Taxes made easy’, was always an ever promoted agenda of the Indian government. With the announcement of the Budget 2019-2020, the government briefed for tax goals of the economy and the essential amendments required in the present direct tax laws. Several changes to the tax rules were proposed for the coming year 2019-2020. One such key amendment was made under Section 87A of the Income Tax Act.
As per the Income-tax Act, 1931 any individual being a resident of India, having a taxable income below the exemption limit is entitled to claim a rebate under Section 87A.
Section 87A – Basics
Section 87A in the Income-tax Act was proposed by the Finance Bill of 2013 to provide a basic tax rebate to the taxpayers having a low-income background. As per the existing provisions, any individual whose income lies below Rs 3,50,000 is eligible to claim a tax amount rebate under this section. The section states for the tax rebate available to an Individual taxpayer which can be 100% of the total tax amount calculated of his total income or Rs 2500 whichever is lower.
Budget 2019 Update: Adding numerous tax benefits for the taxpayer, the government further hiked the minimum tax rebate limit to Rs 12,500 from Rs 2500 under Section 87A.
Section 87A – Eligibility
To claim rebate under Section 87A one should:
– Be a resident individual taxpayer of India
– Hold total income after deducting eligible deductions under Section 80, below the total exemption limit.
Note: The rebate shall;
– be available on an amount of tax calculated before adding any Education or related cess.
– be available to only an Individual & not to any Firm/Company/HUF. Senior citizens above 60 years can also claim an exemption under this section.
Thus, as applicable from FY 2019-2020, an individual taxpayer having income below Rs 5,00,000 becomes eligible to claim tax rebate available under Section 87A.
