Agriculture income is exempt under the Indian Income Tax Act. This means that income earned from agricultural operations is not taxed. The reason for exemption of agriculture income from Central Taxation is that the Constitution gives exclusive power to make laws with respect to taxes on agricultural income to the State Legislature. However while computing tax on non-agricultural income agricultural income is also taken into consideration. As per Income Tax Act income earned from any of the under given three sources meant Agricultural Income;

(i) Any rent received from land which is used for agricultural purpose.
(ii) Any income derived from such land by agricultural operations including processing of agricultural produce, raised or received as rent in kind so as to render it fit for the market, or sale of such produce.
(iii) Income attributable to a farm house subject to the condition that building is situated on or in the immediate vicinity of the land and is used as a dwelling house, store house etc.
Now income earned from carrying nursery operations is also considered as agricultural income and hence exempt from income tax.

In order to consider an income as agricultural income certain points have to be kept in mind:

(i) There must me a land.
(ii) The land is being used for agricultural operations.
(iii) Agricultural operation means that efforts have been induced for the crop to sprout out of the land (iv) If any rent is being received from the land then in order to assess that rental income as agricultural income there must be agricultural activities on the land.
(v) In order to assess income of farm house as agricultural income the farm house building must be situated on the land itself only and is used as a store house/dwelling house.

Partly agriculture income
Partly agricultural income consists of both the element of agriculture and business, so non agricultural part of the income is taxed. Some examples for partly agricultural income are given below:

Tax Liability on Agricultural Income


The concept of Marginal Relief is applicable in the following Situations.

I. In the case of non corporate assessee (Individual ,HUF,AOP,BOI, Co Operative Society,Firm,AOP)where the total Income exceeds Rs.1 Core and Surcharge of 10 % becomes leviable;
II. In the Income domestic companies ,where Surcharge is applicable @5% for total Income above Rs.1 crore and @10% if exceeds Rs.10 Crores; and
III. In the case of Foreign Companies, where surcharge is applicable @2% for total Income above Rs.1 Crore and 5% if the it exceeds Rs.10 Cores .

Marginal Relief shall be available only where the tax on account of surcharge exceeds the amount of income exceeding Rs.1 core or Rs.10 Crores,as the case may be .In such a case,tax payble on account of surcharge would be restricted to the amount exceeding Rs.1 core or Rs.10 Crore as the case may be
The Metholodology of Computation of Marginal relief can be better understood by applying the following Steps.

Tax and Surcharge as Computed above shall be increased by education cess @ 3 %.
