Before the new year came, the minimum wage and accordingly other wages were adjusted. With the announcement of the minimum wage as being non-taxable, the next question raised is what would happen to other wages?. Will there be tax exemption for every wage earner’s income equal to the minimum wage? The answer is not clear yet.

However, the income tax tariff that will be valid in 2022 with the Income Tax General Communiqué Serial No. 317 was published in the Official Gazette on 21 December 2021.
