How is tax residency determined, and what does it affect?
To be considered a tax resident, an individual must be present in Malaysia for 182 days or more in a calendar year. Visit the website of the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia for more details on tax residency criteria.
As a tax resident, an employee will be taxed based on the progressive tax rate and will be eligible for individual tax reliefs. Read more about the types of tax reliefs on the website of the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia.

How is the monthly tax calculated?
To calculate the monthly tax payable, without taking into account any tax reliefs, we first multiply the annual gross salary by the applicable tax rate below to find the annual income tax payable. Then, we divide the resulting amount by the months employed.
