RD Interest Rate Calculator

Income Tax on Recurring Deposit Interest

  • RD’s interest income is taxed at tax rate applicable to the deposit account holder. So, depending upon your tax bracket, out of the 10% that your bank pays on your deposit, you may have to pay up to 33.99% of that to the government for it to run the country. You can always contribute more to the native land by donating some more.
  • Interest on deposits is to be taxed on an accrual basis and not a receipt basis. Say, you make cumulative deposit for 5 years with a bank and hence will receive interest only at the end of five years. Still, you must pay tax on the accrued interest for each of the years in that year itself.

How is Interest on RD Calculated?

Most of the banks calculate compounded RD interest quarterly. To calculate compound interest on RD, you can use the formula as mentioned below:

M = P*(1+R/N)^Nt

Where

M = Maturity amount.

P = Principal amount of investment

R = Interest rate in decimal( You can convert RD interest rate into a decimal by dividing it by 100

T = Time duration( Months)

t = Time duration( Years)

N= compounding frequency (since it is quarterly, it will be 4)

If you want to save yourself from complex calculations, you can also use an online RD calculator provided on the page.

Tax Deduction (TDS) on RD Interest

  • Earlier no tax was deducted on recurring deposit. With effect to 1st June, 2015, recurring deposits are subject to TDS (tax deducted at source) as per the income tax laws. TDS on RD would be deducted at the rate of 10%. However, no TDS would be deducted if the interest income earned does not exceed ₹ 10,000 in a financial year.
  • Tax is to be paid as per applicable slabs at the time of filing income tax return. If you have submitted Form 15G (in case of normal citizens) and 15H (in case of senior citizen) in the bank, your TDS will not be deducted (in case your total taxable income doesn’t come under tax slab).
