    Re: Kindly correct this sentence

    It would be better to say:

    'At present, my salary is $...'

    We tend not to say 'only' when it is to do with our salary if we are speaking or writing in a formal context, which is what this sentence sounds like. If we are talking informally to our friends and moaning about how little we get paid, we might say:

    'I only earn $... a year'
