What is Tax Planning?
Tax planning is the analysis of one’s financial situation from a tax efficiency point of view so as to plan one’s finances in the most optimized manner. Tax planning allows a taxpayer to make the best use of the various tax exemptions, deductions and benefits to minimize their tax liability over a financial year. Tax planning is a legal way of reducing income tax liabilities, however caution has to be maintained to ensure that the taxpayer isn’t knowingly indulging in tax evasion or tax avoidance.
Types of Tax Planning:
- Purposive tax planning: Planning taxes with a particular objective in mind
- Permissive tax planning: Tax planning that is under the framework of law
- Long range and Short range tax planning: Planning done at the start and end of a fiscal year respectively.
