If you make RM 300,000 a year living in Malaysia, you will be taxed RM 92,482. That means that your net pay will be RM 207,518 per year, or RM 17,293 per month. Your average tax rate is 30.8% and your marginal tax rate is 35.5%. 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 35.50, hence, your net pay will only increase by RM 64.50.
A RM 1,000 bonus will generate an extra RM 645 of net incomes. A RM 5,000 bonus will generate an extra RM 3,225 of net incomes.
