Tax Rebate under section 87A
While tabling Union Budget 2013, Finance Minister had introduced a new section 87A to help individual taxpayers in lowering the tax outflow from their pocket.
However, the tax rebate benefit had not been made available to all taxpayers but restricted to only Individual Taxpayers and that too for only Indian citizens irrespective of being male or female.
Further, the tax rebate could be cherished only by individual taxpayers having the Net Total Income below Rs.5 lakhs. Since there are no proposed changes to tax rebate available under section 87A in the budget 2015, it will continue giving benefit to the medium class taxpayers post budget. Thus, tax rebate under section 87A is available for Assessment Year 20161-7 i.e. Financial Year 2015-16
