Dear All,
We are facing problem in professional tax calculation as few employees has recently joined and there working days is only 5 to 6 days.
How to calculate professional tax in Karnataka.
Please help me .

From India, Bangalore
Hi If at all the total salary is exceeding rs. 15000/- then you consider for PT deduction else no need to deduct. There is no option to contribute to PT based on the number of working days.

Thank you for your quick response.
Still I am confused in PT calculation.
Let's say , If Mr. ABC actual gross salary :- 15,000 per month
In month of Nov , LOP :- 4 days.
Total earning :-13000 (Earned gross).
In above mentioned case whether we have to deduct 200 Rs. professional tax or not , as his actual gross earning is Rs. 13000 due to 4 days LOP
Secondly , could you please tell me whether we have to calculate on Gross or net salary.

Hi Deepika
If Mr. ABC actual gross per month is 15000/- and due to any LOP if he is earning below 15000/- in that case you can't deduct the PT. Even the website will not allow to make payment for the employee who received gross wages less than 15000/-
PT is paid on the Gross Salary only

Ms.Deepika Jadhav,
What Mr.Jeevarathnam said is correct. You need not bother to deduct any Professional tax from the gross earning is less than Rs.15000/- per month. The PT deduction is applicable on gross salary only from 15001 and above .
