Tax Planning is the process of availing deduction under section 10 A of Income Tax Act. It is a legal process.
Tax Avoidance is the process of misinterpreting the provisions of Income Tax Act in order to reduce the amount to be payed as tax. It is illegal to involve in such cases as we being a citizen should pay the right amount of tax to our government.
Tax Evasion is what many people do. It is the method of understating one's income. A person getting Rs. 1 Lakh a year will show his income as only Rs. 50000 a year. This reduces his tax liability but is illegal to do so.
Tax Administration is yet another related topic which the author has not included here. It is the process of making suitable arrangements of Tax Deducted at Source (TDS).
