  13. Hi,

    Thanks for putting together the updated income tax calculator for FY18-19. It is quite useful. One question, I am not able to find where the deduction for section 80 CCD(2) is captured in this. Is this missing from the calculator?

    • In most cases 80CCD(2) is not in Form 16 and hence it need not be added while calculating total income and also in the exemption. So had left out intentionally to avoid any confusion.

  14. Dear sir, downloaded income tax calculator shows standard deduction Rs.40000/-.

    Is it eligible for the FY 2017-18?

  15. I am a central gov employee under NPS

    Hi Amit,
    Actually I m salaried person having 9.5 lacs package. But I have taken an personal loan for my business startup but my hard luck the business was not in profit after three years. So that y I have taken personal loan. And I pay from salary 29 thousand another house hold appliances loan is also going on up to 12000.So total I pay 41 thousand per month. And tax is also deducted. So can you help me I this way

    • If your personal loan was taken for your business you can show that as business expense. But if the loan was for personal consumption, it won’t give tax benefit!
