Professional tax is a state-level tax levied on individuals engaged in various professions, trades, or employment. It is a form of direct tax imposed by state governments in India. Employers are responsible for deducting this tax from the salaries of their employees and remitting it to the respective state government. The tax rates are structured based on the income slabs of the taxpayers and may vary from state to state. Professionals such as doctors, lawyers, chartered accountants, and others are typically subject to professional tax. The revenue generated from professional tax contributes to state finances and is used for funding various developmental and administrative activities. Failure to pay professional tax can result in penalties or legal consequences, as it is mandatory for eligible individuals to comply with the tax laws. Professional tax serves as an additional source of revenue for state governments and helps in ensuring fiscal stability and resource mobilization at the state level
