Income Tax Impact Calculator – Budget 2010-11

The most important factor that a common man look forward to in any Union Budget is the Direct Tax benefit that the Finance Minister announces. In the Budget 2010-11, the Finance Minister, didn’t dissappoint the common salaried class in terms of Income Tax benefits.

He quoted Kautilya’s following words :

“Thus, a wise Collector General shall conduct the work of revenue collection…. in a manner that production and consumption should not be injuriously affected…. financial prosperity depends on public prosperity, abundance of harvest and prosperity of commerce among other things.”

Following the essence of these words Mr. Pranab Mukharjee announced  Direct Tax Proposals, such as :

Direct Tax Proposals of Union Budget 2010-11

  • Income tax return form, SARAL-II, to be made simple and user friendly for individual salaried taxpayers for the coming assessment year.
  • Allowed a deduction of an additional amount of Rs.20,000 for investment in long-term infrastructure bonds as notified by the Central Government.  This would be over and above the existing limit of Rs.1 lakh on tax savings.

  1. Hi Manish,
    Budget have good points as for as share market is concern, only the negative point is increase in MAT, which will be bad for smaller IT companies.
    In Personal Income Tax area, no change in minimum level of 160 is not good, finance minister should have increase it to some whwre 250 level.

  2. hi,
    Nice calculator… but cud u please clarify
    a. whether PF is accounted in the gross salary (because it is deducted later)?
    b. How to include Professional pursuit and sodexho components?

    • Hi Kiran!

      Thanks for your comment.

      a) Employers include their contribution to the Provident Fund in your Cost-to-company. However, your contribution to Provident Fund is deducted from the salary and is deposited in your PF account. The PF is instrument for your retirement savings. So, even if it is deducted from your salary, it is your money being deposited in your retirement savings account. There are some rules and regulations on withdrawals from this account, ofcourse, which we will cover in one of our future posts.

      b) By professional pursuit is assume its a reimbursement for upgrading your educational qualification / professional skills. so it is not taxable in your hand. So no need to include it in the tax calculator. For Sodexho component, exemption has been granted completely for paid vouchers (such as Sodexho) provided to the employees. Further, even the employer is not levied any Fringe Benefit Tax on Sodexho Pass meal vouchers given to employees.

      Hope this clarifies your queries. In case you need any other clarification please feel free to respond.
