These bonuses can have many components like it can be based on employee’s performance or industry performance or team performance. It can be a mixture of all these. Whatever be the way of calculating bonus, the tax calculation for all these will be the same. Employers have to deduct tax as they deduct it in the case of employee’s salary. However tax rates on your bonus depends on your tax bracket. If adding this bonus component to your salary takes you from a lowed slab rate to a higher slab rate then higher tax rate will be applicable to you. For example; if the employee’s taxable income is Rs. 4, 90,000 then he is coming under the slab rate of Rs. 200000-500000 considering his age below 60 years. With annual bonus of Rs. 25, 000 employee’s income jumps from Rs. 4, 90,000 to Rs. 5, 15,000 by which such employee needs to pay tax at the rate of 20% on Rs. 15, 000 as this income comes under the slab rate of Rs. 5, 00,000 to Rs. 10, 00,000. As per the Indian tax law, bonus received by an employee from an employer will be considered as part of salary and such amount will be taxable in the financial year on due or receipt basis whichever is earlier. If bonus amount is declared during the financial year then it has to be considered for tax calculations even if it is not received by the employee. However, if you can prove that there were uncertainties on the payment or quantum of bonus and because of that you did not get it then bonus will be taxed in the year in which it is quantified or became certain for payment or received whichever is earlier. akash says Bonus is not part of salary then how can company do this?
