Profession Tax Amnesty Scheme Working –
Under the Profession Tax Amnesty Scheme – for Registered persons
In case you have registered yourself and have a Enrollment Number, working would be as under:
1. Basic Tax + Interest (@2% p.m)* + Penalty (Rs.300/year)
* The rate of interest is taken as 2% for ease of computation. Earlier it was 1.25%.
Now take entire Basic Tax Amount + 10% x (Interest + Penalty)
E.g: You have not paid profession tax for the 2005-2006, 2006-2007, 2007-2008.
So calculation would be –
YEAR = BASIC TAX + INTEREST + PENALTY
1. 2005-2006 = 1700 + 1020 + 300
2. 2006-2007 = 2500 + 720 + 300
3. 2007-2008 = 2500 + 150
Interest for 2005-2006 is calculated @ 2 % p.m for 30 months, 2006-2007 for 18 months & so on.
So total payment would be Rs.6700 + 189 + 60 = Rs.6949/-
In case of unregistered person, P.T would be waived upto 2002. Thereafter Basic Tax and Interest working would be the same as registered person. But penalty would be Rs.2/day instead of flat Rs.300 p.a.
