How to calculate monthly PCB income tax in malaysia

My monthly PCB income tax is increased much since march 2009, HR told me that Malaysia monthly income tax PCB deduction rate is changed since year 2009.

Income tax PCB calculation

Here’s the calculation.

1. Find your PCB amount in this Income tax PCB 2009 Chart

2. Calculate your taxable salary – Taxable Salary = (Gross Salary – EPF)

  1. EPF is equals to your 11% gross salary.
  2. EPF deduction is restricted to RM500 only, any amount above RM500 is consider lost.
Note
The PCB calculation is only take EPF as deduction. Please do not deduct your “SOCSO” and any other benefits.

Case Study 1

I’m single, no child, and my monthly salary is RM7000 (i hope so :) )

1) My EPF is RM7000 x 0.11 = RM770 (take maximum RM500 for deduction).
2) My taxable salary is RM7000-RM500 = RM6500
3) Income tax PCB 2009 Chart show RM6500 taxable salary need to pay RM589


My monthly PCB income tax is RM589.

Case Study 2

Married, wife is not working , 3 children, and monthly salary is RM4000 (How can survive in Malaysia? )

1) EPF is RM4000 x 0.11 = RM440
2) Taxable salary is RM4000-RM440 = RM3560
3) Income tax PCB 2009 Chart show RM3560 taxable salary need to pay RM25


Monthly PCB income tax is RM25.

At last, I’m not a professional tax agent, i’m just a normal worker like you all. Please correct me if above PCB calculation is wrong. Thanks

As per the Malaysian tax rule i am suppose to stay 182 days for the calendar year. but in 2010 i was der in Malaysia for 173 Days.Now also i am in Malaysia.That means from 11 july 2010 to march 2011 i have not left the country .will they link 2010 and 2011 to make a total of 182 days.
I am eligible to be away from the country for 14 days.so will they reduce this 14 days from 182 days?? So that i can make to be a resident .

sorry but i have to ask a really dumb question. tax deduction is done monthly thru PCB. why do we still need to do submission via e-filing. all this while i never gave a damn and have been flat-out ignorant abt this. I know i had to ask someone.

for those salary very high, suggest change your employments to contract base,
then you could knock off your income with your daily expenses like Oil, parking, daily meal (with receipt).

How can you pay the tax?
– It is deducted automatically every month by your employer so no worries

How do you declare your tax?
– You do that betwwen March to end of April every year via the tax declaration form appropriate for you (e.g. BE form for blue collars).

Gov give relief. You may refer to lhdn website. Normally your company will deduct pcb from your pay every month from Jan-dec. So next year by 30 apr, you must submit personal tax, better through e-filing (fast & easy). Many ppl confuse…they thought no need to declare income tax for personal bcos company already deduct from their salary. But that is not the case, you still have to declare. Let say in 2015, your total PCB deducted is RM1200 (assume RM100/month). You have to fill in the tax return form. You need your EA form to do this. You can… Read more »
