Budget 2023: All you need to know about new tax slabs
Budget 2023: A number of modifications to the income tax slabs under the new tax system were unveiled by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. An individual will not be subject to tax under the new tax system on income up to Rs 7 lakh if all rebates are taken into account.
Under the new system, a person making Rs 9 lakh a year will only have to pay tax on Rs 45,000. In the current system, this represents just 5% of a taxpayer's income. The new tax system has a standard deduction of Rs 52,500. The new tax system would be the default system, the FM added.
Revised tax slabs under new tax regime:
The finance minister declared that the new income tax system would be the standard tax system, however, individuals would still have the choice to pay taxes under the previous system.
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit responded to this year's budget by saying, "It is sad that all administrations consistently disregard our entertainment business. Whether it be the textile, soap, or health industries, we have not discussed them in the same manner that other businesses are discussed in budgets."
He further stated, "No one considers our entertainment industry, no one considers how to save the business, no one considers how to expand it, in the same manner that other industries are identified, studied, debated, and advantages are considered for that industry. I hope that our industry will gain in some way from this budget, since we are pleased with it."
Budget 2023 is significant
India will prioritise strengthening its economy, creating jobs, and reducing its fiscal deficit, according to the finance minister. Before the Lok Sabha elections in 2024, it was the government's final complete budget presented to Parliament.
