  • Tax on Recurring Deposit Interest Rates

    If you are looking for a way to invest small amounts every month as opposed to investing a lump sum amount at once, recurring deposits are your answer. Recurring deposits are term deposits that let you deposit a sum of money every month for a fixed period of time, giving you interest rates that are similar to what you earn on fixed deposits.

    To open a recurring deposit account with any bank, you need to have a savings account with the bank whose recurring deposit scheme you have chosen. You can deposit the money in your savings account, which will be deducted every month by the bank and transferred to the recurring deposit account

    TDS on Recurring Deposit

    Similar to most personal savings instruments and fixed deposit, recurring deposits to, attract tax. However, recurring deposits attract TDS, better known as Tax Deducted at Source. TDS is also known as the income tax which is applicable for Indian citizens, under The Income Tax Act of 1961. These laws stay the same, except minor amendments and adjustments in the taxation slab.

    Income Tax on Recurring Deposit Amount

    The money that is invested in a recurring deposit every year, will be counted as a part of the yearly income of the investor. A TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) of 10 percent is deducted on the interest you earn on your recurring deposit. The TDS is not deducted if the interest you earn on your recurring deposit is up to Rs.10,000. The TDS will be 20 percent, if you fail to provide the PAN information to the bank.

    If their income falls under the non-taxable income slab, they still have to submit the Form 15G to be taxed for both fixed and recurring deposits.

    Form 15G Form 15H and Form 16A

    Form 15G is a must if you want to save taxation on your income. However, From 16A is a form that is filled and provided to you by your employer, who deducts the TDS from your income. Note, that regardless of being eligible for TDS on your income, you will be provided with the Form 16A. Also, keep it in mind that the Form 15G is applicable for people who are under 60 years of age. Form 15H is a similar form for ITR submission, like Form 15G, but is only meant for people who are 60 years and over (senior citizens).

    Recurring Deposit Tax Exemption

    There are certain instruments that are categorized as recurring deposit with income tax exemption, although rare. People do look for tax saving recurring deposits to make sure that their savings are not wasted. Unfortunately, very restricted amount of information is available on recurring deposit interest is taxable or not.

    Tax Exemption on Post Office Recurring Deposit Scheme

    Tax exemption for your recurring deposit is only possible if you invest in RD with India Post. It should also be at least a 5-year scheme. This is possible under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act of 1961. The maximum taxable deduction can be for Rs. 1,00,000 which will all the savings investments that are eligible for tax deduction under Section 80C.

    For Example – Say you earn an interest of Rs.20, 000 on your recurring deposit for a year and your annual income is Rs.3, 00, 000. This means you are liable to pay an income tax of 10 percent on Rs.50, 000 (No tax up to Rs.2.5 Lakhs), which amounts to Rs.5000 and TDS of Rs.2000 is deducted on the interest earned on your recurring deposit. So, at the end of the year you have to pay Rs.3000 to the government as income tax. The bank will give you a TDS certificate proving that you have paid the Rs.2000 to the government already.
