conditional payroll tax deduction

on 3/21/16, 9:37 AM 1,004 views

what I want : if an employee is a Male then his deduction tax will be 600

and  if an employee is a Female then his deduction tax will be 400

I tried in Payroll >> Salary Rules >> deduction tax

by using this code in 


if (hr.employee.gender== "male"):
 result = ((categories.BASIC + categories.ALW) -500)

else if (hr.employee.merital== "married"):
 result =((categories.BASIC + categories.ALW) -400)
I didn't get computation, I dont know how to fix it 

can anybody please help me.

Try this

if (employee.gender == 'male'):
     result = ((categories.BASIC + categories.ALW) -500)
elif (employee.marital == 'married'):
     result = ((categories.BASIC + categories.ALW) -400)

The " else if " will checks if the employee not a male and if is married (not male and married) [I just wrote it as yours]

Hope it'll work
