For a businessman, his net profits will constitute income. Income may also flow from investments in the form of Interest, Dividend, and Commission etc. Under the Act, all incomes earned by persons are classified under 5 income heads, such as:

Even if your piece of real estate is not let out, it will be considered earning rental income and you will need to pay tax on it. If you have home loan then interest part of it would also be considered as negative income from House property..
  3. Income from Business or Profession: Income earned through your profession or business is charged under the head ‘profits and gains of business or profession.’ The income chargeable to tax is the difference between the credits received on running the business and expenses incurred.
  4. Income from capital gains: Any profit or gain arising from transfer of capital asset held as investments(such as house, jewellery, are chargeable to tax under the head capital gains. The gain can be on account or short- and long-term gains.

Marginal Relief under New tax Regime means the tax payable should not exceed the income that exceeds Rs 7 lakhs.

For Example : Mr Ram has a net taxable income of Rs 715000 for FY 2023-24. He wants to opt for New Tax Regime. In this case, he is not eligible for rebate u/s 87A as his income exceeded Rs 7 lakhs. He is required to pay a tax of 26500(excluding Edu cess) . In this case, the income exceeding Rs 7 lakhs (7,15,000-7,00,000=15000) is less than the tax payable of Rs 26500. Hence the marginal relief is applicable on his taxes payable for FY 2023-24

After applying marginal relief, his tax payable is 15000 (excluding educ.cess) which we will be a benefit to Mr Ram
