WHY IS PROFESSIONAL TAX REGISTRATION DIFFERENT IN A DIFFERENT STATE?

As the state government levies the professional tax that’s the major reason it differs in each state. Each state declares a slab, and the professional tax is deducted based on these slabs. In many states and union territories, the professional tax is not registered as it is not charged at all. The professional tax is paid in 12 equal installments, in such situations where the source of income is falling under the sectors they will be liable for separate tax.

As each state has its regulations and laws on the professional tax registration in Bangalore thus professional tax varies from state to state. However, a slab system is followed by all the states. The slab system is based on the income of the individual. Hence, the state government levies the tax based on income. Understanding and acting accordingly require a lot of time and focus. Mibook has a set of procedures following which makes the registration process easy and reliable for an organisation.
