First, take a look at some facts.
Tax rates prescribed for AY 2018-19: For Individuals/Hindu Undivided Family (HUF)/Association of Persons(AOP)/Body of individuals(BOI) the rates are:
Apart from the Income Tax, individuals also have to pay 4% towards ‘Health and Education Cess’.
Rebate U/s 87A is available for a resident individual if her/his total income does not exceed Rs 3,50,000. The amount of rebate is 100% of income-tax or Rs. 2500, whichever is less. This rebate is applied to the total tax before the 4% Education Cess is added. It is available to all individuals but not super senior citizens as they are fully exempted up to Rs 5 lakh.
Now, consider Mr X, aged 45, earned a total income of Rs 12,00,000 in FY 2018-19. If the tax slab mentioned above continues for the Assessment Year 2019-20 also, Mr X's tax liability will be calculated as:
|Payable Tax Calculation||Value in Rupees|
|Up to Rs.2,50,000||Nil|
|From Rs.2,50,001 to Rs.5,00,000 @ 5%||12,500|
|From Rs.5,00,001 to Rs.10,00,000 @ 20%||1,00,000|
|On balance Rs.2,00,000 @ 30%||60,000|
|Adding education cess @ 4%||5300|
|Total tax payable by Mr X||1,77,800|
In order to decrease the high tax liability of Rs 177,800, Mr X can do tax planning and use several government schemes like PPF, 5-year tax saving deposits, ELSS, National Saving Certificates etc. to save income tax.
