A Complete Guide to Income Tax Slabs in India

What Is the Income Tax Slab?

In India, the Income Tax applies to individuals using a slab system, with different tax rates assigned to different income groups. This means that as a person’s income rises, so do the tax rates. This sort of taxation allows for a more equitable and progressive tax structure in the country. The income tax slabs are updated on a regular basis, usually during the fiscal year. The type of taxpayer will affect the slab rates. Let’s take a look at all of the slab rates for FY 2022-23 (AY 2023-24) and FY 2023-24 (AY 2024-25).

Individuals (under 60 years old) pay no tax on income up to 2.5 lakh and pay a maximum tax rate of 30% on income exceeding 10 lakh in the fiscal year 2021-2022. Senior citizens and extremely senior citizens have distinct slabs. It’s critical to stay up to date on the current tax rules because these slabs might vary from year to year.
