Understanding Your Taxable Income

Taxable income includes all the money you make that the government can tax. 

This means not just the money you earn from jobs (like your salary), but also what you make from owning a house or apartment that you rent out (house property), money you gain from selling things for more than you bought them (capital gains), and cash from other sources.

Understanding with an Example

Let's suppose Mr. Kumar, earning ₹60,000 monthly, uses an income tax calculator to assess his FY 2023-24 tax liability. By inputting his income and deductions, he determines his tax obligations, ensuring financial planning and tax compliance.


- Annual Salary: ₹7,20,000 (₹60,000 x 12)

- Standard Deduction: ₹50,000

- Other Deductions: ₹1,50,000

- Total Taxable Income: ₹7,20,000 - ₹50,000 - ₹1,50,000 = ₹5,20,000

On calculating income tax using the income tax calculator, Mr. Kumar can determine a payable amount.

₹2,50,001 - ₹5,00,000: 5%




Mr. Kumar reviews the calculated tax liability to optimize his tax-saving investments and financial planning, ensuring compliance and efficient management of his finances.

Components of Taxable Income

  • Income from House Property: This is the rental income one earns from owned property. 

  • Income from Business or Profession: Any profit or gain coming from business is taxable here.

  • Capital Gains: If one sells a capital asset, this is termed as capital gain. 

  • Income from Other Sources: This includes income from interest on savings accounts, fixed deposits, dividends, winnings from lotteries, gifts received, etc.

  • Income from Investments: Includes interest on bonds, dividends from shares, rental income from real estate, etc.

  • Foreign Income: Income earned by Indian residents from sources outside India may also be taxable in India, subject to certain conditions and exemptions.

Old vs. New Tax Regime

Both regimes come with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Here are the differences between the two:

Old Tax Regime:

  • Under the old regime, taxpayers can claim various deductions and exemptions allowed under the Income Tax Act. These deductions include but are not limited to:

    • Standard deduction on salary income.

    • Deductions under Section 80C (Investments in Provident Fund, ELSS, PPF, etc.).

    • Deductions under Section 80D (Medical insurance premium).

    • Deductions under Section 24 (Interest on home loan).

    • Deductions under Section 80TTA (Interest on savings account).

  • Tax slabs under the old regime remain higher, with more tax rates for higher income brackets.

New Tax Regime:

  • The new tax regime offers lower tax rates but fewer deductions and exemptions.

  • Taxpayers cannot claim most deductions and exemptions available under the old regime.

  • The new regime offers a flat tax rate structure with no deductions allowed, except for certain specified exemptions.

Key Differences:

  • The old tax regime offers more deductions and exemptions, which can significantly reduce the taxable income, resulting in lower tax liability.

  • The new tax regime offers lower tax rates but limits deductions and exemptions, which may be beneficial for taxpayers who don't have many deductions or prefer simplicity.
