Rebate under section 87A!

What is rebate under section 87A for F.Y 2023-24 and who can claim it?

Any help is much appreciated.



Hi @Trisha ,

​​​​​​​​​​​An individual who is resident in India and whose total income does not exceed Rs. 5,00,000 is entitled to claim rebate under section 87A​. Rebate under section 87A is available in the form of deduction from the tax liability. Rebate under section 87A will be lower of 100% of income-tax liability or Rs. 12,500. In other words, if the tax liability exceeds Rs. 12,500, rebate will be available to the extent of Rs. 12,500 only and no rebate will be available if the total income (i.e. taxable income) exceeds Rs. 5,00,000.

Further, a maximum rebate of Rs. 25,000 is allowed under section 87A, If the total income of an resident individual, who is opting for the new tax scheme under Section 115BAC(1A), is up to Rs. 7,00,000. Further, if the total income of the resident individual (opting section 115BAC(1A) exceeds Rs. 7,00,000 and the tax payable on such income exceeds the difference between the total income and Rs. 7,00,000, he can claim a rebate with marginal relief to the extent of the difference between the tax payable on such total income and the amount by which it exceeds Rs. 7,00,000

Hope this helps.
