## 2. How to calculate personal income tax?

There are 2 distinct subjects with different personal income tax rates: Non-resident individuals and resident individuals. For each subject, the method of calculating personal income tax is different. Detailed information is provided below:

### 2.1 For residents with labor contracts of more than 3 months

The formula for calculating personal income tax amount = Assessable income x Tax rate

In which:

Specifically:

• Total income: The amount of money that employees receive through the process of working and investing such as salaries, wages, and other incomes in the form of money or not.

• Deductions: These include family deductions and insurance deductions.

Depending on the salary, the amount of tax payable by each individual will be different

### The progressive tax for a tax rate is as follows:

 Level Assessable income/year (million VND) Assessable income/month (million VND) 1 Up to 60 Up to 5 2 Above 60 to 120 Above 5 to 10 3 Above 120 to 216 Above 10 to 18 4 Above 216 to 384 Above 18 to 32 5 Above 384 to 624 Above 32 to 52 6 Above 624 to 960 Above 52 to 80 7 Above 960 Above 80

Based on the table above, apply the formula below to calculate personal income tax:
