Who Should File Income Tax Returns?
If an individual’s income is less than the minimum deduction cap, he or she does not require submitting income tax returns. If the salary is less than Rs 2.5L and the income-tax refund is claimable, the rebate can only proceed by filing an ITR. In any other case, the filing of income tax returns is compulsory.
Factors such as your marital status and that you have dependents decide your filing rights. The IRS has 5 of them with various qualification requirements, standard deductions, income tax rates, and eligibility for credit and deduction.
How do I calculate taxable income?
This is how your taxable income can be calculated:
For the fiscal year 2020-21, the taxpayer has a choice between the new taxation scheme and the old one. To know the tax system that is beneficial to a person, it is important to know the extent of tax liability in both regimes.
On 1 April 2020, the current income tax law came into effect. The option of continuing with the current tax regime (by tax exemptions and deductions) and of opting for a new tax regime without 70 exemptions and deductions is thus given to an individual taxpayer. Also, every financial year, employing individuals with no business income have to pick, according to their choice, from current and new tax schemes.
On the other hand, those with business revenues should carefully assess if they want to continue or opt for the new tax system. Once you decide on the new tax regime, you can only switch back to the current tax regime once a lifetime.
It is necessary to know how much tax responsibility you have under all jurisdictions to pick between the two tax systems.
