Income Tax Relief Announced For Small Taxpayers
February, 29th 2016

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced two new measures to provide relief to small taxpayers in Budget 2016.

1) Mr Jaitley raised the deduction limit under Section 87A of the Income Tax Act from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 5,000 per annum. Under Section 87A, taxpayers first reduce Rs. 2,000 from their total tax payable. This section applies to those with total income of less than Rs. 5 lakh.

Mr Jaitley said the move will help more than 2 crore taxpayers.

2) The finance minister also announced relief for taxpayers who do not own a house and don't get house rent allowance from employers. So far, such taxpayers got a relief of Rs. 24,000 per year, which has now been raised to Rs. 60,000 per annum, Mr Jaitley said. The measure will provide "relief to those in rented houses", the finance minister added.

3) Mr Jaitley also announced an additional deduction of Rs. 50,000 on interest paid by first-time home buyers on home loans of up to Rs. 35 lakh, provided the house value doesn't exceed Rs. 50 lakh.
