Tax slabs of salary income has been reduced from 17 to 6 in the finance act 2012-13 which are as under:

1.            Salary Income less than 400000 tax will be 0%

2.            Salary Income exceeds 400000 but does not exceed 750000  tax will be 5% of amount exceeding 400000

3.            Salary Income exceeds 750000 but does not exceed 1500000 tax will be 17500 + 10 % of amount exceeding 750000

4.            Salary Income exceeds 1500000 but does not exceed 2000000  tax will be 95000+ 15% of  amount exceeding 1500000

5.            Salary Income exceeds 2000000 but does not exceed 2500000 tax will be 175000 + 17.5% of amount exceeding 2000000

5.            Salary Income exceeds 2500000 tax will be 420000 + 20% of amount exceeding 2500000.

I have also developed a salary tax calculator to facilitate salaried persons to calculate their annual as well as monthly tax liability. You may find this calculator at

Amir Bhai I what is the slab of Marginal Relief in 2012-2013

Fahad says:

Asim says:

The slabs mentioned are correct but the tax amounts in addition to the percentage amounts tax are not correct.

Example: In 4th slab the finance bill states Rs. 92,500+15% of the amount exceeding Rs. 1,500,000 … where as here it says “95000+ 15% of amount exceeding 1500000″

Faisal H says:

I think, the formula used to calculate annual income tax for salary ranging from 400,000 to 750,000 is not correct, rather it is based on about 2 to 2.5% tax not on 5%!
if i am mistaken, then do correct me by email…

I am Suhail Sattar, working on a USAID funded project. Tell u what, this is the only good decision made by the Govt (No doubt this is done keeping in view the elections to be held in 2013). Nevertheless, salaried class is happy and especially the ones who get their tax deducted with honesty. :)
Thank you
