Tax benefits on fixed deposits for senior citizens

In 2018, the union government provided for Section 80 TTB in the Income Tax Act for senior citizens. According to the provision, any taxpayer who is a resident senior citizen, aged 60 years and above at any time during a financial year, can claim Rs 50,000 as a deduction from the gross total income for the particular year of assessment. The income has to accrue from interest on bank deposits, including both savings and fixed, along with interest on deposits in a banking co-operative society and interest on post office deposits. Thus, with the insertion of this new clause in the Income Tax Act, senior citizens can claim a deduction of up to Rs 50,000 in their income earned from fixed deposits. A senior citizen has to submit Form 15H, a self-declaration form, at the time of receiving the interest amount from the financial institution, or at the time of filing annual return, to claim the tax-benefit under this provision of the Income Tax Act.
