Know about the income tax slabs FY 2022-23 | FY 2021-22

There is no change in income tax slabs for the Financial Year 2022-23; Assessment year 2023-2034.

Income Tax is charged on the persons as per the income(s) earned by them during the relevant financial year. The rate of tax payment is decided by the Government. Further, this amount is divided into various income tax slabs/rates. These rates are, however, amended by Government from time to time. 

Choice between the new & old income tax slabs

The choice between the new and old tax regimes’ income tax slabs can be done by an assessee, at any time before the filing of the Income Tax Return. Further, even if a salaried employee has made a declaration to his employee that he will opt for New Tax Regime during the relevant year, then also he can switch to the old tax regime.

New Tax Regime & Income Tax Slabs

Through Budget, 2020, Finance Minister Ms Nirmala Sitharaman announced a new tax regime at lower income tax slab rates. This New Tax Regime can be opted only by the Individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs). Therefore, the firms, companies, Association of Persons, etc cannot opt for New Tax Regime. 

Further, if the individuals/HUFs opt for this scheme, then they will have to forego the majority of the deductions and exemptions available under the old tax regime.

In addition to this, the new tax regime does not differentiate individuals based on age group. In other words, the income tax slab rate is the same for all individuals falling under the relevant income tax slab. 

The individuals, however, have to choose either of the following:
– To pay income tax at lower rates as per the new tax regime and forgo the majority of the deductions and exemptions, or
– To continue to pay taxes at a higher rate under the old tax regime and avail of the deductions and exemptions.
