Professional tax query - self employed and salaried

11 April 2024 I am a salaried individual and my employer deducts professional tax of 2500 every year. The same is deductible under Salary head while filing IT Return.

Now if I were to start freelancing activity, wherein if I were to setup proprietorship firm with UDHYAM, trade licence, GST etc. do I need to additionally enrol myself in professional tax?
I am asking the query since I am already paying professional tax as salaried individual. Do i need to pay two times? My PAN should already be recorded.
Moreover, I have heard that those who have registered under GST in West Bengal would need to pay professional tax, irrespective of turnover. Is that true?
What will be the implications?

12 April 2024 No need. Professional Tax deducted by employer is enough. No need registration for Your business/profession.
