Dear All, Kindly help me understand, how to calculate tax on the incentives paid on monthly basis to employees. Regards sandeep kaur

Dear Sandeep, Incentives paid to employees are fully taxable in nature; and they need to be added to the total taxable salary to compute the taxes. Regards Rahul

There is no separate rate applicable for Incentives. This is paid as %age to the 'sales turn over' or as a fixed sum. It need not be regular every month but could be randomly paid. In many firms it's also paid - in lieu of OT wages; for regular attendance; 'NIL' leave availed; achievement of sales targets; production linked basis etc. In whatever manner it's paid still its part of salary paid and therefore it's part of 'taxable income' and appropriate rate of tax has to be deducted as TDS or IT. In case, even after adding the income received as Incentive but still within/ less than/below the 'taxable income' i.e. Rs.2.5/3.00 lakhs as the case may be, then there is no IT payable by the concerned.
