Every employer registered under the Profession Tax Act is required to furnish a statement in Form 5A every month showing the salary and wages paid to employees and the amount of tax deducted.
In case of salary or wage earners whose salary or wage for a month is not less than Rs.10,000, the employer is liable to deduct Profession Tax payable under this Act. It is the responsibility of the employer to deduct tax and pay on behalf of all such employees within 20 days of expiry of the month. If the amount of tax deducted in a month is less than Rs.5,000, the employer could opt for payment of such tax within 20 days of expiry of a Quarter. Quarter means period ending 31 May, 31 August, 30 November, and 28/29 February
