What income tax changes should I know about?

Every year, the income tax slabs and laws undergo changes in keeping with the country’s changing economic status. While the Budget 2019 announcement did not introduce any changes in the income tax slabs and rates, there have been alterations in a few other factors that can determine your income tax payments,such as:

  • During previous financial years, the Secondary and Higher Education Cess was levied at 3%. Budget 2018 combined it with the Education cess and termed it the Heath and Education cess, and it currently stands at 4%. It is applicable on all net taxable income.
  • Individuals with an income of upto ₹5 lakhs  will be eligible to avail a full tax rebate. This means that if your taxable income in the financial year 2019-2020 comes falls under ₹5 lakhs, you will have to pay no income tax.
  • Interim budget 2019 increased the standard deduction limit for salaried taxpayers from ₹40,000 to ₹ 50,000.
  • The Interim Budget 2019 also raised the TDS threshold on rental income from ₹1.8 lakhs to ₹2.4 lakhs.
