Marginal Relief | Meaning and Definition

What is marginal relief?

A person having an income more than the 30% income tax band is subject to a surcharge on income tax, according to the Income Tax Act. Income tax with supercharging is a type of fee that taxpayers must pay in addition to their regular tax. The goal of the surcharge is that persons who are financially wealthy should pay a greater tax rate to the government than people who are financially poor.

According to the Income Tax Act, marginal relief is a relief provided to people and businesses that are exempt from paying a surcharge. For many people and businesses, marginal relief alleviates the burden of the fee. 

Marginal Relief for Individuals

Certain taxpayers are eligible for marginal relief up to the gap between the excess tax payable on income that goes above Rs 50 Lakhs and the amount which is above Rs. 50 lakhs.


Marginal Relief for Companies

Only organizations with overall revenue of more than Rs.1 crore but less than Rs.10 crores will be eligible for marginal relief, which means that the income tax which is required to be paid for higher incomes cannot go above the income tax which is needed to be paid on Rs.1 crore by more than the total income amount that surpasses Rs.1 crore.
