Tax slab

Tax slab is the limit for taxable income. This limit is set by income tax departments on annual basis. Tax slab depends upon government policies. Yearly tax invoice is becomes  ready keeping in view the tax slab for the year.

Given Tax slab ;

Annual income range            Rate of tax
Rs 400001 – Rs 750000 5% of the amount exceeding Rs 400000


We are given;

Annual Income of the person = Rs 57800

So taxable income i-e amount that exceeds 400000 is  as under;

Taxable Income= 578000-400000= Rs 178000

Tax on this difference will be applicable at rate of 5% ( as per  slab)


\[ Tax = \frac{5}{100}\times 178000 = Rs 8900 \]


So he will pay a tax of Rs 8900 on his annual income !

Whole annual income becomes tax able if it crosses the slab limit. It is perception that only the amount exceeding the slab is taxable which is wrong.
