Salary Split with Wife's Name, will it benefits?

Hello Sir,

I am salaried person in one of IT firm. Assume that my salary currently 70,000/- p.m. and am taking the same. After 1 month there will be increment and it will reach near about say 90,000/-. For Tax saving purpose If i ask my boss to split my salary with two cheque, one for me and another with my wife's name.

on first look as of me Its benefit for me. but will actually benefits me according to you?

I know if i change the job then it will difficult to convince for the same. but apart from there any legal inquiry can come? This am asking because last 2-3 years am paying more tax and suddenly it will reduce tax due to split salary, will it problem for me? What you suggest me should i split the salary or not? if Yes what portion should i maintain (50% will create any problems?)?

Thanks & Regards, Snehal

See, ethically and legally it won't be right.

Your employer would have to take your wife on their payrolls and then only they would be able to pay her.

If they agree, definitely you can save tax if your wife is currently not earning. She would get 2 lakh exemption extra plus other deductions like 80C too.
