LHDN/IRB Personal Income tax rebate

Tuesday, April 19, 2011 | |  1 comments

First of all don’t confuse tax rebate with tax relief. Tax relief is the amount deducted from your taxable income, whereas tax rebate is the amount deducted from your income tax. A ringgit tax rebate will worth more to you than a ringgit of tax relief.

Please refer to the schedule below for the rebates starting Year Of Assessment 2009. This schedule is from the IRB (Inland Revenue Board) / LHDN (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri) Of Malaysia.

1) Is it means that no matter my spouse choose for either combined or separate assessment also eligible for tax rebate of RM800?

2) So if my spouse has no any total income, I can entitle for additional of RM400 tax rebate?

We love to hear from you! Leave us a comment.
