How do you deduct proffessional tax from your Gross salary in ITR 2 ? In which Schedule?



I have paid Rs. 2500/- as Proffessional Tax during the year 2007-08. I want to reduce this amount from my gross salary, but can’t find the right schedule in ITR-2. Please help.

The Gross Salary in my Form 16 is inclusive of proffessional tax. If I reduce the amount of Gross Salary (by the amount of proffessional tax) in ITR2 than the two figures wont match.

  1. In Schedule S (Details of Income from Salary) in column 1 Salary write your net salary for eg. if your gross salary is Rs. 2,00,000 and profession tax paid is Rs. 2,500 then write Rs. 1,97,500. There is no seperate column to shown deduction of profession tax or tax on employment.



  2. as mentioned by indian 1980 there is no separate column in itr for this ,fill net figure in itr form ,we can do so as same is written in itr form instructions also

    Please read instruction number 14a which clearly mentions that if form 16 does not shows correct income tan calculate correct income and fill revised income .
