Pay less income tax in future.

It is that time of the year again.

Not a bad thing, really.

However, if it is possible for us to pay less income tax, why not?

I am talking about doing it legally, of course.

As I don't have any significant earned income anymore, I don't pay any income tax.

When was the last time I paid income tax?

Investing for income has helped me to increase my income but not my income tax and you can do it too by creating dividend machines: HERE.

Dear AK, if you dont have income, but contribute to your CPF voluntarily, then will you get "flag" by IRAS in that sense no income declared but got $$$ to top-up CPF?? Where do you get the money from??
