ITR for FY 2021-22: know where you will benefit in new and old tax slabs

New Delhi: There is no change in the General Budget 2021 regarding the income tax slab. In this case, two options of the previous income tax slab will remain applicable. However, in Budget 2021, senior citizens above 75 years have got some relief. The budget proposes that if senior citizens above 75 years of age have pension income and interest income as their sole source of income, they will not be required to file income tax returns. In the case of such senior citizens, banks will automatically deduct TDS.




Select a tax slab

In the Budget 2020, the Finance Ministry gave two income tax options for the salary class. These options are effective from FY 2020-21. With no change in the income tax slab in Budget 2021, these options will also be applicable in the new financial year. Taxpayers can choose either of these two options while filing their income tax return. One of these two options is the old / existing tax slab and the other option is the new tax slab, which was introduced in the budget 2020.

Apart from the rates in the new tax slabs brought in the previous budget, the major difference is that it has eliminated various exemptions, while the old / existing tax slabs are getting different tax rebates. Also, in all cases, 4 percent health and education cess is charged with income tax liability. Let us know in detail about both these tax slabs.
