Frequently Asked Questions
What is Tax Credit?
Tax credit is tax saving that you can get on your income tax for the year if you invest in Pension Schemes. This facility can be availed by both salaried and self-employed individuals in accordance with the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001.
Investment in Pension Schemes:
The maximum tax benefit that an individual can get is up to 20% of his or her annual taxable income times his or her tax rate.
The amount of tax credit that you can get on an investment in Pension schemes is dependent on:
a) The amount of investment you make.
b) Your annual taxable income.
The amount of tax credit you are entitled to will be adjusted from your payable annual income tax thus giving you an overall tax saving.
For example, if you are a salaried individual and your annual taxable income for the year is Rs.4,000,000; your average tax rate will be 13.62%. If you invest, let’s say Rs. 800,000 in a Pension scheme, you will be entitled to a tax credit of Rs.109,000/-
Is there any condition on getting tax credit?
In case of Pension schemes, there is no holding period requirement as such. However, if you withdraw any amount from your investment held in a Pension scheme before minimum retirement age criteria as per VPS Rules, 2005, then a tax penalty will be charged, which will be equivalent to your average tax rate of last 3 years.
