I am sharing some of basics of tax saving tips gained from my last 10 years of practice with income tax.
You should have basic knowledge of how income tax works in India.

Every year this act changes with the outcome of Budget.
I have summarized the Income Tax saving tips as follows:
- Be updated of changes in Income Tax Act, 1961. You may subscribe CAquery.com for latest updates on income tax.
- Be familiar with the latest Income tax slab applicable for you and check that if your income exceeds the minimum amount not chargeable to tax.
- File you income tax return on time to avoid interest & penalty.
- Check in which head, income earned by you falls so that you can claim proper exemption. Suppose if you have sold your house and earned capital gain, you should know that such earning falls in under Capital Gain Head so that you could claim capital gain exemption listed under section 54 to 54G.
