New Delhi

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has proposed an alternative tax regime with low tax rates on the one hand in the Budget 2020, and on the other hand has also fixed the maximum limit for investment in some tax saving schemes. According to the budget proposal, the three investment schemes that offer tax benefits EPF, National Pension Scheme ( NPS ) and retirement funds can now come under the tax net, as a maximum investment limit of Rs 7.5 lakh has been set. However, this will only affect the employees with high salary package.

April 1, 2021 , the maximum limit for total investment in NPS , Retirement Fund and Provident Fund in a year will be Rs 7.5 lakh and taxable if invested above it. It has also been proposed in the budget that the interest and dividend amount earned last year will also be taxable.

mathematics of tax by
an example. Suppose the basic salary of a person is Rs 30 lakh, then the total contribution made by the employer will be ...

Employer's contribution to PF - Rs 3.60 lakh NPS -
Rs 3 lakh
retirement fund - Rs 1.50 lakh
Total investment - Rs 8.10 lakh
Taxable amount - Rs 60,000

There was no upper limit
till now, the contribution by the employer to PF and NPS was taxfree and there was no upper limit also. Employers have to contribute 12% of basic salary in EPF and 10% in NPS to employees. Tax exemption can also be availed in this.

have an impact on those with high salary packages, those
who have less salary, this proposal will not have any effect. Whereas, the salary package of people with high salary income is designed in such a way that a major part of their salary can be put in these three funds, so that this part of salary does not come under the tax net.

Budget 2020: Advantage or disadvantage in new income tax option?
Budget 2020: Advantage or disadvantage in new income tax option?

In the budget presented on Saturday, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has given two options to the taxpayers to pay income tax. In the new option, tax rates are kept low, but in this, taxpayers are denied all tax exemptions. This means that if you opted for a new tax option, you would lose the benefits of section 80C, section 80D, tax exemption on HRA and tax exemption on housing loan. Hence taxpayers are confused about which option will be beneficial for them, old or new.
