What is Income Tax Calculator

An Income-tax calculator is an online tool that helps to evaluate taxes based on a person’s income once the Union Budget for the year is announced. Individuals falling under the taxable income bracket are liable to pay a specific portion of their net annual income as tax. Income tax can be paid either as tax deducted at source while disbursement of monthly salary, or through the income tax returns portal managed by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT). The provision for online payment of taxes is to ensure individuals pay their stipulated dues on any earnings generated from other sources.

The IT calculator given on this page is aligned with the updates announced in the Union Budget for FY 2023-24 and AY 2024-25.

How to Understand Income Tax Slabs?

The Indian Income-tax works on the basis of a slab system and the tax is levied accordingly on individual taxpayers. Slab implies the different tax rates charged for different income ranges. In other words, the more your income, the more tax you have to pay. These slabs of income tax are revised every year during the budget announcement. Again, These slab rates are segregated for different categories of taxpayers. As per the Income-tax of India, there are  three categories of “individual “taxpayers such as:

  • Individuals below 60 years of age, including residents and non-residents
  • Resident Senior citizens – 60 to 80 years of age
  • Resident Super senior citizens – more than 80 years of age

How to Calculate the Total Income Tax Liability?

How is income tax calculated is often a commonly asked question. Individuals can determine the total tax expenses through an online income tax calculator. Such tools take into account the following pointers to reflect the actual tax liability of a resident or non-resident Indian at the end of a financial year –

  1. Annual income from salary/profits.
  2. Income from other sources such as investments, rental income, etc.
  3. Tax exemptions applicable, if any.
  4. House rent and transport allowance.

Entering accurate data regarding the above-mentioned pointers will demonstrate the total tax liability of individuals. Minus the taxes already paid through TDS, the remaining can be deposited directly online through the official portal Challan 280. If, in any event, the taxes paid exceed the total liability, the difference is reimbursed by the government within 30 days of filing for the same.

Taxpayers who file their return after the due date will have to pay interest under 234A and penalty under section 234F. Hence, remembering the due date of filing income tax returns is indispensable. However, keep in mind that the due date varies according to the category of taxpayers. For instance, if you are a salaried individual, usually you must file your income tax returns by the 31st of July of the assessment year.

Exemptions on Total Income Tax

Here's how to calculate income tax based on exemptions-

  • Section 87A – Income below Rs. 5 lakh is eligible for a tax rebate of up to Rs. 12,500.
  • Section 80CCD (1B) – Tax exemption of up to Rs. 2 lakh for money deposited in the national pension system.
