Often people find it very confusing to decide whether to opt for old tax regime or new tax regime (w.e.f FY 2020-21). The same questions is also asked by the employer to their employees for the purpose of deducting TDS.

In the attached tax calculator help sheet is given which will assist a person to decide whether to opt for old tax regime or new tax regime at the time of opting with employer or filing return.

The only limitation with new tax regime is that though a person (other than having business or profession income) can opt for the same in each financial year, however a person having income from business or profession can opt only once in the life time. If he opts for new regime in a financial year (say FY 2023-24) but does not opt for new regime in any other financial year (say 2026-27) then in the lifetime he can’t opt for new regime again.
