Latest news update:

In a notification issued in 2019, the Government of Maharashtra has amended rule 11(3) and rule 28(1) of the Maharashtra State Tax on Professions, Trades, Callings and Employments Rules, 1975. As per this, the professional tax liability limit for submission of returns for certain people has been increased from the existing Rs.50,000 to Rs.100,000. 


Payment of professional tax in Maharashtra can be done quickly on the Mahavat website. In fact, e-payment is mandatory for those making the payment monthly. You are required to make payment and file returns monthly if your tax liability is over Rs. 50,000 for the year. This must be done by the last day of the subsequent month. If your liability is less than Rs. 50,000, you can wait until the end of the financial year in March to make payment and file returns.
