Types of Taxes – Direct & Indirect Tax(Trick To Remember)- Imp. for IBPS, SSC, Govt Exams

A fee or contribution charged by a government on a product, income, or activity is called Tax.

If tax is levied directly on personal or corporate income, then it is a direct tax.
If tax is levied on the price of a good or service, then it is called an indirect tax.

Why Tax is Charged?

The purpose of taxation is to finance government expenditure and various development expenditure of the country. One of the most important uses of taxes is to finance public goods and services, such as street lighting and street cleaning.


1) DIRECT TAXES——- “WePro.Co.In”

We:-wealth tax: Wealth tax is imposed on the wealth possessed by individuals in a country. The tax is on a person’s net worth which is assets minus liabilities.
In India, you need to pay it whether or not they yield any returns. Tax laws say that every individual and Hindu Undivided Family whose net wealth exceeds ₹30 lakh is required to pay wealth tax.

The tax, based on the value of the assets as on March 31, is charged at the rate of 1 per cent of the amount that exceeds the ₹30-lakh limit.

Some of India’s Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements (DTAAs) provide relief from double taxation for wealth tax as well. So, if you have paid wealth tax in any other country, you can expect some relief.
