About HDFC Tax Saver Fund
This is an open-ended equity linked saving scheme with a statutory lock-in period of 3 years. HDFC Tax Saver Fund comes with twofold benefits of tax saving as well as wealth creation. This implies that your investments up to Rs.1.5 lakh will be eligible for deductions under Section 80C of the IT Act, 1961. The prime objective of this fund is capital appreciation or wealth creation with a portfolio consisting of 80 to 100% asset allocation in equity & equity related instruments.
With an equity driven portfolio, the scheme offers high returns over a long-term period from a reasonably diversified portfolio of mid-cap and large-cap companies. If you are willing to incorporate equity as an asset class in your investment portfolio, you can invest in this mutual fund using the SIP mode which is not just cost-efficient but also gives you the benefits of power of compounding and rupee cost averaging
Who should invest in this fund?
- As an ELSS, there is a 3-year lock-in period associated with this fund. Besides this, it is suggested that you must keep yourself invested for at least 5 to 7 years to get satisfactory returns. Thereby, investors with medium to long-term investment objectives should consider this scheme.
- If you are not sure about a long-term investment and may want to withdraw the money any sooner, avoid investing in this fund. Instead, you can invest in a good Liquid fund such as Axis Liquid Fund to enjoy easy liquidity.
- Investors who are not just seeking wealth creation but are interested in schemes that offer tax benefits can definitely opt for this scheme.
- Equity investments are riskier than debt or hybrid investments. Only those investors who have high-risk tolerance should invest in this fund.
Taxation- How is this fund taxed?
Investment returns from ELSS are taxed just like that from any other equity mutual fund scheme. However, since the units can’t be redeemed before 3 years of investment, only Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% above ₹1 lakh will be levied.
Let’s say, you have ₹2 lakh taxable income in a given financial year, and you decide to invest the amount in ELSS. ₹1.5 lakh out of this amount would be exempted from any taxation.₹50,000 would be taxed as per your income tax slab.
Now, if you have made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in this scheme, and withdraw the amount after the lock-in period ends, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹50,000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹5,000.
