Start Joint filing of Income Tax for married couples in India - Share the tax burden!

This petition had 8 supporters

I request people to go through the following post. We in India, file income tax as single individuals. However, many a times, incase of married couples,one partner maybe earning a very low salary,or could be a widower or could be unemployed or retired or may  have sacrificed their jobs in order to give enough time to their children for a better upbringing. But still, the working partner has to pay high taxes. In such cases, after the income tax deduction, they get very little to save and have to struggle to make ends meet because, the whole financial pressure of raising the family is borne by one partner. 

If married couples are allowed to file joint income tax, it would help them share the tax burden and result in greater tax savings.Joint assessment would not lead to higher tax, because, one partner has no or very little chargeable income.This would lead to greater relief to such families. This is already implemented in countries like the U.S.

So I request the Finance Ministry of India to consider this plea and implement this in India as well.

If you believe, this implementation can help someone, then, please sign this petition.
