Income Tax Slabs rates for AY 2024–25 (FY 2023–24)

Income tax slabs

The Indian taxation system follows a progressive approach where the tax payable increases as income rises, with Income Tax slabs introduced to facilitate this approach. The applicability of these slabs depends on factors like the taxpayer’s residential status, income level, category, and age. Income Tax Rates in India are reviewed annually after the budget announcement, and this year the Finance Ministry has introduced significant changes. This article can provide information on Income Tax slabs and rates applicable for FY 2023-24 or AY 2024-25, including details on the old and new tax regime.

Income Tax Slab Rates in India

The Indian Income Tax System follows a structured approach to levy taxes on the income of individuals and non-individuals through various Income Tax Slabs. These slabs are categorized based on the income level and are subject to different tax rates.

The tax applies to the range of income, which varies based on the applicable slab rate that keeps on changing every year. The slab rates of Income Tax are announced in the Union Budget every year by the Finance Minister.

The Income Tax Slab Rate bifurcation is based on several factors such as gender, age, and type of entity. The rates vary as follows:

  • By Gender: The tax rates for male and female taxpayers are the same.
  • By Age: The rates differ for resident and non-resident individuals in India.
  • For Hindu Undivided Family (HUF)/ Association Of Person (AOP)/ Body Of Individual (BOI)/ Artificial Judicial Person (AJP): These non-individual entities are subject to different slab rates based on their income levels.
  • On Non-individuals: The tax rates differ for partnership firms or LLPs, domestic companies, foreign companies, co-operative societies, and local authorities.

Here is a table detailing the Old Tax Regime for FY 2022-23 and FY 2023-24 Before Budget 2023 (until 31st March 2023) and the New Tax Regime After Budget 2023 (From 1st April 2023) in India:

Income Range Rate of Tax – Old Regime Rate of Tax – New Regime (Without exemptions and deductions) Rate of Tax – New Regime (With exemptions and deductions)

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
