, do not have a dwelling in the place where you currently reside, if you perform office or employment functions, or where you carry on business or trades.
Authorised persons claiming an exemption or exemption from the HRA under Article 80GG can thus avoid some of their hard-earned money from being devoured by tax. The eligibility criteria to benefit from the HRA exemption are as follows: those who receive HRA and reside in rented accommodation can apply for an exemption. Let us look at the conditions for benefiting from such a derogation. If you have taken a house for rent and make a payment of more than Rs 1 Lakh per year, consider providing the owner`s PAN. Otherwise, you may lose the HRA exception. Owners without PAN must be ready to make you a statement on Circular No. 8/2013 of 10 October 2013. ii. The individual lives on rent, but is not paid by salary. Save taxes as a family – By filing and paying rental receipts, you can apply for an exemption from the HRA.
Your parents can deduct property taxes and claim a standard 30% deduction on rental income. If they are in a lower tax class than yours, the family as a whole can save taxes. If they are over 60, they also benefit from a higher minimum income exemption (Rs.3 Lakh for those over 60 and Rs.5 Lakh for those over 80). . . .
