    Hello All,

    I believe that we are liable to pay ‘Professional tax’ ( of INR 200 per month in Karnataka state ) if I am employed.

    In my scenario , I have already paid 6 months of ‘Professional tax’ in advance (For period Oct 2014 to march 2015 to Tamilnadu govt ) to my previous employer . ( I have proof to support my claim )
    Now my state of employment has changed from Tamilnadu to Karnataka.

    According to section point (4) of 198-B. Levy of profession tax of below link

    (4) Where a company or person proves that it or he has paid the sum due on account of the tax levied under this Chapter or any tax of the nature of a profession tax imposed under the Cantonments Act, 1924 (Central Act II of 1924) for the same half year to any Local Authority or Cantonment Authority in the State of Tamil Nadu, such company or person shall not be liable, by reason merely of change of place of business, exercise of profession, trade, calling or employment, or residence, to pay the tax to any other local authority or Cantonment Authority.

    I am not liable to pay tax to Karnataka govt again for the above mentioned duration. Please state your point of view.

    Thanx ,
