From Tax Burden To Financial Mastery Naveen's Transformation With Taxbuddy
About the Case: Naveen's Tax-Saving Journey
Naveen, a resident of Mumbai, aimed to maximize wealth while minimizing tax burdens.
Naveen's portfolio included 4,000 equity shares of Reliance, originally valued at Rs. 4,000,000, yielding substantial profits. He also had 5,000 equity shares of Maize Ltd, initially acquired at Rs. 3,500,000 but eventually sold for Rs. 1,500,000, resulting in a loss.
Additionally, he held shares of Yes Bank, which were incurring unrealized losses due to their diminishing value.
How TaxBuddy Helped
Complex Taxation Rules:
Naveen faced complex taxation rules, especially concerning long-term capital gains. Taxbuddy's Tax Expert clarified that gains exceeding Rs. 100,000 were taxed at a 10% rate under Section 112A.
Tax Exemption Strategy: Taxbuddy recommended claiming the Section 112A exemption, making the first Rs. 100,000 of Naveen's long-term capital gains from Reliance shares tax-free, reducing his net gain to Rs. 3,900,000.
Offsetting Short-Term Losses: Naveen had short-term capital losses of Rs. 1,500,000 from Maize Ltd shares. Taxbuddy guided him on offsetting these losses against the long-term capital gain.
Effective Tax Reduction: Following Taxbuddy's advice, Naveen offset his losses, resulting in a net capital gain of Rs. 2,400,000 (Rs. 3,900,000 - Rs. 1,500,000), taxed at a reduced rate of 10%, leading to a tax liability of Rs. 240,000.
Naveen held 500 shares of XYZ Bank, initially purchased at Rs. 1,500 each.
The market value of these shares had fallen to Rs. 600,000, resulting in unrealized losses.
Taxbuddy's Tax Expert identified the unrealized losses as an opportunity to offset against capital gains, reducing Naveen's tax liability.
The Tax Experts advised Naveen on reinvesting the funds from the XYZ Bank shares to enhance his overall financial situation.
Diversifying Investments: Guided by Taxbuddy's expert advice, Naveen aimed to maximize his capital by diversifying his investments, selecting shares with growth potential for long-term returns.
Home Investment: Naveen contemplated buying a home. The Tax Expert recommended investing the long-term capital gain in purchasing or constructing a house property, leading to a full capital gain exemption of Rs. 24,00,000 under Section 54F of the Income Tax Act, 1961.
Section 112A Exemption: The Tax Expert educated Naveen on repeatedly benefiting from the Section 112A exemption of Rs. 100,000. By diversifying investments among family members, each could avail this benefit, effectively increasing tax savings.
