There are two types of taxes, direct and indirect taxes.

India follows a 3 tier structure for the taxation system.

The direct taxes refer to income tax, wealth tax, and interest tax. There are several bodies that regulate the aspect of taxation in India.

Out of these taxes, the most prominent, is the Income Tax. It is governed by the Income Tax Act 1961. The income, which this act taxes, can originate from any source like a business, owning a house or property, increases got from ventures and compensations, and so forth. This is the act that characterizes how much the tax advantage on a settled store or a disaster protection premium will be.

Wealth Tax is regulated by The Wealth Tax Act 1951, and looks into taxation linked to the net wealth of a person, Hindu Undivided Family, or a company.

It was annulled in the financial backing declared in 2015. It has since been supplanted with an extra charge of 12% on people that win more than Rs. 1 crore for every annum. It is additionally material to organizations that have a revenue of over Rs. 10 crores for every annum. The new rules radically expanded the sum the government would gather in taxes as restricted the sum they would gather through the wealth tax.

Interest Act which is governed by the Interest Tax Act 1974, manages the tax that was payable on interest earned in certain particular circumstances. It’s observed that the Act does not matter to interest that was earned after March 2000.

All the significant indirect taxes have been clubbed into one category under the umbrella term of Goods & Services Tax. Certain indirect taxes have not been subsumed under the Goods & Services Tax, some of them are Custom Duty, Stamp Duty, vehicle Tax, Entry Taxes and Toll, etc.
