Save Tax through your Spouse
Starting the tax planning with your wife is a good idea not because it saves you tax but woman always loves gifts. You can gift any amount to your wife with no restrictions as wife comes under the definition relative but the taxman is not foolish. The income earned from the amount given as gift to your wife will be clubbed with your income under section 64 and thus does not give you any tax benefit.
So how can you save tax? Simply invest in the tax-free instruments u/s 80C in your wife’s name such as Public Provident Fund (PPF) and Equity Linked Savings Scheme (ELSS).

Save Tax through Parents
Apart from the health insurance policy, parents can also help you to save some extra bucks from your tax liability.
The best way is to pay them the rent and claim HRA but you should be living with them and your parents shall be the owner of the house. Your parents should also need to file an ITR showing the rental income. It would be ice on the cake if your parents co-owned the house, you can split the rental amount and both of them can separately show the rental income.
The other way is to lend some portion of your money to your parent as well as your parents-in-laws which they could invest and the return would be taxable in their hands. So at one end they are giving interest to you and on the other end they are earning interest. This allows you to lighten your tax burden.
