Individuals / HUF

Individuals here include women assesses but does not include assesses who are above 60 years of age. Tax exemption limit is Rs. 2,00,000.

Income
Tax Rate
Where the total income does not exceed Rs. 2,00,000/-
NIL
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 2,00,000/- but does not exceed Rs. 5,00,000/-.
10% of amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 2,00,000/-
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000/- but does not exceed Rs. 10,00,000/-.
Rs. 30,000/- + 20% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000/-.
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-.
Rs. 130,000/- + 30% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-.

Illustration :

Mr. A has a total Income of Rs. 11,00,000. He is of 45 years of age. Computation of his Tax Liability is as follows:



Income
Tax
First Rs. 2,00,000
NIL
Rs. 2,00,000 to Rs. 5,00,000
Rs. 30,000 (10%)
Rs. 5,00,000 to Rs. 10,00,000
Rs. 1,00,000 (20%)
Above Rs. 10,00,000
Rs. 30,000 (30%)
Total
Rs. 1,60,000

The total Tax liability for Mr. A is Rs. 1,60,000. This computation can be done in another way which is a simple one.

As his income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000, it can be computed as follows :

Rs. 1,30,000 + 30% on balance (Rs. 1,00,000 in this case) which comes to Rs. 1,60,000.

Hope you understand how to compute Tax Liability. Let's move on to the next head under Individuals.

Individual resident above 60 years and below 80 years

The Income Tax Slab rate for Individual resident who is of the age of 60 years or more but below the age of 80 years at any time during the previous year. The Tax exemption limit under this head is Rs. 2,50,000.

Tax rate

10% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 2,50,000/-.
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000/- but does not exceed Rs. 10,00,000/-
Rs. 25,000/- + 20% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000/-.
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-
Rs. 125,000/- + 30% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-.

Illustration :

Let's take the same example above assuming that Mr.A is of 65 years of age. The Tax Liability will be :

Rs. 1,25,000 + 30% on Balance ( Rs. 1,00,000*30%) which will be Rs. 1,55,000.

Individual Residents above 80 years of age

20% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000/-.
Where the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-
Rs. 100,000/- + 30% of the amount by which the total income exceeds Rs. 10,00,000/-

Illustration :

Once again taking the same example assuming that Mr. A is of 85 years of age, the Tax Liability will be

Rs. 1,00,000 + 30% on Balance ( Rs. 1,00,000*30$) will be Rs. 1,30,000.

To make it clear, let's compare the results arrived on the above. By comparing one can get a clear understanding about the Tax Liability.

Basis
Basic Exemption Limit
Tax Liability
Individuals (Below 60 years of age)
Rs. 2,00,000
Rs. 1,90,000
Individuals above 60 years of age but below 80 years of age
Rs. 2,50,000
Rs. 1,55,000
Individuals above 80 years of age
Rs. 5,00,000
Rs. 1,30,000

You can see the difference above. And this difference is due to the exemption limit.
