 Calculation Using The New Tax Rates Calculation Using The Old Tax Rates ExampleIf the salary of an employee is 2,000 Birr.By referring to the above table, we can see that 2,000 birr falls in the No. 4 row. So, Tax Rate = 15% and deduction = 142.50Income Tax = (2,000 Birr x 15%) - 142.50 BirrIncome Tax = 300 Birr - 142.50 = 157.50 BirrEmployee Pension = 2,000 Birr x 7% = 140 BirrEmployee Net Income = 2,000 Birr - 157.50 - 140 = 1702.50 BirrNet Income = 1,702.50 Birr ExampleIf the salary of an employee is 2,000 Birr.By referring to the above table, we can see that 2,000 birr falls in the No. 4 row. So, Tax Rate = 20% and deduction = 117.50Income Tax = (2,000 Birr x 20%) - 117.50 BirrIncome Tax = 400 Birr - 117.50 = 282.50 BirrEmployee Pension = 2,000 Birr x 7% = 140 BirrEmployee Net Income = 2,000 Birr - 282.50 - 140 = 1,577.50 BirrNet Income = 1,577.50 Birr
