Hi friends need your help.
A person is an insurance agent. He gets commission income per month exceeding 1 lakh.Is he liable to deduct P.Tax from his employees?
Further is he required to pay P.Tax himself as he is a professional?

Professional tax will be dealt by the state professional tax acts.

So in my opinon kindly refer your state's professional tax act for better understanding.

Following is a sample for Andhra Pradesh's professional tax act website.

1. Self employed to pay tax himself

My Question for professional tax is

 

As per Maharashtra Professional tax act 1975 and its amendments, The tax slab are

up to Rs.5000.00                              Nil

Rs.5001 to 10000.00                       175per month

Rs.10001 and above Rs.                 200per month and for february Rs.300.00

 

if an employee salary of Rs.11000.00 per month, we are deducting professional tax Rs.200.00 but any perticular month his salary  is gone below 10000.00 for any reason then how much tax we can deduct Rs.200.00 or Rs.175.00

 

if any employee salary of Rs.4500.00 per month, we can not deduct professtion tax, but any perticulars month we pay to these employee Rs.6000.00 (extra amount paid like arrears, overtime, incentive etc.) then, can we deduct professional tax from these employee or not
