How to Calculate Total Income Tax Liability?

While determining the total income tax payable through online I-Tax calculation, enter the accurate data about the following in the tax calculator.

  • Your gross yearly income from profits/salary
  • Income from investments, rent, and other sources
  • Tax exemptions if they are applicable
  • Transport allowance and house rent

Once you fill these, you will be able to see your total income tax liability. If TDS is automatically deducted from your salary, you can check form 26AS which functions as a TDS calculator.

Simply subtract the TDS from the total income tax liability to get the amount you need to submit online via Challan 280. If you pay more than the total tax liability, the government reimburses the difference within a month of filing your income tax.

In case you file the IT returns after the due date, you will have to pay a penalty under section 234F and interest under section 234A. The due dates can vary on the basis of your source of income. If you are employed and are earning a salary, your due date of filing income tax returns is July 31 of the assessment year.

An easy way to save on taxes is to make investments. At Bajaj Housing Finance, we help you fulfil your financial and personal goals by offering a home loan and loan against property at affordable interest rates.
