There is no specific number of employees required to pay professional tax. The employer has to deduct professional tax from all his employees. It is so because every individual with an income is liable to pay the tax. However, if the number of employees in a company exceeds 15, the professional tax has to be deposited to the State government on a monthly basis. On the other hand, if the number of employees is lesser than 15, then quarterly depositions can be made. Although, the tax is to be deducted every month from an employee's salary.
