How to calculate tax for persons below 60 yrs age:

Suppose you have income from slary is Rs 5 Lakh.Further your saving us 80C are Rs 150,000.Then your taxable income becomes Rs 3,50,000.Further 3,50,000-2,50,000=100000,

Hence @ 5%  tax rate, your tax becomes 5/100*100000=Rs 5000.

now deduct Rs 2500 rebate us 87A as your income is 3,50,000.So your tax becomes 5000-2500=2500.Further Education cess @3% is rs 75.So add it to 2500 will become Rs 2575.

Also see the following Table: EXAMPLE-1

Similarly suppose your gross income is 6 lakh and your deduction us 80C are 150,000.Then net income will be Rs 4,50,000. now 4,50,000- 2,50,000=200000  so Tax @ 5% will become Rs 10,000.There will be no rebate us 87A here.As net income is Rs 4,50,000.

So education cess on 10,000 @3% is  300 Rs .Finally total tax becomes 10,300. See the following table as Example:
