DelhiDesk The Finance Minister has increased the standard deduction and exemption in the Union Budget for salaried taxpayers filing Income Tax Return for the financial year 2023-2024. Even after increasing the tax limit, if your income is coming in the tax category, then you can save tax by making multiple claims under the old tax system. House Rent Allowance (HRA) is a type of allowance given by an employer to its employee in lieu of payment of house rent expenses. HRA exemption is given to salaried people under section 10(13A) of the Income Tax Act. To get the benefit of HRA exemption, one has to choose the old tax regime. The calculation of tax exemption on HRA is based on 50% of basic pay plus DA for those living in metro and non-metro cities, and actual rent paid less than 10% of basic pay plus DA.
