Overview

Professional Tax is a tax that the state government collects from salaried individuals working in government or private entities. It is also applicable for chartered accountants, lawyers, doctors, and many other professions. Many states in India impose the profession tax. All of these states have different rates. However, many states do not have any professional tax. The states that impose professional Tax are Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Odisha, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, Tripura, Telangana and West Bengal. 

The Profession Tax is deducted from the salary of the employees and deposits to the state government.

Rates of the professional Tax

The maximum amount payable as professional Tax every year is INR 2,500. However, various states have different rates. The professional is usually as per your annual income from the profession. The employer deducts this Tax at source and deposits it to the state government. But in case of other classes of individuals like CAs and lawyers, they are liable to pay the tax themselves. 

Employer’s responsibility

The employers who deduct the professional Tax from the salary of the employees must deposit it to the state government. The employers must file the returns to the tax department in the prescribed form within the due dates. Employers should also provide proof of tax payment if they do not enclose the proof the return would be deemed invalid.
