How tax calculator can help you calculate your taxable income?

Income Tax
Income Tax is a tax that is supposed to be paid by every business and every individual by law. These individuals or businesses are those that earn an income which is a significant amount on per annum basis with any services that they provide, savings account, products, pensions that they receive, businesses that they deal in, etc. in the country of India. The income taxes that people pay have to be shown on a income tax return sheet in order to process the returns and show how much taxes have been paid. This process should be done and dusted within the prescribed deadline. After that date, no filings for the taxes will be accepted for the purpose of tax returns. Even non - resident Indians (NRIs) have to pay taxes in the country as per law but it will only be for the income or salaries that they have generated or received with services they worked for in India and not in the country that they are a resident of.
