For those income earning that are subjected to tax, check out the EPF deduction against the taxable income below (example).
If salary = RM4,000,
- choose EPF 11% is RM440, taxable income is RM3,560, so tax is RM77
- choose EPF 8% is RM320, taxable income is RM3,680, so tax is RM109
Is this possible? Is the government trying to ripoff the rakyat. 8% EPF deduction may result the salary earner getting more take-home amount but he or she is also paying more tax !
