Marginal relief & its effects on your Income from our perspective (Part – 2)

What is marginal relief and how is it calculated?

  • The surcharge levied is subject to marginal relief to ensure the payable amount does not exceed the income which is in excess of the threshold.
  • Individuals with a total taxable income between ₹50 lakh to ₹1 cr will pay a surcharge of 10%, those with an income between ₹1 cr to ₹2 cr will pay 15%, those with an income between ₹2 cr to ₹5 cr will pay 25% & those with an income above ₹5 cr will pay 37%.
  • But surcharge rates applicable on Short term capital gain(111A) & Long term capital gain(112A) are if gain is between ₹50 lakh to ₹1 cr will pay a surcharge of 10% & those with gain above ₹1 cr will pay 15% (Rates of 25% & 37% are not applicable here).
  • However, the actual surcharge levied is subject to marginal relief to ensure the payable amount does not exceed the income which is in excess of the threshold. But what exactly is marginal relief and how is it calculated?

Marginal relief

According to the Income-tax Act, 1961, a marginal relief is given to individuals whose taxable income is beyond the threshold limit after which surcharge is payable, but the net income above the threshold is less than the surcharge.

Examples

Now, with the help of few cases we will see different rates of surcharge applicable when short term capital gain (111A) & other income is earned or long term capital gain (112A) & other income is earned. In our examples we will take different income combination on which surcharge is applicable.
