There are two things in the world from which a person can’t escape; Death and taxes. So, it’s better to be prepared for the same. Here is how you can calculate your taxes on income earned during the year.
Income-tax is levied on the total income of a taxpayer. Hence, it is important first to compute the total income. Under Income-tax Act, there are 5 heads of income, inter-alia, Salary, Income from House Property, Business or Profession, Capital Gain, and Income from Other Sources. The aggregate of income (after set-off of losses) from these 5 heads is called ‘Gross Total Income (GTI)’ out of which various deductions are allowed to a taxpayer on account of investments and savings made by him.
The resultant income is called ‘Total Income’, which shall be the basis for the calculation of tax liability. Total income is bifurcated into 2 parts – Normal Income and Special Income. The normal income of a taxpayer is charged to tax as per applicable tax rates (i.e., slab rates in case of an individual), whereas, special income is charged to tax at special rates.
