Many people misunderstand that when paid the allowance, it will be less taxable according to the amount paid, such as if you take a 1,000-baht allowance, you will get 1,000 baht less tax. This is not correct because they will pay less tax or get a larger tax refund depending on the amount of income and tax rate of each person.
Many people mistakenly believe that a tax allowance is a tax refund that will be earned at all, which is a misunderstanding because even a tax allowance can actually save tax. But the amount of tax refund will depend on the amount of income and the tax rate of each person. For example, if your net income exceeds 5 million baht per year, you will be taxed at a rate of 35%. This means that if you receive a discount of ฿1,000 you will save an additional ฿350 in tax. But if your net income is less than ฿150,000 you are exempt from tax. This way, even with the ฿1,000 deduction, it won’t help you save any additional taxes. because the tax was not paid in the first place.
Many people mistakenly misunderstand the 190,000-baht tax benefit for people over 65 or with disabilities as “Allowance.” But in fact, the law states that this benefit is an income exemption for an income earner aged 65 years old or a disabled person for the first 190,000 baht in income. Therefore, it should be called “tax exempt income.“
Many people confuse the terms expense and allowance as the same term, but they actually have different meanings. In other words, expenses are tax benefits that are legally granted depending on the type of income you receive. For example, having income from a full-time job will deduct expenses in a certain way. But if there is income from interest, the expenses will not be deducted at all. while a allowance is a tax benefit that is provided by law. depending on the status and burden of the taxpayer, such as having to take care of parents, having to pay interest on housing or to pay life insurance premiums, etc.
