1. SOLUTION TO GIVE RELEIF TO MIDDLE CLASS & LOWER CLASS FROM INCOME TAX WITHOUT DECREASING REVENUE

THIS SHOULD BE INCOME TAX SLABS. REMOVE 87A REBATE. ITS HIGH TIME THAT GOVERNMENT SHOULD RETHINK INCOME TAX BASIC EXEMPTION LIMIT

 FROM 5 LAC TO 10 LAC – 10%
3 FROM 10 LAC TO 20 LAC – 20%
4 FROM 20 LAC AND ABOVE – 30%

2. SOLUTION TO INCREASE TAX PAYER TRUST & TRUST IN OUR TAXATION SYSTEM

It’s high time that Government should think for giving some benefits to those tax payers (only individuals) who have
contributed to the Economy by paying high taxes in last 70 years. They are the true nation building partner. They are
the true contributors to growth of our country. Its high time Government should think of giving them back & salute
their contribution to economy, honesty & loyalty towards country. We have to see other countries how they respect
their High taxpayers like USA giving more retirement benefits based on Tax paid in past. A proper scheme should be
think upon.

SO WHAT CAN BE DONE?

MONEY / ASSETS DISCLOSED IN THIS SCHEME. 50% PAYMENT NOW AS TAX. 50% OF AMOUNT TO BE DEPOSITED IN BANK AS FIXED DEPOSITS with Lock in of 5 years. SO THAT 100% BLACK-MONEY WILL COME INTO SYSTEM.

4. SOLUTION TO TAP ON MOST IGNORED AREA WHERE INCOME TAX IS NOT BEING PAID COMMONLY I.E AT THE TIME OF SHARES & SECURITEIS SOLD

THERE SHOULD BE TDS ON SALE OF EQUITY SHARES / MF – CALCULATION OF STCG / LTCG FOR SHARES/ MF SOLD BY PERSON WHO IS REQUIRED TO DEDUCT TDS at THE END OF FIN.

THIS CALCULATION WILL BE SAME FORMULA OF LTCG SCHEDULE IN ITR

9. AN ALTERNATIVE PRESUMTIVE SCHEME OF TAXATION LIKE TURNOVER TAX. SOLUTION TO GET MORE REVENUE

AN ALTERNATE TAX TO BUSINESS CLASS FOR TURNOVER UPTO 5CR… IRRESPECTIVE WHETHER COMAPNY , INDIVIDUAL , LLP , FIRM ETC.. REPLACING SECTION 44AD , 44AE FOREVER.

A TURNOVER BASED TAX. NOT ON INCOME. SO AS TO GET SOME REVENUE FROM BUSINESS CLASS WHICH
HARDLY SHOWS PROFIT. RATES ARE JUST EXAMPLARY.

MANUFACTURING CONCERN – 1.5 % TAX ON TURNOVER…
TRADING CONCERN – 1.25% TAX ON TURNOVER…
SERVICING INDUSTRY – 2% TAX OF TOTAL RECEIPTS…
ALL OTHER – 2% TAX OF TOTAL TURNOVER / RECEIPTS…

FOR EXAMPLE TURNOVER IS 5 CRORE PRESUMTIVE TAX ( IN PLACE OF REGULAR INCOME TAX ) – 7.5 LACS AS TAX GOVT. CAN GET

THIS WILL WORK LIKE ALTERNATIVE SCHEME OF TAXATION FOR EVERY YEAR.

BUSINESS CONCERN WILL NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH ANY PROCEEDINGS / ANY SCRUTINY UNLESS FOUND UNDERREPORTING.
