Taxation of Bonus Paid to Corporate Employees

Bookmark and Share

A proviso has been inserted in Clause (a)of sub section 2 of section 20 whereby any bonus paid or payable to corporate employees receiving salary income of Rs.One million or more (exculding bonus) shall be chargeable to tax at the rate of 30%. This is a one time levy and payable for the tax year 2010 only, so as to support the Internally Displaced People (IDP)for their rehabilitation.

Example # 1

Salary Income other than bonus = 1,000,000
Bonus amount = 300,000
Tax @ 9% at salary other than bonus = 90,000 (A)
Tax @ 30% at bonus = 90,000 (B)
Total Tax = 180,000 (A)+ (B)

Example # 2

Salary Income other than bonus = 900,000
Bonus amount = 100,000
Total Salary = 1,000,000
Tax @ 9% at salary other than bonus = 90,000 (A)
No Tax @30% at bonus as salary excluding bonus is less than one million (B)
Total Tax = 90,000 (A)+ (B)

That absurd levy may be deferred if the assessee obtains a stay order on his/her bonus amount as the matter is pending adjudication. The company however, shall still have to deduct the amount of tax on the bonus as illustrated above and in case the matter is decided by the competent court in favour of the assessee, he/she shall get the tax amount from the company. Otherwise the company shall have to deposit this amount in the government treasury if the appeal if decided against the employee.

Normal tax (@9% in this example) be levied on bonus amount or not. It seems that bonus will be included in taxable income in second case, but not in the first case.
