Make use of the Tax Harvesting to reduce tax liability
Make the most of tax-loss harvesting to reduce your tax liability.
What is Tax harvesting? An act of booking unrealised losses to effectively reduce the realised gains and, hence, reducing the tax payable.
What Should you do? If you have realised capital gains on which you need to pay taxes, you can reduce your tax outgo by selling any holdings that are in losses before 31 March. At present, short-term capital gains tax is levied at 15 per cent on stocks sold before 1 year of investments.
Though booking a loss is painful because we are all loss averse & we instinctively try to avoid losses. However, booking of some losses now will benefit you for the following:-
1. Reduce your STCG & hence taxes.
2. This reduction in taxes can add up in the long run and lead to better portfolio returns.
3. Get rid of duds in your portfolio.
