Income Tax

Income Tax is, therefore, generally recognized as a highly equitable form of taxation. A tax levied on income can nor normally be shifted to others and thus its incidence is on those for whom it is intended. Since income tax is progressive in nature, it tends to reduce economic disparity. Tax rates and method of calculating taxable income varies with fiscal status of the tax payer.
