Income Tax Slab / Rates for FY 2016-17 AY 2017-18

Share
The Union Finance Minister Shri Arun
Jaitley in his Budget Speech ON 29/02/2016 in Lok Sabha proposed
no change in the rate of personal Income-tax.
 He
announced the tax proposals with no change in the rate of tax for companies in
respect of the income earned in the financial year 2016-17 assessable in the
assessment year 2017-18.
However rebate under section 87A has been increased to 5000 from 2000/-
earlier. But 87A relief is available only to persons having taxable income up
to 500000/- (income after all deductions). So if your Taxable income is more
than 5 lakh then no benefit is available to you. Further if your income is more
than one crore then surcharge has been increased to 12 to 15%.
