What are Exemptions

  • Income which is not taxable is called Exempt Income.
  • Government has given lots of tax concessions called Exemptions
  • If exemption is given,by government, no tax is payable Under Income tax Act.

   Example: - Agricultural Income is exempt


What are Deductions

  Items which are reduced from Income are called Deductions.


                          Gross Total Income

            Less:     Deductions

                         Net total Income


Hence Deductions lead to decrease in Income and hence decrease in tax.
