Income Tax Rule Change: 10 rules related to income tax changing from April 1, know what benefits you will get

Income Tax Rule Change: From the new financial year 2023-24, there is going to be a big change in many rules related to income tax. From new tax slabs to increased tax limit and no LTCG tax benefits on debt mutual funds, many major changes are taking place from April 1. 

The new income tax regime will be the default regime 

From April 1, the new tax system will work like a default tax regime. However, taxpayers will be able to choose the old system for paying tax. 

Tax limit raised to 7 lakhs

Under the new tax system, the government can get tax exemption on income up to Rs 7 lakh in the budget 2023. If you choose the option of paying tax through the old system, then this exemption will not be available. This rule will be applicable from April 1. 

Standard deduction 

There is no change in the standard deduction. Under the old tax regime, a standard deduction of Rs 50,000 has been kept. However, for pensioners with an income of Rs 15.5 lakh, the standard deduction will be Rs 52,500. 

Change in Income Tax Slab 

Under the new tax regime, the tax slab is zero on 0 to 3 lakh, 5 percent on 3 to 6 lakh, 10 percent on 6 to 9 lakh, 15 percent on 9 to 12 lakh and 30 percent on above 15 lakh.&nbsp ;

LTA limit is also increasing. Leave encashment for non-government employees was Rs 3 lakh since 2002, which has been increased to Rs 25 lakh. 

Tax on Debt Mutual Funds 

LTCG tax benefits will not be given on debt mutual funds from April 1. That is, from April 1, investment in debt mutual funds will come under short term capital gain tax. 

Market Linked Debentures 

From April 1, investment in market linked debentures will be a short term capital asset. This will end grandfathering of earlier investments and will have a negative impact on the mutual fund industry. 

Life Insurance Policy 

Income from Jeevan Bima premium in excess of Rs 5 lakh annual premium will come under tax from the new financial year i.e. April 1, 2023. 

Benefits to Senior Citizens 

Investment limit under Senior Citizen Saving Scheme has been increased from Rs 15 lakh to Rs 30 lakh, which will be applicable from April 1.
