The income will not be subjected to further taxation. Interest from Post office Savings bank is tax exempt. Interest from HFCK has a withholding tax of 15% which is final. It is taxed at the source. The first sh.180,000 of income recieved from a pension scheme is exempted from taxation. Any excess amount recieved is therefore taxed. Employers contribution to a registered fund is a non-taxable benefit and is therefore not included in the above computation. Insurance relief is 15% of the premiums paid and it reduces tax liability of an individual. Incomes recieved from other sources besides employment are added up after computation of taxable income, they come at the end of the computation to give us total taxable income.
