Expected Income Tax Rates and Slabs in Budget 2023

Several tax experts and industry bodies have urged the Government to revise Income Tax Rate in certain slabs in order to provide relief to taxpayers.

“The tax rate for individuals has not been changed since FY2017-18 (new tax regime bought in FY2020-21). Hence, to give more purchasing power to individuals and some relief to the employed taxpayers, the highest tax rate of 30 per cent should be reduced to 25 per cent and the threshold limit for the highest tax rate be increased from INR 10 lakh to INR 20 lakh. Therefore, the proposed highest slab rate (including surcharge and cess) can be reduced to 35.62 per cent,”
