Professional tax is a tax that is levied by a state government on all individuals who earn a living through any medium. This should not be confused with the definition of professionals that indicates people such as doctors. This is a tax that is to be paid by every single earning individual. The calculation and amount collected may differ from one state to another. The owner of a business is responsible to deduct professional tax from the salaries of his employees and pay the amount so collected to the appropriate government department.

Since it is a tax that is levied by the state government, it tends to differ from one state to another. Each state has a slab that it declares and the professional tax is deducted based on these slabs. There are some states and union territories that do not charge professional tax too.
There may also be situations where sources of income falling under different sectors will be also being liable for a separate tax.
