DelhiDesk Tax-saving fixed deposits (FDs) provide tax benefits to investors under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, allowing them to deduct up to Rs. 1.5 lakh from their annual taxes. However, the interest earned on these FDs is taxable as per the investor’s income tax slab rate. Tax-saving FDs have a five-year lock-in term and do not permit premature withdrawals, making them unsuitable for investors who need liquidity or want to invest for a shorter period. Before investing, investors should consider factors such as the reputation of the bank or financial institution, interest rates, lock-in period, tax benefits, penalties for premature withdrawal, interest payout frequency, nomination, documentation, joint account, and reinvestment option. Investors should plan their investments according to their financial goals and risk appetite while keeping these factors in mind.
