Employers often fall victim to the misconception that Monthly Tax Deduction (“MTD”) computation is simple – just compute based on salary, bonus, benefit, etc. provided to the employee. However, there is much more than meets the eye. It is the employer’s unawareness of complexities of MTD computation which gives the Inland Revenue Board the opportunity to perform a payroll audit. And recently, many employers were audited by the Inland Revenue Board (“IRB”) on its extended scope of Payroll Audit.  MTD was designed for an efficient collection of tax derived from employment income. The new Section 77(C) of the Income tax Act 1967 provides that employees fulfilling certain conditions to opt MTD as final tax. However the burden of proof lies with the employer to ensure that the MTD computation is accurate.
