If you fall in the 30% tax bracket (i.e. if you earn > Rs 10 lakhs p.a.), that’s how much you can save if you invest in Tax Saving Mutual Funds or popularly known as Equity Linked Savings Schemes ( ELSS Funds )

That’s like Rs 45,000 of free money which you would have otherwise paid to the Government of India in taxes.

  • If you earn between Rs 2.5 to 5 lakhs, your tax slab is 10% and you can save ~ Rs 15,000 in taxes
  • If you earn between Rs 5 to 10 lakhs, your tax slab is 20% and you can save ~ Rs 30,000 in taxes
