What is an Income Tax (Old vs New Regime) Calculator?

An income tax calculator is an online calculator that helps estimate the income tax based on a person's annual income. Income tax can be paid either as tax deducted at source during the disbursement of a monthly salary or through filing returns in the Income Tax Portal. The income tax calculator considers various features, such as annual income, employee PF, house rent allowance, and exemptions, to calculate the income tax. This calculator also helps to decide whether the old regime or the new regime is better for a particular person.

This income tax calculator has been updated based on the Union Budget for the financial years 2023–24 and 2024–25.

Only a very few exemptions and deductions are allowed.

Which tax regime should I choose?

It varies from one person to another. You can work out your income tax amount under both the regimes and then choose the one that is best for your situation, and our calculator is best for this.

Every financial year, you can switch between old and new tax regimes. Even if you choose a new tax regime this financial year, you can switch back to the old tax regime in the next financial year, and vice versa. But there is one condition: You can switch between old and new tax regimes if you don't have any kind of business income. If you have any kind of business income, then you can switch back to the old tax regime only once. After that, you can't move to the new tax regime until your business income becomes zero.
