Introduction

There are two main categories of taxes: Direct tax and Indirect tax.

Direct taxes

Direct taxes are paid straight to the tax authorities of the Government of India by the taxpayers. The taxpayers cannot transfer this type of tax to another entity for payment.

Such taxes fall under the jurisdiction of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT).

Example: Income Tax, Corporate Tax, Capital Gains Tax, etcetera.

Indirect taxes

Indirect tax are levied on goods and services, manufacture, sale, import, etc.
It is added to the price of the goods and services, by the seller.

Example: Goods and Service Tax (GST)
