Awesome, Isn’t it?
Archit Gupta, Co-founder, ClearTax says, “Talking to customers about their finances, income and their tax planning gave us a lot of insight into how people think and behave in aggregate. We noticed that more men than women e-filed online with us.”
He adds, “Our team learnt that in aggregate, women spent significantly less time paying attention to tax planning and personal finance compared with men. Some of it was unfamiliarity, some of it was cost, and some of it was hesitation. Since their peers weren’t doing tax and financial planning, women were less likely to pay attention to this topic. Men on the other hand in aggregate saved more on their taxes via deductions even though taxation rates for men are higher in India.”
“The offer from ClearTax is an invite to all women professionals to take charge of their financial lives. They do not need to worry about paying the fees and can try ClearTax to easily file their returns and estimate their savings and taxes.”
ClearTax has done an awesome job by offering this scheme by helping and financially educating women in India. This will also help women to become independent while taking financial decisions.
