The New Tax Regime has lower tax rates than the Old regime.
The lowest tax slab in the new regime is Rs 0-3 lakh; in the old regime, it is Rs 0-2.5 lakh.
The new regime has 6 tax slabs, with the last slab for income above Rs 15 Lakh; the old has 4 slabs, with the last slab above Rs 10 lakh.
Unlike the old system, the new regime excludes exemptions and deductions, such as TA, HRA, standard deduction, home loan interest, etc.
Calculate the tax liability under old and new regimes to select the best option.
Belated return filing is similar to ITR filing. You must pay a penalty of Rs 1,000 if the annual income is less than Rs 5 lakh and Rs 5,000 if it is more under Section 234F.
Individuals must choose Form 10-IE to file ITR under ‘Profits and Gains of Business and Profession’ income and report separately under head salary and PGBP.
Taxpayers can switch between old and new regimes during ITR filing.
