    Dear All,

    Please check following S-NOTE for Karnataka State Professional Tax changes 2015-16

    2157610 – Karnataka State Professional Tax changes 2015-16

    Recently profession tax changes has come in Karnataka state with effect from 01.04.2015  for senior citizens.

    Profession tax exemption to persons drawing salary/ wages less than 15000/- in a month.

    Profession tax exemption to senior citizens who have attained age of 60 years

    Solution:-

    1.Please note that Ptax slab changes are done within the customizing tables V_T7INP4 and V_T7INP3 and need to be handled at customer end because C-tables’ maintenance can be done by customers.

    2.For the age-limit, delimit the IT0588 – Subtype 0003 (Ptax) when the employee reaches the age limit and the Ptax will cease to deduct.

    Thanks

    Omprasad Reddy
