What is Income Tax?

An Income Tax is a tax that is levied on the income earned by working individuals. Most governments impose taxes on financial income generated by all entities within their jurisdiction. This is the primary source of funds for the government to finance all its activities. All businesses and individuals must file an income tax return every year to determine whether they owe any taxes or are eligible for a tax refund.

This income tax that you need to pay depends on a number of parameters that include the type of income, the amount of income, your age, the investments that are considered under tax deduction. Your income tax is usually deducted by your employer. By declaring your taxes in advance, you don’t need to apply for the tax refunds later.

How to calculate your Income Tax on your salary?
You can easily compute the Income Tax that you need to pay on your salary by using the Income Tax calculator.
Here’s how Income Tax calculated in India:
Your gross salary includes your basic salary, HRA, Special Allowance, Transport Allowance, and other allowances. Out of this, you can claim for a tax deduction for certain components such as medical reimbursements, telephone bill reimbursement, HRA - if you live in a rented house. For Transport Allowance, the exemption limit is about Rs.1,600 per month or Rs.19,200 per year. This means that you can claim a tax deduction of up to Rs.19,200 for the year.

Let’s understand how exactly your income tax is calculated:
Say you earn a basic salary of Rs.40,000 per month, your HRA is Rs.20,000, and you get a conveyance allowance of Rs.4,000. Your special allowance is about Rs.2,000 and you get an Leave and Travel Allowance of Rs.10,000 per year.
So, your annual basic salary is Rs.40,000 x 12 = Rs.4,80,000
Your HRA per year is Rs.20,000 x 12 = Rs.2,40,000
Your annual Transport Allowance is Rs.4,000 x 12 = Rs.48,000
This allowance is capped at Rs.19,200
Your annual Special Allowance is Rs.2,000 x 12 = Rs.24,000
Gross salary = Basic salary + HRA + Transport Allowance + Special Allowance + Leave and Travel Allowance
Gross salary = Rs.4,80,000 + Rs.2,40,000 + Rs.48,000 + Rs.24,000 + Rs.10,000
Gross salary = 8,02,000
Taxable income here will be
Basic = Rs.4,80,000
HRA = Rs.2,40,000 - Rs.2,40,000 = 0
Transport Allowance = Rs.48,000 – Rs.19,200 = Rs.28,800
If you have travelled with your immediate in that year, you can claim the fare of economy class air ticket, first-class ticket, or the ticket of a recognised public transport.
Let’s assume you spent Rs.7,000 for 2 first-class train tickets for you and your spouse, you can claim this amount under LTA.
So, your taxable LTA = Rs.10,000 – Rs.7,000 = Rs.3,000
So, your taxable salary = Rs.4,80,000 + Rs.0 + Rs.28,800 + Rs.24,000 + Rs.7,000 = Rs.5,39,800

The Income Tax is calculated on the total income you earn from various sources such as your salary, home rental income, income from sale purchase of shares and property, income from business, interest on fixed deposits, and bonds, etc.
You may have income from other investments such as an interest of Rs.10,000 on a fixed deposit.
Your total income = Rs.5,39,800 + Rs.10,000 = Rs.5,49,800

Your other tax-saving investments may include:
Public Provident Fund = Rs.50,000
LIC premium = Rs.8,000
Medical insurance premium = Rs.12,000
You also have an EPF of Rs.50,000 per month
So, your annual EPF = Rs.50,000 x 12% x 12 = Rs.72,000
Total tax-saving investments include = Rs.50,000 + Rs.8,000 + Rs.12,000 + Rs.72,000 = Rs.1,42,000
So, your total taxable income = Rs.5,49,800 - Rs.1,42,000 = Rs.4,07,800
The income tax you need to pay is as follows:
Since you fall in the Rs.2,50,001 to Rs.5,00,000 tax bracket, your total taxable amount is
= Rs.4,07,800 – Rs.2,50,000 = Rs.1,57,800
Income tax you pay = 20% x Rs.1,57,800 + 3% x Rs.1,57,800 = Rs.36,
