Dear,
what is misunderstanding?
Note the following examples,
<b>Category 1</b> If your company has 20 employees, out of those, salary of 10 employees is subjected to the income tax deduction u/s 149, then Rs. 1500 (150*10)will be the amount of professional tax regardless of company's tax obligation toward professional.
<b>Category 4</b> Those establishments, whose income is not subjected to the taxation under Division 2 of part 1 of first schedule, shall have to pay Rs. 500 toward professional tax obligation.

In my opinion, Other categories do not require any explanation.

As I have understood in the light of information provided by Faisal Bhayee that it is a local or provincial tax. Just like as education cess is levied in AJK.

Faisal you ussually found on Tax Forum. Please participate on other forums also.

Dear Awais,
Professional Tax is levied on provincial basis, It may be levied by different names on different provinces, However , in Karachi, many of those taxes are imposed which are not found in other cities.

Thanks for your encouragement for contributing on other forums, I hardly have time to even contribute on any forum like other professional members consecrate their precious time for the forum,
However, i will try best to be found on other forums also.
