The ministry has said that the new tax regime is the ‘default’ tax system. However, taxpayers can choose the new or old tax system as per their convenience as per their convenience… The option to opt out of the new tax system is available till the filing of return for the year 2024-25.

How much is the tax?
In the new tax regime, there is no tax on annual salary of Rs 0-3 lakh. After this, 5% tax is levied on income of Rs 3 to 6 lakh, 10% on income of Rs 6 to 9 lakh, 15% on income of Rs 9 to 12 lakh, 20% on income of Rs 12 to 15 lakh and 30% on income above Rs 15 lakh.
