  2. HARIHARAN IYER says:

    sir,

    My assumption is th word “Senior Citizen” is tho who crosse the age of 60 years.

    Since Sr.Citizens are exempted from paying professional tax, why in that case the age is limited to 65 years.

    Whether a person crossed the age of 60 years and is working in a company, is he liable to pay professional tax or he is exempted from paying PT.

  48. S S Shanbhag says:

    I am replying to several questions raised by readers on Profession Tax in the State of Maharashtra.
    1) Irrespective of your income, any professional, who is not handicapped and under the age of 65 years, has to pay Rs2,500 Profession Tax every year.
    2) If you are a handicapped 40% or more, get a medical certificate from any Civil Surgeon or Municipal Hospital, and apply for full exemption of Profession Tax. You apply to your district Profession Tax Officer, who sits in your district Sales Tax Office. If you find it any difficulty, write an application under Right to Information Act, 2005.
    3) About 3 years ago, Maharashtra Government has changed profession tax registration number, and has informed it to all the Profession Tax payers by a challan,sent to their address. Still some people have not received their new numbers. Very few Banks have taken pain to inform profession tax payers to inform their new numbers, while paying the profession tax. Instead Banks have simply refused to accept Profession Tax, by saying that tax payer has quoted wrong profession tax number. If you find any difficulty in knowing your revised profession tax number, then write to your Profession Tax Officer to know your revised profession tax number, by giving him your old profession tax number. If he still does not give you, the write a letter to him under Right to Information Act, 2005.
    Similarly, if you face any difficulty in paying your profession tax online, write a complaint to your Profession Tax Officer, and still he does not reply, write a letter under Right to Information Act, 2005.

    due date for payment of PTE is 30th June of each year.

  97. Ankit says:

    PT for Proprietor / Partners / directors / Pvt Ltd. Co – Rs. 2500/- respectively.
    No PT to be paid for the Firm if it is a proprietary firm.
    No PT to be paid in the name of the Partnership Firm
    Directors and Pvt. Ltd Co. are 2 different entities in the eyes of the law so for all the directors as well as PT for the Company needs to be paid – Rs. 2500/- individually

  98. Ankit says:

    Profession Tax is attracted in the State from which the salary is paid to the employee no matter where the employee is located. In Maharashtra, PT is attracted on salaries paid in/from maharashtra. So, if your HO is located in Maharashtra and paying you salary from Maharashtra and even if you are in some another state where PT is not attracted, PT will be still deducted from your salary

  99. Ankit says:

    if the person gets a certificate of handicap from government authorized hospital, he shall get full exemption from payment of PT. Even his Employer need not deduct any amount of PT from his/her salary if the certificate is kept on recrods

  100. Ankit says:

    What your sales tax consultant is paying is your personal PTE payment and not for any worker not employed in your company. What he is doing is absolutely correct.

  101. Ankit says:

    TDS @ 10% what your institute is deducting under Income Tax Act. Profession Tax is different from Income Tax and it has no relation with each other. Payment of PT from your income is still a must.

  102. Ankit says:

    65 is the last age upto which 1 needs to pay his PTEC. After completing 65 yrs, i.e. when he attains 66 yrs of age, he shall not be liable anymore for payment of PTEC in his name.

  103. Ankit says:

    Jitendra,

    you either need to show your employer that you have made payment of Rs. 2500/- or let him deduct the amount of PT from your salary as long as you are gonna work and get your PTEC number cancelled.

  104. Sundeep says:

    This is a part of the circular no .6T of 2003, dated 22nd January, 2003

    This shows that the person attaining 65 years is exempted from the next financial year than the year in which he attains 65 years


    The corrections/changes in records of tax payer may become necessary due to one or more of the following causes:—

    The Enrolled person has attained the age of 65 years and has become entitled to exemption from Profession Tax as a senior citizen. However the Senior Citizen will be liable to pay the tax for the financial year in which he/she attains the age of 65 years and would be exempted from the next financial year.

    I dont know whther this has been changed of corrected in any other circular

    In continuation of my earlier reply, i am giving you reply to some of your points, not covered in my earlier reply.
    Last date to pay Profession Tax for the financial year 2011-2012 is 30.6.2011. If you already have Profession Tax Code, the you can pay Rs.2,500 by Cheque drawn on the same bank, where you are paying the Profession Tax, or by cash. I am having my Savings Account in State Bank, and I pay there my Profession Tax by Cheque of that Bank, drawn in the bank’s name. This gives an entry in your pass book, for paying your Profession Tax.
    When you attain age of 65 years, no Profession Tax is payable. For example, in June 2011, you are paying profession Tax for the financial year 2011-2012. if you are completing your 65 years of age in the period 1.4.2011 to 31.3.2012, then, from June 2012, you need not pay you;r profession tax.

  113. Shirish Shanbhag says:

    Profession tax paid by the individual is not refundable, in Maharashtra.
    Profession tax for four years, if paid in lumpsum, before last date to pay it, that before 30th June, then, he need not pay THE PROFESSION TAX FOR FIFTH YEAR. Here also, Maharashtra Government has made it amply clear that, within these five years, if circumstances forces the Assessee to close down his business, whatever the Profession tax he has paid in advance is not refundable.Similarly, if by chance, Maharashtra Government lowers its Profession Tax within these five years, whatever the amount paid by the Assessee, its difference in Profession Tax is not refundable by the Government to the Assessee.
    Under these circumstances, Profession Tax is non-refundable item in Maharashtra State.
    If you wish, you may verify this fact by putting a Right to Information Application to Profession Tax Commissioner, Maharashtra, Mazgaon, Mumbai – 400010.

    Professional Tax is a seperate tax charged by the state government. Though the person is exempt from income tax. He is liable to pay profession tax. Currently if he is getting salary above Rs. 5000/- he is liable to pay Profession Tax in Maharashtra state. However the amount of profession tax paid is exempt from income tax if the prson is liable to pay tax.

  206. kalpesh says:

    Hi, my queries regarding Payment of Prof. Tax payable by a company are as follows:
    1) Is a Director counted as employee while determining the annual p. Tax Liability of a company? Suppose a Company has one employee & 2 directors, will the company be liable for Rs. 2000/- P. tax or 2500/-
    2) In case a company is formed and established in a middle of year say August 2009, Does it have to pay Prof. tax on proportionate basis or for full year of 2009- 2010.
    3) Further I assume that Prof. Tax is to be deducted only on salary withdrawn. If a person is appointed director of a company in August but takes salary from October onwards, does he have to pay Prof. Tax for 2 months of August & September?
    Kindly respond back as soon as possible.
