P Tax Deduction Rule

atoz Started The Discussion:

Hello,

How to deduct P Tax for the companies having branches in different states. Our office is headquartered at bhubaneswar and have branches in different states. What P tax slab need to be deducted from the employees? Should it be based on the state in which they are posted or as per the state from where the salary would get credited. Please reply.

Thanks,
Sangeeta

Dear Sangeeta Ji,

The profession tax is leviable on the basis of posting of the concerned member of staff. The rates of concerned state government for profession tax would apply to the staff in that state only. Even if one is transferred in the middle of a financial year from one state to another, the profession tax in still to be deducted at the rates prevailent in the state of last posting (monthwise) and remitted to the concerned state government authoity. It has no connection with the headquarters of the employer firm. Likewise, public holidays and other local laws are also applicable to the employees state-wise and not on the basis of headquarters' situation in some particular state.

Mr. Shyam Agarwal has given the right answer. PT is concerned with individual states and hence may vary. So you have to ask your office in the concerned state to deduct the tax and remit to the respective state government.
