Budget 2024: Income Tax Reforms on Cards? What Middle Class Hopes From Nirmala Sitaraman’s Budget

Explore the anticipated income tax reforms for the middle class in Budget 2024

Budget 2024: With the impending Interim Budget 2024 set to be unveiled by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the middle class eagerly awaits potential income tax revisions. Here’s what’s on the horizon:

Potential Changes in Income Tax Slabs

Expectations run high for a revamp in income tax exemption limits, potentially soaring from ₹2.5 lakh to ₹5 lakh. The revision aims to alleviate the tax burden on the middle class. Notable changes in the tax slabs include:

  • No tax on income up to ₹3 lakh
  • 5% tax for income between ₹3-6 lakh
  • 10% tax for income between ₹6-9 lakh
  • 15% tax for income between ₹9-12 lakh
  • 20% tax for income between ₹12-15 lakh
  • 30% tax for income above ₹15 lakh

Increase Section 80C Limit

Anticipations are rife for an elevation in the investment deductions limit under Section 80C, currently fixed at ₹1.5 lakh. This enhancement would bolster tax savings and investment opportunities, crucial for financial growth.

Raising Standard Deduction

Calls for an escalation in the standard deduction from ₹50,000 to ₹1 lakh echo amidst mounting medical and fuel expenses. An amplified standard deduction would alleviate financial strain on taxpayers.

Relief Measures for Homebuyers

Proposals advocate for a separate deduction for home loan repayments under Section 80C, distinct from other eligible expenses. Such a provision would alleviate the burden on taxpayers while facilitating homeownership aspirations.

Enhanced 80D Deduction Limit

To combat soaring healthcare costs, there’s a plea to augment the deduction limit under Section 80D for medical insurance premiums. The proposed increase, from ₹25,000 to ₹50,000 for individuals and ₹50,000 to ₹75,000 for senior citizens, aims to promote affordable healthcare access.

As Budget 2024 looms, these anticipated reforms could redefine tax structures and alleviate financial constraints for the middle class.
