What is a Professional Tax?

Professional Tax is a type of State Government Tax which is payable by all earning residents of the state, if they fall within Tax brackets set by the State Government.

As mentioned earlier, it is not a Central Government Tax like the Income Tax and is collected only by a certain no. of states in India.

An employee working in a company doesn't need to pay professional Taxes themselves since profession Taxes are deducted from their salaries by their employers.

Self employed persons whose income falls into the Tax bracket set for professional Tax are liable to pay it to the concerned State Government authorities and obtain a professional Tax registration certificate.

 What are the states that charge Professional Tax from their residents?

Following is a list of 15 states that charge Profession Tax from their earning citizens.

1. Andhra Pradesh, 2. Assam, 3. Bihar, 4. Gujarat, 5. Karnataka, 6. Kerala, 7. Madhya Pradesh, 8. Maharashtra, 9. Meghalaya, 10. Odisha, 11. Sikkim, 12. Tamil Nadu, 13. Telangana, 14. Tripura, 15. West Bengal.

It is evident that only citizens from these states are bound to pay profession Taxes to their respective State Governments.

People hailing from states other than the ones mentioned above do not need to pay any professional Taxes, as of now.
