Income Tax calculator 2020 has now become a big requirement for a whole bunch of people because Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s Union Budget 2020 introduced new tax slabs. Now you can either opt in to the new tax regime and stop claiming any deductions to taxable income, or you can continue to pay as per the existing tax slab with several deductions. If all this has got you confused, here’s a very simple income tax calculator that will tell you whether the old tax regime will benefit you or if the new tax regime is better.
This income tax calculator has been launched by the government itself, so it’s as official as it gets. In this income tax calculator 2020, all you need to do is enter your total annual income, and the total amount of deductions you expect to claim. Deductions include PPF, EPF, investments in tax-saving mutual funds, health insurance, children’s tuition fees, fuel and conveyance reimbursements, etc. Be sure to add all of these things and input a single number as your total annual deduction.
Remember that Budget 2020 is applicable to the financial year that begins on April 1, 2020 and ends on March 31, 2021, so you should input your income based on what you expect to earn during that time.
