 The Taxable Income Level For A Single Person

Our BPO services will assist you in payroll taxation issues. You may be aware that in general, the minimum taxable income level has been BDT 300,000. However, there are rare circumstances where this limit fluctuates. In unusual instances, the following is the minimum taxable threshold:

Types of person                                                                                                                                                                                        

Total taxable income (BDT)

If a taxpayer is the father or legal guardian of disabled children, his or her minimum taxable income level for each disabled kid will be BDT 50,000 greater than his or her usual minimum taxable income threshold.

However, if both the father and mother of a disabled kid are taxation payers, then any of them will be eligible for this payment.

So now we have the minimum income tax return threshold, and if this exceeds a person's income, he or she will be required to pay taxation to the National Board of Revenue in Bangladesh.

 Minimum Tax Ceiling       


If a taxpayer's taxable income exceeds the specified taxable threshold set out in the preceding paragraph, the taxpayer should be required to pay the following minimum taxation:


Minimum Tax (BDT)

North City Corporation of Dhaka, South City Corporation of  Dhaka and Chittagong City Corporation


Any other city corporation


Outside city corporation


It indicates that if a taxpayer's taxable revenue increases BDT 300,000 but his or her computed tax due is less than the amount shown in the table, he or she must pay above that amount as taxes to NBR for the taxpayer in question.

Mr Rahim, for example, if his total taxable income is BDT 320,000 and the minimum tax threshold is BDT 300,000, his tax due will be BDT 1,000 (BDT 320,000-300,000)X5%.

However, even though his real tax burden on his taxable income is BDT 1,000, he is required to pay BDT 5,000 as a minimum taxation.

The tax refund is not taken into account here. The taxpayer is eligible for a tax break on his investment allowance if he meets the NBR's requirements.

The Final Settlement Of Tax Treatment

Section 82C deductions from any of six provisions shall be regarded as final settlement.

If you have a BDT 300,000 investment in saving instruments and have earned BDT 300,000 in interest, you will get BDT 270,000 after deducting taxation of BDT 30,000 at source at a rate of 10%, which comes under final settlement.

Your overall taxable income from other sources is BDT 580,000.

So, how much will be your liability in taxes?

BDT 880,000 (580,000+300,000) is your entire taxable income. However, you must put aside the earnings from savings instrument interest when calculating your taxation due since it comes within the final settlement.

So, disregarding interest on savings instruments, your tax liability would be BDT 33,000 ((880,000-300,000)X10%).

As a result, your investment cap will be BDT 145,000. (580,000X25 percent ). And there will be a tax refund of BDT 21,750 on this amount (145,000X15 percent ).

The tax amount would be BDT 11,250 after subtracting the tax rebate from the ordinary tax liability (33,000-21,750).

As a result, you must now add BDT 30,000, which is deducted as a final settlement, to your ordinary tax due, resulting in a total tax liability of BDT 41,250 (BDT 11,250+30,000).

You just have to pay BDT 11,250 because you previously paid BDT 30,000 as final payment at source. This is the amount owed to NBR in taxes.

 End’s Word   


If any taxes are deducted from your income by a responsible person, you must obtain a challan from that respectable citizen before submitting your income tax return to the NBR. Because you must include copies of your challans with your income tax return as proof of payment.
