Arun Jaitley emboldened the individual tax payers in our country by carving the tax rate to 5% for citizens having taxable income within Rs. 2.5 lakhs to Rs. 5 Lakhs from an earlier scheme of onerous 10%. Concurrently, our Finance minister has inflated the surtax of 10% on the 30% tax amount for denizens having an income between Rs. 50 Lakhs to Rs. 1 Crore which was there before to counterbalance the government income from any loss.The new tax slabs which will be commencing from April, 1 2017 are as follows:

General Category (for person up to 60 years age) :

For General Category – Individuals with an age up to 60 years will taxable if income is more than Rs. 2.5 Lakhs. No tax will be foisted upon people having income in between Rs. 0 – Rs. 2.5 Lakhs. A tax of only 5 per cent will be applicable if income is between Rs. 2.5 – 5 Lakhs. Further, the income tax rebate of up to Rs. 5,000 which was earlier given for taxable income up to Rs. 5 Lakhs, has been reduced to Rs. 2,500 and it will be available for taxable income of up to Rs. 3.5 Lakhs. It means if an individual has a taxable income of Rs. 3 Lakhs, his net tax liability will be zero (tax @5% on Rs. 1 Lakhs is Rs. 2,500 minus rebate of Rs. 2,500).

For income between Rs. 5-10 Lakhs, a tax of 20 per cent will be applicable and for income above Rs. 10 Lakhs a tax rate of 30 per cent will be applicable. However, people having taxable income of more than Rs. 50 Lakhs but less than Rs. 1 Crore, a new surcharge of 10% will be imposed along with the a tax of 30 per cent. For example, if an individual has a taxable income of Rs. 55 Lakhs, his tax liability will now increase from Rs. 15.19 Lakhs earlier to Rs. 16.57 Lakhs now (income tax of Rs. 14.62 Lakhs plus surcharge of Rs. 1.46 Lakhs and education & higher education cess of Rs. 48,263). If taxable income is more than Rs. 1 Crore, then the surcharge will increase to 15 per cent of tax plus education and higher education cess of 3 per cent.
