  1. if your employer does not have HRA component in salary, but you pay house rent, you can claim house rent deduction u/s 80GG. You/your spouse should not be owning a house in same city. You should also not be owning a property in some other city, which is shown self-occupied (no notional rent is added to income). Amount exemption is allowed to minimum of below figures:
    a. Rent amount paid - 10% of your total income
    b. Rs. 2,000 per month
    c. 25% of total income
  2. If your previous employer had HRA in your salary component and you did not show rent receipts to them, exemption for it cannot be taken now while filing income tax return.
  3. If your employer did not deduct TDS, you should compute yourself and pay tax.
  4. If total income tax payable after 31st march is less than 10000, no interest is payable under section 234B and 234C.
  5. For EPF tax-ability, read this answer:
