Tax Benefits on Yes Bank Deposits

Tax Saver Deposits

Through Tax Saver Deposits, you can save taxes for five years on your deposits while earning the same interest as regular deposits. However, Tax Deductible at Source (TDS) will be applicable on the interest as per Income Tax Act if the interest exceeds Rs.40,000 in a financial year and or Rs.50,000 for senior citizen interest payable or reinvested per customer. TDS, as applicable, will be deducted from the principal amount if the accrued interest is not sufficient.  

To exempt TDS on interest earned, submit Form 15G or Form 15H (in case of senior citizens). It is only applicable till the amount on the form does not exceed the minimum tax exemption limit.
