If you have missed out to deduct earlier, you can make the deduction now. However, what is important to note here is you have to make estimated salary for full year(Actual salary paid so far + projected salary for balance part of year) an arrive at annual income tax liability and devide the liability by number of years that are there ie., 4 months if you are going to start from this year.
Hope this clarify the first part.
For Professional tax, you will have to deduct on monthly basis and remit to your prof. tax authorities as per local law.
To comply with Income tax laws, it is employers responsibility to ensure that all employees tax liability is properly estimated and deduction has been made monthly based on such estimation.
Assume you have not complied with such provision, it will be a non compliance for which the disbursement officer is accountable.
Further, all employee salary information should be provided to Income tax deparment by the way of e filing of salary return with respect to employees who are under tax braket.
I assume you have some portion of salary as fixed component and some portion is variable component. You may be finding difficult to estimate variable component. However, you will have to estimate the fixed component and arraive at tax liability.
You have all detail of actual payment of salary paid from April 2007 to till date. Add fixed component of salary payable for December to March 2008 (on the assumption that he will be on your rolls). Make tax computation and made the TDS. Take due care of their Investment declarations and Housing loan related exemption and deductions available under Income tax Act to arrive at net tax liability.
Thanks for your input. We have fixed and variable component in salary break up. But the variable component is only allowances. Fixed part will be the basic salary, hra, conveyance. If we give any increment then the fixed component will affect right? In that case as per your saying I have to calculate the tax for the existing salary and if there is any increment happened then I have to amend the tax accordingly right?
Kindly clarify am I correct or not?
