  1. The Interim Budget 2019, announced by Union Minister for Finance, Corporate Affairs, Railways & Coal, Shri Piyush Goyal, laid out several tax sops for individuals. The schemes have been designed to benefit the middle class. The budget provides for Tax benefits
    of Rs.18,500 crore to an estimated 3 crore middle-class taxpayers comprising self-employed, small business, small traders, salary earners, pensioners, and senior citizens. Nil Income Tax for individuals with a taxable income of up to Rs 5 lakh. The finance minister proposed that individuals earning a taxable income of up to Rs 5 lakh will not have to pay tax. Thus, a person with an income of Rs 6.50 lakh, who claims full benefit under Section 80C of Rs 1.50 lakh, will not have to pay tax on his income.

  2. Hi Amit
    Thanks for sharing the excel tool, but one clarification is in 80 C home loan repayment principal amount it is mentioned as 50 % of actual amount. Please confirm on this.

    1. I am sorry this was written by mistake. 100% of home loan principal (up to Rs 1.5 lakh) is eligible for tax exemption u/s 80C.

    1. It depends on net taxable salary. If you make tax saving investments there may not be any TDS deducted.

  3. Standard Deduction Words “fifty thousand” shall be subs. for “forty thousand” by the Finance Act, 2019 (w.e.f. 1-4-2020).

  4. Hello Amit,

    Thanks a lot for sharing the excel utility on computing income tax liability across many assessment year. I noticed a gap in the utility which i want to bring to your notice.

    The surcharge calculation @10% for >50L and @15% for >1Cr is not proper. This surcharge is on net taxable income and not gross income. Also if the surcharge tax @10% or 15% is more than the increase in taxable income from the applicable base, the individual will get a marginal relief of the difference amount between the excess tax payable on higher income. Request you to please update the logic in the excel and share, thanks

    Regards
    Ashish
