If you make RM 100,000 a year living in Malaysia, you will be taxed RM 22,335. That means that your net pay will be RM 77,665 per year, or RM 6,472 per month. Your average tax rate is 22.3% and your marginal tax rate is 34.1%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate. For instance, an increase of RM 100 in your salary will be taxed RM 34.06, hence, your net pay will only increase by RM 65.94.
A RM 1,000 bonus will generate an extra RM 659 of net incomes. A RM 5,000 bonus will generate an extra RM 3,297 of net incomes.
