Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:

Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
