Salaried employees earning up to Rs 5 lakh a year will not be required to file income tax returns from this year, says a Finance Ministry notification.

There are about 85 lakh salaried persons in the country whose yearly income, including earnings from other sources like bank deposits, does not exceed Rs 5 lakh.

“An individual whose total income for the relevant assessment year does not exceed Rs 5 lakh and consists of only income chargeable to income-tax under…salaries… (and) income from other sources, by way of interest from a saving account in a bank, not exceeding Rs 10,000” have been exempted from filing the returns from assessment year 2012-13”, it said.

Re: Income Tax relief limit raised to Rs. 5 lakh.

hey bro, the title is misleading I guess...the article says Individuals having total income upto 5 lakhs per annum need not file IT return. It doesn't mean that individual having total Income upto 5 lakhs won't have to pay any tax...its only that they don't have to file IT return.

Read thru these line in the article...
...Exemption from filing will be permitted only if the person has received a certificate of tax deduction in Form 16 from his or her employer.

To claim income tax refund, however, such persons will have to file returns....

No you still have to pay yaxes. but would not have to file a return, ofcourse you could do so, but not forced to.

Its still wise to file the return, its an important document, particularly if you are looking for bank loans etc.

(1) less direct tax = more indirect tax = price hike.
(2) ppl have more money at hand = ppl want to spend more = price hike.

(1) & (2) = more sales tax , service charge etc. = rich govt.

it's simple, isn't it ? :)
