What is Old and New Regime

The government introduced a new tax regime in 2019, in which the income tax slab rates are lower, but there is no tax exemption. The government implemented the new regime by eliminating 70 tax exemptions. At the same time, the slab rate in the old regime is higher, but it includes a direct tax exemption of Rs 3.50 lakh on home loan interest and principal, Rs 1.5 lakh under 80C and Rs 75 thousand on insurance. Apart from this, you get tax exemption on other options as well.

Why choose a regime?

The government has implemented the new tax regime by default from the 2023 budget. This means that if the investor does not choose any regime then his income will be assessed under the new regime and tax will be deducted at its rate. This means that if you have to take tax exemption on loans, investments or other allowances, you will have to choose the old tax regime yourself. For this, it is necessary to file the return before 31st July.

If you missed the deadline then…

If a taxpayer does not file their return by 31st July then such taxpayers will be given an opportunity to file billed ITR from 1st August 2024 to 31st December 2024. That is, such taxpayers will be able to file their returns by paying some penalty, but they will not be allowed to use the old tax regime. In this case, tax will be deducted directly from their earnings at the same rate by applying the new regime.
