Difference Between 80EE and 80EEA

First-time homebuyers can deduct certain expenses from their net taxable income under Sections 80EE and 80EEA of the Income Tax Act. Anyone purchasing a new home can deduct expenses from their net taxable income, thanks to the Income Tax Act sections 80EE and 80EEA.

The range of deductions available under sections 80EE and 80EEA is between ₹50,000 and ₹1,50,000, and only the interest portion of the monthly payment for a home loan is eligible for this deduction. However, it is essential to remember that, depending on when your home loan was approved, you can only deduct expenses under one of Sections 80EE or 80EEA. 

Section 80EE

On the interest portion of a residential property loan obtained from any financial institution, Section 80EE permits income tax benefits.

According to this section, you may deduct up to ₹50,000 each fiscal year. You can still use this deduction until the loan is completely repaid.

Any first-time home buyer in India is eligible for an additional tax deduction of up to ₹1.5 lakhs under Section 80EEA of the Income Tax Act.
