Income Tax exemption may raise further – Finance Minister
May raise tax exemption limit further: Arun Jaitley
NEW DELHI: Finance minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said that he does not favour burdening the salaried and middle-class with more taxes but would go after the evaders in widening the net.
In fact, he would encourage more money being put in the pockets of tax payers that will lead to spending and collection of more indirect taxes.
“This widening of the tax base. What does it mean? I pay the same indirect tax as my attendant. Our volume of consumption may be different. So everybody is paying indirect taxes.
