Lower EPF contribution = High Income Tax

Found this interesting post and thought would be nice to share

Assume your monthly basic salary is RM4000.

- If your monthly EPF contribution is 11% ( RM440 ), taxable income = RM3560, income tax payable = RM77.
- If your monthly EPF contribution is 8% ( RM320 ), taxable income = RM3680, income tax payable = RM109.

Conclusion : If you choose to contribute 8%, you will end up paying more income tax to the government, which will make the government richer.
