Download NEW INCOME TAX SLABS — NEW SALARY SLABS AND RATE OF TAX ON SALARY SLABS – According to Section (9) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, the taxable income of a person for a tax year shall be the total income of the person for the year reduced (but not below zero) by the total of any deductible allowances of this Chapter of the person for the year. Any salary received by an employee in a tax year, other than salary that is exempt from tax under Income Tax Ordinance, shall be chargeable to tax in that year under the head Salary. Salary means any amount received by an employee from any employment, whether of a revenue or capital nature. According to Section (149) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, every person responsible for paying salary to an employee shall, at the time of payment, deduct tax from the amount paid at the employee’s average rate of tax computed at the rates specified in Division I of Part I of the First Schedule on the estimated income of the employee chargeable under the head “Salary” for the tax year in which the payment is made after making adjustment of tax withheld from employee under other heads. As per Finance Act, 2019, the salary slabs as well as tax rates have been revised with effect from 01-07-2019. As such all withholding tax agents disbursing salary are required to implement the revised tax rates from the same date.
