Central Provident Fund (CPF)
If you make S$120,000 a year living in Singapore, you will be taxed S$20,579. That means that your net pay will be S$99,421 per year, or S$8,285 per month. Your average tax rate is 17.2% and your marginal tax rate is 11.5%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate. For instance, an increase of S$100 in your salary will be taxed S$11.50, hence, your net pay will only increase by S$88.50.
A S$1,000 bonus will generate an extra S$885 of net incomes. A S$5,000 bonus will generate an extra S$4,425 of net incomes.
