1.  Practicing Lawyers registered / unregistered with the Bar Council have to pay profession tax @ 2500/- per annum (in Maharashtra atleast).


2.  LLB graduates, who are employed as a employee (in any capacity / dept.) have to pay profession tax @ 2500/- per annum (in Maharashtra atleast).  Once employed the Registered Advocate cannot practice in the Court as a Advocate, BUT however can represent his employer, in any court, as the "Legal Officer" of the company.

Thnx Sir, But this means i will have to pay Professional tax rs 2500/- as and advocate though i am not practicing and rs 2500/- which my company is deducting ?

I spoke with the person from taxation dept. who had sent the notice. He said u wont have to pay Professional tax for advocate if u are not practicing and as and executive in company your tax is been getting deducted already. i dont trust this person as he was continuously telling to come and see him so that he can bring out some settlemet.

pls advice.
