What is Personal Income Tax?

In addition, there are 2 types of personal income tax in Malaysia, which is charged on a resident individual and non-resident individual who receive income in Malaysia and outside Malaysia that their income is derived or deemed derived in Malaysia. It is important for an individual to define he or she is a resident or non-resident in Malaysia. A person who is individual resident in Malaysia will enjoy personal relief and lower tax rates compared with an individual non-resident. Under Malaysia Income Tax Act 1967, there are quantitative tests to determine the residence status of individuals.

A taxpayer can be selected for audit at any time to ascertain that the amount of tax reported and paid are in accordance with the tax laws and regulations.
Other than tax audit, tax investigation is a more severe enforcement measure taken by the tax authorities to ensure compliance with the tax legislations by taxpayers. Generally, tax investigation will be carried out should there be a suspicion – based on precise and definite evidence – that a taxpayer is deliberately trying to avoid paying tax or has committed an act of wilful evasion under the tax laws.
