Union Budget, 2018: Tax Rates for the AY 2019-20

 

The Finance Minister, Mr. Arun Jaitley, presented the Union Budget for the year 2018. It is the last full budget presented by him before the general election to be held next year in 2019. In contrast to the expectations, the proposals in personal taxation are not lucrative. Nothing extraordinary has been proposed for individual taxpayers.

There is no change in the maximum exemption limit which is not chargeable to income-tax. Moreover, the rates of tax have been kept unchanged. The "Education Cess" and "Secondary and Higher Education Cess" is proposed to be replaced by a new cess named "Health and Education Cess" which will be chargeable at the rate of 4% of income-tax and surcharge.

The proposed tax rates for the next financial year 2018-19 are given in following tables.
