(1) Computation of total income

(a)       “Previous year” is the financial year (1st April to the following 31st March) during which the income in question has been earned.  “Assessment Year” is the financial year immediately following the previous year.

(b)       Total income is to be computed as follows, in the following order:

(i)     Classify all items of income under the following heads of income-

(A) Salaries; (B) “Income from house property”; (C) “Profit and gains from business or profession”; (D) “Capital gains”; and (E) “Income from other sources”.  [There may be no income under one or more of the heads at (A), (B), (D) and (E)].

(ii)  Compute taxable income of the current year (i.e., the previous year) under each head of income separately in the Schedules which have been structured so as to help you in making these computations as per provisions of the Income-tax Act.  These statutory provisions decide what is to be included in your income, what you can claim as an expenditure or allowance and how much, and also what you cannot claim as an expenditure/allowance.

(iii)   Set off current year’s headwise loss(es) against current year’s headwise income(s) as per procedures prescribed by the law. A separate Schedule is provided for such set-off.

(iv)   Set off, as per procedures prescribed by the law, loss(es) and/or allowance(s) of earlier assessment year(s) brought forward.  Also, compute loss(es) and/or allowance(s) that could be set off in future and is (are) to be carried forward as per procedures prescribed by the law.  Separate Schedules are provided for this.

(v)       Aggregate the headwise end-results as available after (iv) above; this will give you “gross total income”.

(vi)      From gross total income, subtract, as per procedures prescribed by the law, “deductions” mentioned in Chapter VIA of the Income-tax Act.  The result will be the total income.  Besides, calculate agricultural income for rate purposes.

(2) Computation of income-tax, education cess including secondary and higher education cess and interest in respect of income chargeable to tax

(a)       Compute income-tax payable on the total income.  Special rates of tax are applicable to some specified items.  Include agricultural income, as prescribed, for rate purposes, in the tax computation procedure..

(b)       Add Education cess including secondary and higher education cess as prescribed on the tax payable.

(c)       Claim relief(s) as prescribed by the law, on account of arrears or advances of salary received during the year or of double taxation and calculate balance tax payable.

(d)       Add interest payable as prescribed by the law to reach total tax and interest payable.

(e)       Deduct the amount of prepaid taxes, if any, like “tax deducted at source”, “advance-tax” and “self-assessment-tax”.  The result will be the tax payable (or refundable).

(3) Obligation to file return

(a)       Every individual and HUF has to furnish the return of his income if his total income before allowing deductions under section 10A or section 10B or section 10BA or  Chapter VI-A (i.e., if his gross total income referred to in item 10 of Part B-TI as increased by item 6 of Schedule 10A, item f of Schedule 10A and item f of Schedule 10A of this Form) exceeds the maximum amount which is not chargeable to income tax [Rs. 1,60,000/- in case of individuals below the age of 65 years (other than women) and HUF, Rs. 1,90,000/- in case of women below the age of 65 years, and Rs. 2,40,000/- in case of individuals who are of the age of 65 years or more at any time during the financial year 2010-11].
