    I had opened PPF A/c for HUF some years back & invested every year for tax rebate purpose. Last year I was told that you cannot invest in PPF A/c for HUF. Is this true & if so what are the tax implications on withdrawal of the entire money invested in PPF A/c ?

    New PPF Accounts for HUF's are not being opened anymore.

    However, existing PPF Account will be allowed to continue and would be closed on expiry fo 15 years from date of opening

    PPF a/c for HUFs opened prior to 13th May 2005 are allowed to continue till its maturity without further extension. After 13.5.2005, PPF a/c for HUFs cannot be opened. If any a/c has been opened after 13.5.2005 by mistake and tax benefits have been availed of, such benefits will be reversed and taxed accordingly.

    Thanks for your reply. Since my HUF PPF A/c was opened prior to 13.05.05, it is valid. So can I claim tax rebate for investment made under PPF A/c for HUF? Also, would like to know if Karta of HUF can invest in the 5 Yr Tax Savings scheme in the Bank for tax rebate?

    1. Yes, you can claim deduction for the amount invested in the PPF Account
    2. The Karta can invest but in this case the deduction would be allowed to the Karta in his individual category but not to the HUF
