How to File Income Tax Return Online and Offline?

|

Individuals who received more than a certain amount in the previous year are subject to Income Tax in India. The amount of tax you pay is determined by your income class. The income slabs substantially altered under the new taxation scheme. Individuals, Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), Bodies of Individuals (BOIs), Associations of Persons (AOPs), businesses, and companies are all required to pay Income Tax in India if they earn taxable income. Income tax deductions are reductions in your tax obligation from your total taxable income that tend to lower your net taxable income and thereby decrease your tax liability. Taxpayers can deduct defined assets and expenses under a variety of parts of the Income Tax Act of 1961.

 

In addition to lower tax rates, the new tax regime would exclude 70 of the nearly 100 deductions and exemptions that are currently applicable. Individual taxpayers will be unable to claim many of the current deductions under the different provisions of the Income Tax Act to minimize their taxable income under this framework.
