Tax system

Indian Tax rules became very tough and unbearable for the individual. So far the salary class people were most sufferer under this tax net since they can not hide the income. There are plenty of small vendors who are earning more than double comparing to a medium employee, but there is no source to monitor their income. It is necessary to bring all the people whether they do the business in low level or in high to pay a portion of their earnings to income tax department. It is the mandatory duty of local authorities to monitor the business people and what level they are earning. If you compare a simple pan vendor in a good locality he makes business in five figures daily where as he is safe from the tax department. The law must be same for every earner. The poor senior citizen keeping their valuable deposits with the bank for all his entire life what he earned and on this deposit, the tax charging is not fair. The interest on deposits must be out tax review. As already told the senior citizen's monthly expenditure from these interest and no other sibling to take care of them . Though they may have two or three children earning in good, but after their marriage, they do not like to share a portion to their parents . May be intentionally or by force from his family side. At-least the senior citizen aged 65 and may be exempted from interest income tax preview. As the age going further he may not be able to with stand with the income what he gets by sparing his major portion on medicine and treatment. The Government must view a positive attitude towards these senior citizen. more

Dear Venkatesh ji, what Mr. Santoshji said is exactly true. Our Indians have very bad impressions in most of foreign countries. Every body knows our mental attitude for discipline, sincerity, honesty, which Indian people have. more  
tax systems are broken even in USA. but if we think we are smart why are we not able to devise a better system. we have been at it for considerable time but every finance minister squeezes the guys who are honest. form 15 H for retired senior citizens was applied for each deposit. now from 2014-15 budget total interest on total deposits within a bank come under the ambit of TDS. what I wish to point out is that we keep doing all these micro-adjustments to tighten the noose on the existing taxpayers but the vast ocean of non tax- payers who are swimming in black money are going scot free and laughing all the way to the bank. where is the smartness of Indians if we cannot expand the tax base. according to "Economist" only 3% or 36 million are paying personal income tax. that is a dismal show. ache din is already there for these non-taxpayers, they don't have to wait.it is only the honest taxpayers who are credulously waiting for ache din. as regards greatness of Indians pointed out by Mr Venkatesh Prasad, I wish to point out a few factors about the reality- 1. we have no hesitation in pissing by roadside of all ages ( swach bharat abhiyan hope changes this) 2. corruption and dishonesty-pl do a real estate transaction and visit the revenue dept for registering the property. 3. visit any govt office and check how many hours they work. by the way we are strong on tradition and keep doing things the same way as in 1945 with messengers, peons, dog eared files. 4. please drive in any metropolis and if you have BP it is not advisable to do this. 5. we also appear to be score high on rapes-our countryman's libido appears unfettered! 6.please stand in any que and see how many try to by-pass the que. we totally lack discipline, manners, or culture. I am sorry to point out all this but these are true and have remained unchanged after 60 years. yes the only thing we can be proud of is our spiritual heritage and the success of those who have gone abroad, adapted and succeeded. they have brought good name to India- but within the country we are still living on past glory. more
