Taxability of Agriculture Income

What is Agriculture Income

Ans. As per Section 2(1A) agricultural income means:-

  • Any rent or revenue derived from land which is situated in India and is used for agricultural purposes.
  • Any income derived from such land by agriculture operations including processing of agricultural produce so as to render it fit for the market or sale of such produce.
  • Any income attributable to a farm house subject to satisfaction of certain conditions specified in this regard in section 2(1A).
  • Any income derived from saplings or seedlings grown in a nursery shall be deemed to be agricultural income


To Calculate Income Tax on Gross Total Income that contains Agriculture income, we have to follow these 3 steps: –

  • STEP 1: – First add up your Non Agriculture Income and your Agriculture Income and then Calculate Tax on it at the normal rate.
  • STEP 2: – Secondly, Add up your Basic Exemption limit with your agriculture Income and then calculate tax at normal rate.
  • STEP 3: – Now deduct STEP 2 from STEP 1

Resultant will be your Tax and afterwards deduct rebate, if any and add cess on it.
