Old & New Tax Slabs

Below are the Old and New Tax Slab Rates for all Age groups:

Income Tax Slab Rates for FY 2021-22
Income Tax Slab Rates for FY 2021-22, FY 2022-23

The New Tax Slab Rates are same for all age groups.

For Age between 60 – 80 years, 5% slab is for income between Rs. 3,00,000 to Rs. 5,00,000 under Old Slab Rates.

For Age above 80 years, 5% slab rate is not applicable in Old Slab Rate. So people in this age group can belong to only 20% or 30% Slab Rate.

How to Calculate Income Tax Examples

Let’s take example of income = Rs. 8 Lacs in FY (April 2022-March 2023)

Tax Calculation with Old Tax Regime

Since income = Rs. 8 Lacs, based on old slab rates – you pay 0% tax on income between Rs. 0 to Rs. 2.5 Lacs, 5% tax on income between Rs. 2.5 Lacs to Rs. 5 Lacs and 20% tax on income between Rs. 5 Lacs to Rs. 8 Lacs. So below is the calculation:

0% Tax (Rs. 0 – Rs. 2.5 Lacs) = Rs. 0
5% Tax (Rs. 2.5 Lacs to Rs. 5 Lacs) = Rs. 12,500 (on Rs. 2.5 Lacs difference)
20% Tax (Rs. 5 Lacs to Rs. 8 Lacs) = Rs. 60,000 (on Rs. 3 Lacs difference)

This makes your intermediate tax as Rs. 72,500. Now an additional 4% cess is applicable on this amount which is Rs. 2,900, which makes your total income tax based on Old Tax Regime = Rs. 75,400

Income Tax Calculation using Old Tax Regime

Let us now see income tax calculation using New Tax Regime

Tax Calculation with New Tax Regime

With same example of income = Rs. 8 Lacs, based on new slab rates – you pay 0% tax on income between Rs. 0 to Rs. 2.5 Lacs, 5% tax on income between Rs. 2.5 Lacs to Rs. 5 Lacs, 10% tax on income between Rs. 5 Lacs to Rs. 7.5 Lacs and 15% tax on income between Rs. 7.5 Lacs to Rs. 8 Lacs. So below is the calculation:

0% Tax (Rs. 0 – Rs. 2.5 Lacs) = Rs. 0
5% Tax (Rs. 2.5 Lacs to Rs. 5 Lacs) = Rs. 12,500 (on Rs. 2.5 Lacs difference)
10% Tax (Rs. 5 Lacs to Rs. 7.5 Lacs) = Rs. 25,000 (on Rs. 3 Lacs difference)
15% Tax (Rs. 7.5 Lacs to Rs. 8 Lacs) = Rs. 7,500 (on Rs. 3 Lacs difference)

This makes your intermediate tax as Rs. 45,000. Now an additional 4% cess is applicable on this amount which is Rs. 1,800, which makes your total income tax based on New Tax Regime = Rs. 46,800.

Which Tax Regime is Better for You

To answer this question, it depends on person to person. Every individual is having different incomes in a Financial Year.

As we saw in above Income Tax slab rates, if your income is in the range of Rs. 5 Lacs to Rs. 12 Lacs, you can opt for Old Income Tax Slab rate, make some Tax saving investments and Save Income Tax.

But if your income is above Rs. 12 Lacs, there is not much option to save maximum income tax. Even after making investments with maximum limits in different sections, you’ll still be paying more taxes with old tax regime compared to new tax regime.

Below is the graph showing the comparison of income vs income tax:

Old vs New Tax Regime Income Tax Comparison

As seen above, green line depicts income tax with new tax regime, which is low when your income moves greater than 12 Lacs. Blue line (old regime with investments) is still above green line which shows that even after investments you’ll more more income tax with old slab rates compared to new slab rates.

So you should make your investments according to your total income and based on the calculations of income tax in both regimes. Choose the one that helps you pay less income tax.

Can I save Income Tax using New Income Tax Slab Rates?

Ans. In case your Net Taxable Income is up to Rs. 5 Lacs, you get Tax Rebate of maximum Rs. 12,500 under Section 87a which cancels your income tax of Rs. 12,500 on income of Rs. 5 Lacs, thus making your Total Income Tax = Rs. 0. This Tax Rebate u/s 87a is applicable to both Old and New Slab Rates.

Is Tax Rebate u/s 87a applicable to both old and new slab rates?

Ans. Yes.

What is the standard deduction amount for FY 2022-23?

Ans. Standard Deduction applicable for FY 2022-23 is Rs. 50,000. But this is applicable only when you choose Old Income Tax Slab Rates to calculate your Income Tax. Not on New Income Tax Slab Rates.

Is interest earned in Savings Account Taxable?

Ans. Yes. But you can claim maximum of Rs. 10,000 in FY 2022-23 under Section 80TTA for interest earned in your savings account using old tax slab rates (Rs. 50,000 for senior citizens under Section 80TTB).
