1 2BB – Download Form 12BB as a Word, Excel or PDF file- All Employees to file Declaration under Form 12BB to claim deduction for savings under Section 80 C, payment of house loan interest under Section 24, and HRA exemption under Section 10
The Finance Act, 2015 had introduced section 192(2D) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the Act) wherein the person responsible for making payment of salary (employer) was obliged to collect the necessary evidence or proof in the prescribed form and manner to allow any claim for any deduction and/or tax saving investments. However, the relevant rules and form were yet to be prescribed. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has come out with the relevant rules1 and also prescribed the form i.e. Form 12BB, in which salaried employees would now be required to furnish evidence of claims and tax saving investments to the employer.



Till Finance Act 2016, there was no standard format for salaried employees for filing declaration with their employer to claim deduction for savings under Section 80 C, payment of house loan interest under Section 24, and HRA exemption under Section 10. In the absence of single declaration form, employees had to submit proof for each investment made in the year.

As a relief to employees and also to employer, Income Tax Department has introduced a new Form 12BB. This form, applicable from June 1, 2016, will act as a single entity that you can use to declare your to claim deduction for savings under Section 80 C, payment of house loan interest under Section 24, and HRA exemption under Section 10.
