Tax being one of the most technical subject in CA/CMA. The biggest fear of the students is how to attempt tax paper.

I KNOW ALL THE PROVISIONS,

I KNOW ALL THE CONCEPTS,

BUT I FAIL TO SCORE ATLEAST 40 marks EVEN I PASS THE SUBJECT I’M NOT ABLE TO SCORE EXEMPTION..

-A CA/CMA STUDENT.

To pass the subject like TAX you need a proper presentation too which will take you to pass the subject and score an exemption. I’m going to share some of the points which you have to keep in mind while solving TAX paper whether you are in INTER or FINAL:

For all the Case Based Questions

Step 1: Explain relevant provision with section number.

(NOTE: Give reference of section number if you are 100% sure about the section number or else don’t give it otherwise examiner may wrong the whole question)

Step 2: Explain the facts and issues of the case in short.

Step 3: Give conclusions with reasons.

(Note: Conclusions without reasons will lead you to score less marks.)


In other words, Divide your answer into 3-4 paragraphs that are:

PROVISION & SECTION,

FACTS & ISSUES OF THE CASE,

CONCLUSION with REASONS.


For all the Numerical Based Questions

FOR ALL TRANSACTIONS in the question Give EXPLANATIONS (MANDATORY) WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS (If remember).

Explanations are to be given at the end of the numerical part (after determining the final answer) and where working notes are required PREPARE WORKING NOTE right there.

FOR EXAMPLE: While computing GAV(in case of HOUSE PROPERTY) you need not explain any provision but you need a working note which can be prepared at there in order to save time and secure marks. Don’t make such type of working notes at last it will only lead to confusion.

How to overcome the fear of Taxation?

Do a writing practice of all the sections and provisions by giving tests which will 100% help you to improve your presentations and boost up your confidence and you’ll score well.

So this was all about how to attempt Taxation exam. Hope it will help you in preparing for your exam accordingly.
