We are calculating the average TDS rate on salary because the TDS rate is not fixed and we are calculating on estimated salary. It depends on annual salary and deductions.
If salary increases after few months then the TDS rate will be increased. Not all employees’ TDS rates need to be the same, It may be different because all employee’s salaries are not the same, every employee has a different salary structure or CTC.
As per the above salary slip of Mr. A, Calculate the estimated annual salary or income and deductions.
|A-TOTAL ANNUAL INCOME (63000X12)(ESTIMATED)||756000|
|B-TOTAL ANNUAL DEDUCTIONS (ESTIMATED)||199700|

As per Old Tax Slab:-
|TAX SLAB (OLD TAX REGIME)||TAX AMOUNT|
|TOTAL (556300)||TOTAL (23760)|
Average TDS Rate = TOTAL TAX * 100 / YEARLY ESTIMATE SALAY
